Discover India on your doorstep with this exclusive walking and tasting tour of Southall with awarding winning food author and historian Monisha Bharadwaj
Monisha will take us on a tour which will challenge any preconceptions people may have of Southall and show the colours, vibrancy, flavours and architecture the Indian community have bought to the area. We'll also be exploring the Hindu and Sikh religions, and we've organised for you to have a meal in the Sikh temple (Sri Guru Sigh Sabha Gurdwara).
This is the second time the meetup will be held - having been the first ever World in London experience a few weeks ago. Demand was so high we wanted to run it again.

She has won numerous awards for her work including 'Cookery Writer of the Year' and has written 14 books, appeared on numerous television shows and written regular newspaper columns. She now runs an acclaimed cookery school - Cooking with Monisha - and has recently appeared as a guest lecturer at SOAS to give a series of talks on 'The History and Culture of India through its food'. World in London is incredibly honoured to have such a talented individual as a host for one of our first events.
