This evening at the Sikh Temple Shri Guru Ravidass Sangat in Luton, Goodgym formed an international and interfaith team of cookery students learning the kitchen arts of Langar.

Our hosts welcomed us all on arrival with chai and spiced fritters called pakora, and an introduction to our meal plan for the evening. Langar is about offering a simple nourishing meal to share.

The many hands were turned to chopping, stirring, seasoning, mixing, kneading and rolling. The many stomachs were rumbling in anticipation as the spices blended and the flavours wafted. The many hearts were warmed with a common hospitality. The kitchen was busy to busting.

The supper table seated folks from India, Ireland, England, Italy, Iran, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Morocco and Libya.

Langar is community, connection and cooking, ensuring no-one who comes through the temple door should leave feeling hungry.

And no-one did !! In fact we left with full bellies, recipe books and aprons.

P.S. Jhakaas is hindi for 'awsome'
