Acclaimed chef Cyrus Todiwala prepares this year’s opening festival dinner, with a menu that reflects his own Indian Parsi heritage. The price includes a drinks reception, dinner and wines.

Todiwala is chef proprietor of Café Spice Namasté, Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen, and The Park Café. In 2015, he opened the River Restaurant in Goa and a new restaurant is planned for early 2018. In 2013, he partnered with Tony Singh to present the BBC2 cookery show, The Incredible Spice Men: Todiwala and Singh. He is a popular guest chef on Saturday Kitchen and regularly commentates on the Food Programme on BBC Radio 4. In 2014 he was named ‘Food Personality of the Year’ at the BBC Food and Farming Awards. His sixth book, Mr Todiwala’s Spice Box: 120 Recipes with just 10 Spices, was published in 2016. Todiwala will work with the festival’s consultant chef Paul Bloomfield on the dinner.


Todiwala grew up in India and rose to be executive chef at 11 restaurants in the Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces chain. He moved to the UK in 1991 and opened Café Spice Namasté in 1995.

In association with Oxford Cultural Collective.
