Hardeep @ Keyhouse Kitchen Opening
The World Curry Festival’s star, Hardeep Singh Kohli, came to the opening of the new training kitchen at Bradford’s Keyhouse – a venue which helps house and train the homeless of the area. The kitchen is a new project to help train the homeless grow and cook their own food.
A great event and a great cause, love shooting events like these.
The star of the weekend gave generously of his time, a very passionate and moving speech about his journey with food and how he’d always dreamed of opening such a venue to help the homeless. He certainly left a fantastic impression with everyone I spoke to after the event, and we’re looking forward to him returning in the future.
One of the main events Keyhouse runs to raise money is a “sleep out”, where people are given one the bags you see Hardeep in and spend one evening sleeping rough in Bradford. Festival organiser, Zulfi Karim, and Hardeep jumped into the bags and gave us some great shots to help promote the next sleep-out event – great sports.
And then they were off to do more engagements in an action packed festival day.
At about 7:30PM we went to see Hardeep cook a Lamb Bhuna live on stage at the festival. Very amusing and loads of great tips – if you saw him you’d know what I mean. Lots of anecdotes and banter with a long haired man in the front row!
A thoroughly enjoyable session from a charming and funny guy. Definitely recommend going to see him if he’s cooking/performing in your area.
