It was 1960 when Mrs Pannum picked up her suitcase, her 4 children and had perfected her backcombed bun once more, that she made the journey from Delhi to…Coventry. Once there, Mrs Pannum and her family set up a national chain of successful contemporary Indian restaurants. The restaurants were frequented by celebrities, students, regular folk and Heads of State; but they all had one thing in common, everyone called her ‘Auntie’. Her knowledge of flavour and mindful cooking went straight to the heart of every recipe and everyone who ate her flavourful, comforting food. After retiring, people still asked for many of the recipes and of course, the sauces that went with them.
Due to popular demand, she has interrupted her busy retirement schedule of watching Coronation Street, to produce the sauces again – for everyone.
