Peter O’Grady (aka Parasuram Das) is a man on a mission in the UK. The smiling irishman has been cooking and feeding people for over 25 years and he does it all for free! “He is one of our best,” says, International Director, Paul Rodney Turner. “Parasuram is just a saintly man with a heart of gold. All he cares about is helping other people. I am so impressed by his determination and enthusiasm to serve day in and day out.”
Recently, Peter was asked to participate in the ITV special cooking show, Food Glorious Food, as judges from the show scoured the country in search of a very special dish that everyone in Britain will, for the first time ever, be able to buy and eat in stores nationwide. Peter showcased his famous “Poor Man’s Feast” recipe and host Loyd Grossman loved it.
Food Glorious Food is a competition for budding cooks – and the prize couldn’t be more mouth-watering – the winner gets to see their dish on the shelves of Marks & Spencer stores all over the UK as well as receiving a cash prize of £20,000.
