Dentist hosts dinner party for hit TV show

IPSWICH/KESGRAVE: A dentist who has practices in Ipswich and Kesgrave will be on tenterhooks this Friday to see how he is portrayed in the hit show Come Dine With Me.

Amit Koshal decided to take on the challenge of hosting his own dinner party for three complete strangers to prove to his wife, Anisha, that he can cook.

Over the course of the week, he attended the dinner parties of his three other guests in his home town of St Albans in Hertfordshire, and at the end of each night, they scored each other’s night out of ten.

Dr Koshal said he was “gutted” his menu of Indian food with a twist didn’t impress enough to win the overall prize, but is pleased that he proved he can cook.

The week of dinner parties was filmed for the Channel 4 show in February and will be aired this Friday.
