Kohli’s cookery and anecdotes left a reassuringly warm aftertaste. ****


The ever-affable Glaswegian makes an excellent host and is well worth a taste ****


I was mightily impressed by his ability to keep a capacity crowd in the palm of his hand.


Following the huge success of its 2010 premiere, Hardeep returns with second helpings of his ‘curried chat show’, in an mouth-watering new lunchtime slot. Featuring great live music and top guest stars.

Hardeep will interview festival guests and stars whilst cooking up a curry that audience members can get the chance to sample. Last year’s guests ranged from Ian Rankin and Alex Zane to Janey Godley and Russell Kane.
