Chef, food writer and broadcaster with three decades of culinary experience 

I'm all about making the most of Indian spices in your own kitchenBrought up in Cumbria, I crossed continents and worked as a chef in New Delhi's kitchens, where I cooked in huge hotels, street bazaars, palace kitchens, TV studios and on stoves across India.  Now in London, I continue to create recipes, write about food, and share my skills with fans of regional Indian cooking. Here's what I offer:

cookery classes

 Indian workshops hosted at your home for groups of six or more.  A fun, relaxing and inspiring half-day session, culminating in a sit-down meal.


Industry insight, project development and culinary expertise for media and food companies across print, broadcast and digital. Creative food ideas begin here.
