Rather disappointed - I really liked Shelina's very original and quite different cooking on Masterchef and expected more of the same in her book, but it appears to have be watered down in favour of blander, simpler recipies.

So impressed with book, booked a holiday in Mauritius and even though, Im of the greyer community, lm getting married there, in November. My partner wanted to go to Las Vegas etc. My response was, "Everyone, goes to the States, lets go to Mauritius". She agreed; my family were seafarers from Ynys Mon, as far, as l know, nobody from the family has been to Mauritius. So looking forward to it, visiting the local markets and admiring the beautiful sea and skies.

This was a great discovery this summer. The layout of recipes and the photographs are inspiring and a joy in themselves. It made my mouth water even before I tried one of Shelina’s easy-to-do recipes. The ingredients she uses are easy to find and you need neither patience nor be an expert cook to follow her clear and simple instructions. If you are after finger food, it is impossible to overlook the island’s beloved gajak, the gateaux piments - with crabmeat, a twist from Shelina. I have also served spicy aubergine bajas and chilli stuffed with sardine to the delight of my guests. On sunny days of barbecues I suggest the grilled swordfish with pomegranate, on rainy days spent indoors in the kitchen, her cari mutton. For those who prefer something lighter I would say the spicy Mauritian coleslaw. The sweet section of the book is irresistible - her banana lattice for tea time or her lychee panna cotta and mango crème brulee as desserts. For those who have travelled to Mauritius or who wish to be reminded of the island rich exotic and tasty cuisine that was inspired by so many different traditions and cultures, this book is an ideal present. Shelina is indeed a ray of the island’s sunshine on your plate.

Being Mauritian myself, I thought this book would be kind of more new age stuff- however I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of traditional recipes it had! I ended up being really excited about it and have even managed to convince my mother that there are some tweaks you can make to the traditional foods were using to! Great book! Rated it much more than the sunshine diet.

Beautiful recipe book all put together as is the title! I've read the whole book in one go and have highlighted so many I don't even know where to start!
Simply can't wait to get cooking!!!

Bought this book for Christmas and was very pleased. Recipes are very different but not too difficult. Teaches whole recipes but also some basic Mauritian accompaniments. Great book.

Nostalgia on a plate if you are Mauritian or married to one and even if you're not the recipes are not difficult and will give you a taste of the pearl of the Indian ocean

I got this book about 3 weeks back and have already done at least 10 recipes (tandoori chicken, spicy burgers, egg rougaille etc). Just wow. Very easy and amazingly tasty. Can't wait to try the other recipes. Thank you Shelina!

Brilliantly tasty food, mostly with a minumum of ingredients and pretty quick to make. Really can't recommend it enough, buy it!

A delightful book, well written in a conversational style, and with great warmth. The flavours are unusual, with French, Indian and Chinese influences, and there's a balance of sophisticated and comforting recipes. There's an excellent fish chapter. My favourite recipe is a 'daube' made with potatoes and beans, flavoured with thyme, coriander and chilli. So inexpensive but really delicious. I want to go to Mauritius now!
