With excitement reaching fever pitch over the much anticpated opening of Purple Poppadom, the pressure was on Chef Anand George and General Manager to create two launch events to remember!
Judging from the lovely personal messages and Tweets, our special preview events serving 160 guests over Friday and Saturday 2-3rd December certainly cut the mustard.

We were so pleased to see so many friends including people who have known us for many years, food bloggers, journalists, business associates and loyal guests. They enjoyed a special Chef’s Taster menu showcasing the Nouvelle Indian Cuisine chef has devised for Purple Poppadom.
On Saturday we were honoured to host Julie Morgan MP, who is credited with discovering Chef Anand George when she nominated him for the House of Commons Tiffin Cup, which he won in 2007.
It was marvellous that Julie’s husband and great stateman of Wales, Rhodri Morgan, also attended and he delivered a truly memorable speech full of humour and great knowledge of the evolving Indian restaurant scene in Cardiff. Rhodri called Anand, ‘One of the finest chefs in Wales,’ which was praise indeed.
