My debut cookbook is a celebration of our time, a time when we are becoming more confident, culturally curious cooks. I capture in it the authentic voice of women who, like me, have grown up with parents of English and foreign origin. The sort who store ketchup alongside curry powder and who love Tom Yum Koung as much as Toad in the Hole. We have grown up with the best of both culinary worlds and have access to reliable, authentic culinary knowledge and the opportunity to try something new.
“A real cook book written by a talented food writer. Nadia has captured the smells, atmosphere, unique heritage and family values of our multicultural nation. This book should be the catalyst to a true cookery revolution.”
–Helen Jean Tillott, food economist and writer. Co-author of Gordon Ramsay Cookbooks
“Nadia is hot stuff, the new Nigella with more street cred. They say you learn something new every day and when I picked up The Melting Pot I learnt more in twenty minutes than I have ever learnt from any other recipe book – engaging, charming and fun to read, not forgetting absolutely delicious recipes for all occasions.”
–Katie Samuel, Celebrity writer, Closer
“Informative, exciting and intuitive this is the sort of book that would make even the most kitchen shy punter want to cook something new – and with Nadia’s simple instructions and helpful advice they would always be successful!”
–Matthew Kemp, Director, Underground Catering Company and former chef at The River Café and The Ivy
