Curry for Papa

As snow falls on London, an Indian chef remembers her late father’s love of his family, his food and his community.

In this touching film, Sonali Bahri recreates her father’s fish curry with a little help from a phone call to her mother. Sonali’s father oversaw and inspired the training of many young chefs in and around Chennai, Sonali's childhood home. Now, as filmmaker Bryony Wigley watches on, she cooks his favourite dish, a spicy, richly flavored creation as vibrant as his life and personality.
