More About the Author

Vicky Bhogal emerged onto the food scene at 25 years old with her first cookbook, the bestselling and highly acclaimed Cooking Like Mummyji published by Simon and Schuster in 2003, a love letter to the Punjabi Indian food she was brought up on in Britain. It won the Jeremy Round award for Best First Book at the Guild of Food Writers Awards and short-listed for Best Book at the Glenfiddich Awards.

An avid campaigner of many causes, next was Vicky's brainchild celebrity recipe book for the Make Poverty History campaign, A Fair Feast in 2005, which she compiled and edited. Insisting that 100% of the proceeds go to charity, the book has raised over £100,000 for The Fairtrade Foundation and Oxfam's Make Trade Fair Campaign.

2006 saw the release of A Year of Cooking Like Mummyji, picking up and continuing to explore the much-loved thread of her first book through the recipes of British Asian communities, against the backdrop of the seasons and elegant poetry.

Vicky also created her own authentic chilled foods range, 'Just Like Mummyji's' exclusively for Tesco 2004-2007, becoming a £3.2m brand within 6 months and winning her a Grocer Award in 2006 and short-listing for Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the Asian Jewel Awards 2006, sponsored by Lloyds TSB.

Her fourth book, Flavour: A World of Beautiful Food, was published by Hodder and Stoughton in 2009. Unveiling the global breadth of her kitchen, she takes an array of delicious ingredients and shows how to combine them according to their flavour profiles in simple and imaginative ways, to create exciting new dishes. It was shortlisted as Best Hardback Book in the world under 35 Euros in the 2010 Le Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards.

Vicky happily lives, cooks and eats in her beloved London.

Product Description

Book Description

The eagerly anticipated follow up to Cooking Like Mummyji picks up where the critically acclaimed debut left off, this time exploring authentic Indian food through the unique home cooking styles of additional British Asian communities and set across the sumptuously illustrated backdrop of the seasons, incorporating a year of ceremonies and festivals as varied as Holi, Easter, Rakshabandhan, Diwali and Christmas.

As Vicky explains "Cooking Like Mummyji was a book of personal recipes, many of which were specific to my Punjabi Sikh upbringing. However, as so many British Asians of other communities enjoyed my first book and kindly shared with me unique and special recipes their families make, I wanted to reflect that wonderful diversity in this book".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen of Cuisine! 5 Jan 2010
By Ivory13
Format:Paperback
Like the reviewer Preeti Rai, I also heard of this book from Vicky's website after buying her fascinating and gorgeous book Flavour earlier this year.

This book simply has the most scrumptious traditional Indian recipes, which my Indian friends tell me they make at home but which I haven't come across in an Indian cookery book before, and is bursting with style too. The photos, illustration, poetry and stories all make it feel really special. She does indeed write like a dream and it has lots of interesting cultural information and anecdotes, so, like books by Nigel Slater, Molly Wizenberg and Sophie Dahl, this is definitely one to read and not just cook from in the kitchen.

Buy it even if just for the green masala chicken breast marinade (which I also use for prawns before skewering and grilling - delish) and cashew and prawn rice recipe (which I ate 3 nights in one week!). It's also a great book to give as a gift as it's the kind of book you'll treasure.

I'm now on a hunt for her first book too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not authentic? 19 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am sorry to note that one reviewer stated that the recipes are not authentic, but I wonder, authentic to what? If he/she is comparing it to traditional Indian or Pakistani cuisine then he/she has not read the book properly! Vicky states quite clearly that the book contains British-Asian and Punjabi classics, ie they consist of recipes collected from Asian families living in the UK.

I think this is a lovely book which is a collection of recipes where British and Asian ingredients are skillfully blended to produce superb flavoured food. Normally, I avoid so-called 'fusion' cooking like the plague as I find it does not usually work. However, Vicky has triumphed here, so maybe authors of other 'fusion' cookery books should buy themselves a copy of this book and learn something.

However, I had to knock off 1 star because I find the recipes quite difficult to read because the text is a light black and on different coloured backgrounds. If the pages were white, then it would be far easier to read. Also the binding is not that brilliant and I feel that if used a lot, pages may fall out. But recipes all the same!

3.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Take away 24 April 2012
By Roz
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this book mainly on reviews of her previous book--now apparently out of print. Balti Lamb etc great but what bothers me is in the Glossary of Terms is the definition of the word jihad? Does Jamie Oliver and et al define the word Crusade? in their cookbooks.
