Her debut book Cook in Boots (HarperCollins, 2009) won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for the UK's Best First Cookbook and was awarded the first runners-up prize of the World's Best First Cookbook at the Paris Cookbook Fair in February 2010.

From dips to dhals and pastas to puddings, the pages are filled with familial narrative; of grandmothers, mothers, sisters and aunts, of shared recipes and communal cooking.

For Ravinder, food should be made and shared with abundance in mind, and this sense of pleasure is conveyed on every page. There is so much I want to make and eat within its pages-from the okra fries with kale-the mango gold coin curry-the strawberry faluda cheesecake-and blissfully a whole chapter on Bread. From Mango and Golden Coin Curry, Shiro Miso Udon Mushroom and Kale Carbonara to Strawberry Falooda Milk Cake , this is food as pursuit of pleasure. I was certainly hooked immediately by both the beauty of the writing in the introductory chapter, the opening words of each chapter and the first dish I tried.

And the recipe I’m delightedly sharing with you today is her Pea, Preserved Lemon and Mint Dip with Radish Salsa, which ticks all the boxes for me!

From the IACP award-winning author of Jikoni, a cookbook celebrating indulgence in vegetarian and vegan home cooking. If the Jikoni cookbook was a feast for the soul, with its nourishing stories and aspiring dishes, then Comfort and Joy is a real feast for the body.

I already have Ravinder’a other cook books so was quick to purchase this one knowing how much I love the others. Measurements are in metric or occasionally vague like "a thumb of ginger", or "handfull of cashews". Ravinder brings the textures, colours, and tastes of this cuisine to life, adding surprising twists along the way. With equal parts passion and precision, she takes ordinary vegetables, kitchen staples and a handful of essential global ingredients (I can never look back now that I've found Zaatar and Pul Biber), to create picture perfect dishes that pack a punch. This book has something for everyone seeking comfort and joy, not just on our tables but in our lives too.

A journalist, chef, and restaurateur, her food is inspired by her mixed heritage and the UK's diverse immigrant culture. It's well-proven that a diet centering fruits, vegetables, beans, grains, and nuts is healthier for us and our planet, but talks of decreasing global meat and dairy intake have for too long been tied to narratives of culinary sacrifice. With decadent, craveable recipes that bring together crisp okra fries with curry leaf mayonnaise, earthy roasted beet salad with blood orange and creamy burrata, whipped feta with tomatoes confit, and so much more, deep frying will prove to be vegetable baptism—and produce literacy prove to be the key to a new culinary life where wellness and indulgence are not nemeses. Raw, modern and sensual, Comfort and Joy applies Ravinder’s creative ingenuity to approachable veg-centric recipes for home cooks. She has authored two books; her last Jikoni: Proudly Inauthentic Recipes from an Immigrant Kitchen , (Bloomsbury July 2020) won an IACP award for Best Restaurant Cookbook and was been shortlisted for the André Simon Award, and a Fortnum and Mason Award for Best Cookery Book .Her debut restaurant, Jikoni, was ranked 56th in the UK by the National Restaurant Awards within 7 months of opening and achieved a coveted place in the Michelin Guide in the same year. Ravinder Bhogal's Comfort And Joy is a revelation-you will never look at "the vegetarian option” in the same way after diving into her inventive, bewitching and mouth watering book.

I love dips, and when I read Ravinder's words 'I'll admit that I don't mind a dip over a proper dinner' I decided a dip had to be first (and also that I would embark on a mission to make her my friend.Born in Kenya, to Indian parents, Ravinder Bhogal's food is inspired by her mixed heritage and the UK's diverse immigrant culture. From the first page to the last, every dish looks mouth-wateringly delicious and I have tasted a few! This book is vegetarian, in that "not so as you'd notice" way that I love: you just want to make everything. In this book, Ravinder brings together her signature style of storytelling, with a collection of everyday vegetarian recipes that are elegant yet completely practical.
