Bradford Food Stories

About

An evening not to be missed!

This event is the culmination of the Bradford Food Stories Project created and directed by Abda Khan and Sharena Lee Satti, a unique project that has looked at Bradford's relationship with food, and the links to history, migration, society, class, food sustainability and the environment.

Bradford residents have been taking part in creative writing and poetry workshops, exploring Bradford's food culture, past and present, and their own family and cultural food practices and recipes, and have created inspirational new work which they will be sharing at the event.

There will also be two very special guests who will be joining us:

In Conversation with Waqar Mughal

Waqar, who was named Chef of the Year at the Bradford Curry Awards 2022, is the third-generation grandson of the founder of the now legendary Sweet Centre Restaurant on Lumb Lane, which was one of the earliest Asian restaurants to open its doors to the public back in 1964. Waqar will join us to talk about his family's journey from humble beginnings to one of Bradford's most famous restaurants which has been featured on TV programmes such as BBC's 'Len and Ainsley's Big Food Adventure' and 'Britain's Best Takeaways', as well as discussing his grandfather's legacy, and what lies next.

Irene Lofthouse

Irene is a Bradford poet, spoken word artist, story collector, social historian, actor and director. Irene will be joining us to talk about the history of Bradford in terms of its food cultural heritage, and she will be sharing details about Bradford's long history as a destination for refugees and migrants from all over the world.
