Chef Anjum Anand

Darpan News Desk, 02 Nov, 2016

    Chef Anjum Anand has worked across the world in innovative restaurants such as Café Spice in New York, the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles, and the Park Royal Hotel’s Indian restaurant in New Delhi, but her real love is delicious and stylish food that is simple enough to cook at home. She challenges fiercely the assertion that Indian food is a special occasion meal and is determined to make ‘cooking an Indian’ as common as rustling up a stir-fry.

    Chef Anand was one of the first writers to create and write Indian recipes catering for the health-conscious cook and her first book, Indian Every Day: Light, Healthy Indian Food, was published in 2003. Since then she has written six best-selling books on Indian Food; Indian Food Made Easy (2007) – which topped the Amazon best sellers list – Anjum's New Indian (2008), Anjum's Eat Right for Your Body Type (2010) - which won an award in Germany - "I Love Curry" (2010), Anjum's Vegetarian Feast (2012) and her most recent book Anjum's Quick & Easy Indian (2014). She also presented Anjum’s Spice Stories, a 12 part series, filmed in Australia and aired on SBS Food in 2016.

    In July 2011, Chef Anand’s longstanding business dream came true and The Spice Tailor launched. The range of authentic, quality, at-home Indian cooking products started with a range of cooking sauces, which have been hailed as one of the most significant product innovations in the World Foods category in the last decade, rivalling restaurant quality dishes. The range is distributed through all the major multiples including Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrison’s as well as Ocado, Booths and Bugden’s.  She has now also added chutneys and naans to the range and looks to launch further product extensions next year.
