Q: Who is the best cook, you or your wife:?

A: Of course it's me, I hope she doesn't read this!!!

Q: Do you ever go out for an English:?

A: Absolutely i go out for an English. My favourit is the Sheppards Pie, but i grew up with spicy food so i created my own version of the Indian Sheppards Pie

Q: What is most funniest remark you got for one of your dish?

A: A group of regular customers had a little competition to see who can eat my hottest dish. When they returned a few days later, they told me that their colleague did
not return to work the next day. Apparently he called into to say that its quite difficult to put on his pants with a bag of ice in it. lol
