Lumley creates chutney for Gurkhas
Joanna Lumley has helped to create a chutney that will go on sale as part of her efforts to support the Gurkhas.
British food company Sharwood's enlisted the Ab Fab actress to help develop the limited edition Mango Chutney and Kashmiri Chilli - an ingredient from her birthplace Kashmir.
She will launch the product at the Harvey Nichols department store in London before it is rolled out to supermarkets in September.
Sharwood's will donate 10p from each jar sold to the Gurkha Welfare Trust, of which Joanna is vice-patron and which cares for ex-Gurkhas and their families.
She said: "I have been addicted to hot spices since my childhood in the East and the Sharwood's chefs have helped realise my dream of creating a flavoured chutney with chilli from Kashmir, where I was born.
"I am delighted to be introducing this delicious new chutney to the British public as well as supporting the Gurkha Welfare Trust, an organisation close to my heart."
