Former Gurkha chef cooks up the spice of life with The Ultimate Taste of Nepal at Woods Restaurant
Signed by the Dalai Lama and endorsed by Joanna Lumley, it’s rare for a debut cookery book by an unknown chef to receive such attention, but then The Ultimate Nepalese Cook Book written by former Gurkha soldier Pemba Lama is no ordinary recipe book.
Now Kent’s foodies will have a chance to taste the fabulous cuisine during TheUltimate Taste of Nepal charity evening, which comes to Woods Restaurant in The Pantiles on Friday 16 November from 7.30pm onwards. The book’s author and Nepalese chef extraordinaire, Pemba Lama, will prepare a delicious Nepalese buffet with every guest receiving a free signed copy of the new recipe book (which normally retails for £14.99). The exotic Nepalese feast (for just £30 per person) will feature some of Pemba’s most exciting dishes from the book, whilst Kent’s own Nicci Gurr of Home Gurr’own (who has provided the delicious puddings for the recipe book) will create a tasty Nepalese pudding with a British twist.
The charity evening in aid of the Gurkha Welfare Trust will see the book’s publishers making a donation to the trust, for every cook book presented to diners, whilst guests will be transported from Tunbridge Wells to the Nepali hill tribe home of the Gurkhas with their traditional music playing throughout the evening. To guarantee your seats at what is expected to be an extremely popular event, pre-booking and pre-payment is strongly recommended – so call Woods Restaurant on 01892 614411 or email your reservation/contact details to email@example.com.
