Cyrus Todiwala

From ‘chef of genius’ to ‘creator of the classiest curries in the City’ and in 2014 ‘BBC Food Personality of the Year’ this Bombay-born Parsee chef has been called all manner of good things, but the Chef Patron of Cafe Spice Namaste, Mr Todiwala’ʹs Kitchen, and The Park Café in Victoria Park East still has his feet very much on the ground… running.

He cooks, teaches, writes, runs successful restaurants and does more than his fair bit for charity and the community, but Cyrus’ restless, entrepreneurial soul means he’s never going to stand still.

A passionate campaigner for sustainability and buying British, Café Spice Namaste’ʹs list of green awards includes the Sustainable Food Award from the Corporation of London and a ‘ʹSpecial Achievement Award’ʹ for his commitment to the environment from the Footprint Forum.

Cyrus was awarded an MBE by HM The Queen for services to education & training and an OBE for his contribution to the hospitality industry.
