Some years spent living in India enhanced Manju’s passion for Indian cuisine, Indian ingredients, Indian spices and her career has since flourished.

Numerous television appearances, national cookery workshops and several books have propelled Manju to be one of this country’s most respected cooks of regional Indian food. Her unique fusion of British & Indian cuisine culminated in the publication of her award winning book ‘Brit Spice’. Other books have followed, each equally inspiring, so we’re delighted to share this latest one with you!
