Shivi Ramoutar: Contemporary Caribbean Cooking

Tues 20th October

Shivi Ramoutar, a chef from Leicestershire who was on Master Chef and got to the quarter finals. She now has her first cookbook – Caribbean Modern – out, and visited Leicester High School for Girls to teach about Caribbean cooking.

Shivi was born in Trinidad to culturally diverse parents and brought up between there, the heady heights of New York, the grassy fields of the English countryside and the eclectic buzz of London. It has meant that her first love, Caribbean food, has also been taken on a journey, still ongoing. With the help of her adventures, Shivi has made it her culinary mission to twist these classic Caribbean dishes and ingredients from her childhood into her own vibrant, fresh and easy-to-make delights. Her first cookbook, Caribbean Modern: Recipes from the Rum Islands, published by Headline is available to borrow in Leicester Libraries. Free, book your place through Highfields Library
