It was 1960 when Mrs Pannum picked up her suitcase, her 4 children and had perfected her backcombed bun once more, that she made the journey from Delhi to…Coventry.
Once there, Mrs Pannum and her family set up a chain of successful contemporary Indian restaurants throughout the UK. The restaurants were frequented by celebrities, students, regular folk and Heads of State; but they all had one thing in common, everyone called her ‘Auntie’.
Her knowledge of flavour and mindful cooking went straight to the heart of every recipe and everyone who ate her flavourful, comforting food. After retiring, people still asked for many of the recipes and of course, the sauces and pickles that went with them.
Due to popular demand, a love of feeding people and never one to shy away from a challenge, Auntie has come out of retirement to cook again – this time, for everyone.
Family-run in Warwickshire
Whilst Auntie keeps an eye over quality control in the kitchen, the business is run by Auntie's granddaughter, Shireen, and her husband, Gregory. Should you order from us, your order will be lovingly packed by them! Shireen and Gregory can often be found at various food festivals around the UK introducing people to the delights of Auntie's!
