Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means "full of food" (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. and is "... the universal and timeless kitchen-goddess ... the mother who feeds. Without her there is starvation, a universal fear: This makes Annapurna a universal goddess ... Her most popular shrine is located in Kashi on the banks of the river Ganges."
Her association with the giving of food (wealth) led her in time to be transformed into the Goddess of Wealth Lakshmi
Annapurna Restaurant Chiswick is 45 years old.
Curry West was originally an annual gathering of the Virgin XI and often organized by Ed Scarr. Many Virgins lived in and around the Hammersmith, Chiswick and Acton area so the Annapurna Restaurant became the feasting place of choice. As Virgin XI was absorbed into Nomads so Curry West has become a regular Nomads extravaganza.
