Cyrus Todiwala, chef and co-owner of Cafe Spice Namaste, is the most exciting chef working in Indian food today. Reviews have ranged from 'a chef of genius' (Harpers & Queen) to Time Out's declaration that 'If you only go to one Indian restaurant this year, make it this one'. Although classically trained, Cyrus is known for his innovative approach to Indian food. Alongside familiar dishes, he combines traditional techniques and flavourings with more unexpected ingredients to produce delicious recipes such as ostrich tikka, tandoori monkfish and langoustine with tamarind. In this, his first book, over 100 recipes range from starters and nibbles, through meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, to the superb chutneys and relishes - from chilli relish to the more adventurous wild boar pickle - for which the restaurant is also renowned. With its vibrant design and photography reflecting the colourful restaurant style, CAFE SPICE NAMASTE will revolutionize ideas of traditional Indian food and attract a whole new audience to the creative possibilities of this exciting cuisine.
