While taking a much-needed break in Australia these days, the Akram family ran into none other than celebrity chef George Calombaris! Known for his fun demeanour on everyone’s favourite reality cooking show, Masterchef, George has a great fan following and highly successful career to his name.
The popular chef took to Instagram to share a picture of himself with Wasim and Shaniera, sharing how it was “Such an honour to meet one of the greatest bowlers of all time, the legend Wasim Akram”. He also deemed the two as an inspirational couple for their philanthropic work for the Akram Foundation and sent his best wishes for the people of Pakistan.
Such an honour to meet one of the greatest bowlers of all time, the legend @wasimakramliveofficial who popped in for lunch at our new @hellenicrep in Brighton today with @iamshaniera and their children. Such an inspiring couple with all they do with the @theakramfoundation. Thank you for visiting, and my best wishes to the people of Pakistan. GC xxx
Wasim too, took to Twitter to label George’s food as a ‘gamechanger’, expressing his eagerness to host George if he were ever to visit Pakistan.
Now that’s an Australian connection we totally love!
