Hardeep's Sunday Lunch
Radio Times
Review by:
David Crawford

This is a staggering programme. While Hardeep prepares a chicken bhuna, Will Riley and Peter Woolf give vivid descriptions of how they first met — though Will would baulk at the use of that mild word — in a violent confrontation when Peter broke into Will’s swanky house in north London.

That they became friends after taking part in a restorative justice programme, and despite Peter being a drug-using, alcoholic lifelong criminal while Will was living an affluent middle-class lifestyle, is a credit to them both. In a fine bit of irony they now describe their friendship as like that of cellmates.

About this programme

3/6. Hardeep Singh Kohli cooks lunch for Peter Woolf and Will Riley in London, continuing his journey around the UK to find some heart-warming and interesting stories. The two men he meets come from very different backgrounds and had forged an unlikely friendship after one broke into the other's house.
