Hoppers: The Cookbook from the Cult London Restaurant: Recipes, Memories and Inspiration from Sri Lankan Homes, Streets and Beyond (Hardie Grant, 1)
About this deal
The opportunity finally arose for Karan after he met and married his wife Sunaina Sethi, one of three siblings who founded JKS restaurants – the London based group who at that point already ran the likes of Trishna, Bubbledogs and Gymkhana. After conversations with both Jyotin and Karam Sethi about new restaurant concepts and JKS’s plans for expansion, Karan decided to fully dedicate himself to a career in food, and one concept in particular really appealed to him, ‘opening a restaurant had never really been about the cuisine for me,’ he explains, ‘I just knew it needed to be something close to my heart and something I could represent authentically. But I remember at our wedding in Kerala having a conversation with Karam about doing a Sri Lankan and being very interested. I obviously hadn’t grown up there but there was a lot of that culture around me, I’d travelled there a lot and I just loved the food. Around that time, people in the UK were also coming to understand hyper-regional food and that was something we felt we could really tap into.’
