Our founder and creative director, Julia Roberts, recently travelled to Kolktata in West Bengal, India to take part in their 10th anniversary literary festival.

The two talks were –

Shaken and Stirred: Global Literary Festivals with a Twist with Michelle Garnaut – Australian restaurateur, Sirish Rao – festival producer,/writer, and  moderator & literary consultant – Meenakshi Alimchandani.

The second panel discussion was Mirch Masala: Indian Flavours of the World with Mallika Basu – Indian cook/food writer/columnists, Manjri Agarwal and Chef and moderator Shaun Kenworthy.

Both events took place on the historic Park Street (officially Mother Teresa Sani) in the centre of Kolkata, a famous thoroughfare in the city which runs through what was a deer park owned by Sir Elijah Impey, Chief Justice of the supreme Court of Calcutta from 1773 to 1789.
