Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Cyrus Todiwala OBE

Where: Wardington’s Original Stage - Outer Bailey

Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL FIH is a chef, restaurateur, educationist, author and entrepreneur. Genial and down-to-earth, his accessible persona masks an encyclopaedic knowledge of food history and cuisine and many a sophisticated turn in the kitchen.

Together with his wife Pervin, Cyrus runs four restaurants. The soon to reopen Café Spice Namasté at Royal Albert Wharf is a 25-year-old institution and the longest running Michelin BIB Gourmand restaurant (‘good food, good value’).

 

Two hotel restaurants bear his name: Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen at the deluxe Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, and Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen at the Lincoln Plaza London, part of the Hilton Curio Collection. Mr Todiwala’s Petiscos in Buckhurst Hill is a small neighbourhood restaurant located in the London-Essex border.

Following a traditional boarding school education in Maharashtra, India, Cyrus decided on a road less travelled, completing four years of classical chef training in Bombay. He began his career as a hotel chef with the Taj Group, rising to Executive Chef of the sprawling Taj Holiday Village in Goa.
