A stunning celebration of British Indian flavour and culture from a talented food writer, columnist and trend consultant.
In this gorgeous debut, Mother Tongue, the award-winning Gurdeep Loyal showcases the hybrid third-culture cooking of second-generation migrants around the world today.
Born in Britain to Indian parents, Gurd felt constantly pulled by the clashing expectations of both cultures. With a strong passion for food and taste he was able to explore his culinary upbringing – a combination of ‘authentic’ home-cooked Punjabi food, with ‘inauthentic’ curry-house Tikka Masalas, the Western foodie cannon, and a wanderlust for travel in pursuit of flavour. What results is a flavour amplified intercultural cuisine, that is a delicious culinary self-expression of his second-generation experience of the world today.
