Cooking recipes from homes in the south west coast of India in Southwest France, 33220 Saint-Avit-Saint-Nazaire.

Friday Night Takeaway

We are a husband-and-wife team, Imtiaz Hasan and Corinne Terrasson, leaving a hectic and fast-paced life in London to move with our 2-year-old daughter Mia in 2020, to this quiet part of France. The purchase and renovation of a farm house has given us the opportunity to work with food, Ayurveda and holistic practices and to provide ourselves and those who try our food an experience of home cooking which is far different to the restaurant Indian food here or in other parts of France

Trained in Hotel Management and Catering Technology in the first part of our careers, working with the Taj and Oberoi Group in India and then in London with The Taj Group at their iconic Indian restaurant Bombay Brasserie. Travelling working and living in India and cooking with home cooks, we are passionate about food from the South West coast of India.

"Superb meal-I can’t believe the range of subtle flavours . The potato  Korma style/sauce  was my favourite-really tasty. The meal was very well balanced , with portion sizes just right.  A very talented chef, delicious food. Not normally a fan of biryani you have changed my view on it, Imtiaz!  Extras complemented well and the whole was very good value for money.
l look forward  to the next one…."
