About the Author
Vivek Singh is one of Britain's best-known Indian chefs. He has been executive chef of The Cinnamon Club since its launch in 2001. He was classically trained in India with the world-famous Oberoi Group. Vivek is a master of Indian cuisine, but he also believes that it should not remain static, but be enhanced and evolved by outside influences. His food, therefore, is a perfect blend of authentic Indian spicing and flavours and modern Western styles and techniques. In 2003, along with the restaurant's founder, Iqbal Wahhab, Vivek wrote The Cinnamon Club Cookbook. In 2006, he wrote The Cinnamon Club Seafood Cookbook, and in 2008 came Curry: Classic and Contemporary. By this time Vivek was not only an award-winning author, but also one of the most respected chefs in the UK, and one of the most recognisable faces of Indian cuisine on TV too. 2008 was also the year that a second restaurant, Cinnamon Kitchen, just off Liverpool Street in London, also opened its doors. Vivek is one of the most innovative Indian chefs at work in the world today. He appears regularly on television, with many appearances on the BBC's flagship cookery programme, Saturday Kitchen.
