Mohammed Rahman was honoured to welcome Shami Chakrabati, C.B.E. at Spice Lodge for lunch on Saturday, prior to her appearance at the Cheltenham Literature Festival. Shami said she enjoyed “a wonderful, wonderful meal”. She enjoyed her meal so much that in the evening she returned with Ali Smith, who was interviewing her and also promoting her book, for dinner! ” What better endorsement could the Spice Lodge have?
