In this new episode of the Salmon Pink Kitchen podcast, Irene and Margaux welcome Numra Siddiqui, head chef and owner of Empress Market, to discuss storytelling in the kitchen.
With Numra, we retraced her journey from an office job to running a hospitality brand where she combines food, family traditions and storytelling. From selecting ingredients to planning a menu, doing the maths and picking dishwares, this episode is filled with tips and Numra’s love for a good story.
This podcast is introduced by the brilliant spoken word artist Amani Saeed, who reads her poem ‘Vermillon’.
Margaux Vialleron’s novel, The Yellow Kitchen, is publishing on 7th July! Pre-orders are hugely important for debut authors so if you can, please consider pre-ordering your copy from your favourite bookshops and retailers. Thank you for your support.
