India is a Gastronomic Paradise, a Place Different to Anywhere Else on Earth: Christine Manfield
Christine Manfield is one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs. As an award-winning author, her books – A Personal Guide to India & Bhutan, Dessert Divas, Tasting India, Fire, Spice, Stir, Paramount Cooking and Paramount Desserts have piqued the interest of cooks and tickled palates world over.
Her website describes her as a ‘curious cook and a perfectionist, inspired by the culinary melting pot of global flavours’ Her professional culinary life as restaurateur culminated in three ground breaking, highly acclaimed restaurants: Paramount in Sydney 1993 to 2000, East@West in London 2003 to 2005 and Universal 2007 to 2013.
A love of spices and an understanding of the home cook’s need for authentically-flavoured, simple, sustaining food led Christine to develop the Christine Manfield Spice Collection range of spice pastes and condiments – widely available at retail stores throughout Australia (since 1999).
