Jikoni means 'kitchen' in Kiswahili, a word that perfectly captures Ravinder Bhogal's approach to food. Ravinder was born in Kenya to Indian parents; when she moved to London as a child, the cooking of her new home collided with a heritage that crossed continents. What materialised was a playful approach to the world's larder, and Ravinder's recipes do indeed have a rebellious soul.

They are lawless concoctions that draw their influences from one tradition and then another - Cauliflower Popcorn with Black Vinegar Dipping Sauce; Spicy Aubergine Salad with Peanuts, Herbs and Jaggery Fox Nuts; Skate with Lime Pickle Brown Butter; Tempura Samphire and Nori; Lamb and Aubergine Fatteh; or utterly irresistible Banana Cake accompanied by Miso Butterscotch and Ovaltine Kulfi.

These proudly inauthentic recipes are what you might loosely call 'immigrant cuisine', with evocative stories from a past that illustrates the powerful relationship between food, people, place and identity. The tastes and smells of this brazen new world are sophisticated, welcoming, fresh, exciting and bold.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This book is a total joy' - Nigella Lawson

This is a wonderful mess of a book: inventive, fresh and deliciously irreverent. Duck Rendang and Paneer Gnudi with Saag are at the top of my cooking list -- Yotam Ottolenghi

'Crazily, gloriously, life-affirmingly delicious ... homely, warm, kind but inventive (in the best way), rule-bending and thoughtful' - Diana Henry 

'Ravinder Bhogal has a brilliant understanding of spicing and pitch perfect taste. Her dishes are the kind that make you sit up and pay attention. She's a true talent' - Jay Rayner, The Observer 

'Ravinder Bhogal is a brilliantly inventive cook, and her book displays the full range of her "lawless spirit", in recipes that deliciously combine her culinary heritage with the new possibilities from a global larder' - Salman Rushdie
