Rice To Meet You, To Meet You, Rice

I was in my favourite Peckham restaurant Ganapati last night when who should walk in with a gang of media mates but Rob's old pal Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. We had a fantastic meal, I chose the Andhra Spicy Lamb with Paratha which was thrillingly hot and spicy. Hugh and his lot were making a bit of a racket and seemed to be having a jolly time though they drank Champagne with their curries which I thought was a bit wrong. What was he doing so far from home, do you think?

Of course Hugh complicated name was drinking champagne with his curry he's posh get old Etonian. I've always taken his foodie credetials with pinch of salt since I saw him buying some Haribo and peperami in the shop opposite my old flat in Holborn.
Your food looked bloody delish mind ;)

How does Hugh FW-posh bloke come to be a mate of Rob's? I thought you knew all the foodies and he just does drug crazed celebs?..

Absolutely nothing wrong with champagne and curry - and you don't have to be posh to enjoy it either!!

Ganapati is not just the best restaurant in Peckham, or South London, or Greater London, or England but the world.
This does come from Indian food starved ex-Peckhamites in the mountains of Andalucia though.And people who like the people at Ganapati very much.

Hello Los Beckmanns! How lovely to hear from you! How is Andalucia? You can't be missing Peckham? Though it is progressing nicely. Ganapati is still brilliant, Montpelier is now a lovely gastropub (free breakfast for kids) and a new Vietnamese cafe coming soon...x x x x x x

Hola Silvana, We enjoy your blog very much. Hopefully our little project will be finished in a couple of months and then we may be free to pop over for a gastro pint in your local. You can check us out on www.losgazquez.com/blog if you like. Say hi to the others for me...

I've often walked past this restaurant.....now I shall walk in! Also am addicted to watching all manner of HFW's programmes - I think it's his hair that does it for me!
