Ravinder Bhogal is an awarding chef, restaurateur, author and journalist. Born in Kenya, to Indian parents, Ravinder’s food is inspired by her mixed heritage and the UK’s diverse immigrant culture.
In Ravinder’s new book Comfort & Joy: Irresistible Pleasures from a Vegetarian Kitchen she uses a series of beautifully written essays to address themes including: ’Breaking Bread’, a brave and honest meditation on food and self-denial, ‘Souper Bowls’, a story of immigration, assimilation and nostalgia, and ‘An Education’, which reflects on Ravinder’s culinary education and inheritance from her mother.
This very special event will include tasters from Ravinder Bhogal’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Jikoni.
Ravinder will be in conversation with broadcaster, journalist and festival patron Samira Ahmed.
