My guest today is Romy Gill MBE Romy is an award winning self-taught British-Indian chef and food writer and broadcaster. She has written for publications including the guardian, the telegraph and the evening standard. She’s a regular on TV with her appearances as guest judge on Celebrity Masterchef. She is a judge on the BBC’s food and farming awards and in 2016 she was awarded an MBE in the Queens 90th birthday honours list.
Romy’s style of Indian cooking combines Indian and British cuisine; she combines spices and flavours that she grew up with in India, with ingredients that she was only introduced to when she moved to the UK. She started her cooking career with supperclubs, spices, sauces and chutneys and then she went on to open her own restaurant - Romy’s Kitchen in South Gloucestershire. She released her first cookbook last year and is now amongst many other things a chef on the new adaptation of Ready Steady Cook.
