A chef, food writer and cookery teacher, Sabrina Ghayour is one of the strongest voices in Middle Eastern food today and is best known for her simple and flavourful Middle- Eastern dishes.

She is also a regular face on the BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen and Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch as well as being a guest judge on The Great British Menu and MasterChef’.

Sabrina’s debut cookbook, ‘Persiana’, was awarded ‘Best New Cookbook’ at the Observer Food Monthly awards 2014 and ‘Book of the Year’ at the 2015 Food & Travel Awards. Her follow up, ‘Sirocco’ and third book, ‘Feasts’, were Sunday Times bestsellers.

Her latest book, ‘Bazaar’, brings her trademark passion for strong flavours and simple ingredients to a collection of delicious vegetarian recipes. A lifelong carnivore, Sabrina has ensured these recipes really pack a punch that guarantee even the most die-hard meat eaters won't feel like anything is missing.

Packed full of easy-to-achieve flavours and depth, each recipe utilises the abundance of varied flavour profiles of the East, from spices, herbs and perfumed aromatics to hearty staples such as grains and pulses, combined with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. You will find salads for all seasons, spectacular sides, bowl comfort, moreish mains and sweet treats.
