Flavour Migrations

5 Feb 2019

In the recent storm of migration debates, the focus placed on the negative can make us forget that Britain is a much nicer place to eat right now. Founder of Southampton’s Lakaz Maman in 2016, Shelina Permalloo is one of the reasons that this is true.

After wowing TV judges and over 6.5 million viewers to win BBC’s MasterChef in 2012, Shelina published the Gourmand Award winning Sunshine on a Plate (Penguin, 2013) followed by Sunshine Diet (2014). Her foundation has always been the ultimate migration cuisine – Mauritian street food dishes she learned from her mother Shila. 

In Flavour Migrations, Shelina talks about how heritage, family and travel have shaped her cooking.
