Inspired – Understatement!!!

23 July 2019


So the Cricket World Cup has just finished, great home tournament, great achievement for our guys
but what struck home for me was the support from all the different cultures whether it was England,
Pakistan, India, Australia and so on, all in one place at peace coming together to celebrate the same
moments together even in today’s world.
How does this relate to The Red Lion Hotel and inspirational to food?? Well let me explain:
My Junior Sous Chef is a man called Shahid Iqbal from Pakistan and he inspires me by bringing us all
together with the specials from his cultural background he serves on a plate here in the kitchen
every day
Shahid’s home and family may be in Pakistan... but he certainly has another home and family in my
kitchen here at The Red Lion Hotel
