Wednesday 8th November 2017 at 8pm
A food writer and cookery teacher who grew up in Pakistan, Sumayya Usmani moved to London over ten years ago, but has found home in Glasgow. Sumayya is passionate about sharing the flavours of her homeland with a view to highlight Pakistani cuisine as a distinct one, which is best described as a confluence of the whole of South Asia.
Sumayya is author or two cookbooks: Summers Under The Tamarind Tree (Frances Lincoln) and Mountain Berries and Dessert Spice (Frances Lincoln,), her writing reminisces about food and memories growing up in Pakistan and Sumayya advocates cooking by "andaza", (sensory and estimation cooking), which is how she learnt to cook from her mother and grandmothers; from a very young age.
Sumayya Usmani was named by BBC Good Food as the UK’s go-to expert in Pakistani cuisine, and she has contributed recipes and interviews to numerous publications including The Guardian, New York Times, Delicious, Good Food, Saveur and many more.
She's appears frequently on as radio and television, and co-presents BBC Kitchen Cafe weekly, on BBC Radio Scotland and is a weekly food columnist in The Sunday Herald, Scotland.
Sumayya is flying over from Glasgow especially for the evening to offer you a special #BallymaloeSupperClub menu using the very best of seasonal ingredients from our gardens and the Ballymaloe Cookery School glasshouses.
