Millions of people in this world sleep hungry because they don’t have enough to eat. Find your Feet is one charity who is working with the people in the remote parts of Asia and Africa to help them grow food, so that they can feed their families and make enough money to take care of their families. Curry for change is one of their campaign. People can raise money by hosting a curry night at their houses and generating some donations for Find your Feet or by dining at one of the participating restaurants, where the proceeds will go to the charity. Chef Cyrus Todiwala’s Cafe Spice Namaste is one of the restaurants.
I consider myself fortunate enough to be able to photograph this event at Cafe Spice Namaste with Chef Cyrus Todiwala and Nina Wadia. Both of them cooked a menu in aid of Find your Feet’s Curry for Change, where her cooking skills were put to test under an expert eye of Chef Cyrus.
Nina is an Indian British actress who is currently playing a character called Zainab Khan in EastEnders. She has worked in various comedies and dramas in UK as well as few movies in Bollywood.
It is always a great experience to be at Cafe Spice, whether it is to photograph the food or just to meet Todiwalas. This time I got to meet the junior Todiwala – Jamsheed. He is bachelor in Arts and Design who has created some stunning stuff. Check out his website at http://www.jamsheedtodiwala.com. I got an opportunity to photograph the food in some of his hand crafted wooden platters.
Here are some of the pictures I love from the day.
