Curry sensation! Join us for an evening with chef, TV presenter, food writer and founder of Mowgli Street Food Restaurants, Nisha Katona MBE, as she talks about her latest cookbook Meat Free Mowgli.

Environmentalists are calling for us to reduce our meat intake and Indian cuisine, being naturally healthy, flavoursome and meat-free, is fast becoming the go-to cuisine for modern families.

Nisha Katona is on a mission to preserve the authentic Indian cooking of her mother and grandmothers, translating it for a Western audience into recipes that are quick and easy to prepare, healthy and super tasty – perfect for today’s busy lives. Meat Free Mowgli is organised by ingredient to be as useful as possible, and all the ingredients are easy to source. Once again, Nisha weaves her magic, conjuring up incredible flavours with just a handful of carefully paired ingredients. 

Nisha is a self-described “curry evangelist“. Inspired by “how Indians eat at home and on their streets”, she infuses her food with bright flavours and healthy ingredients, to delight tasters. After initially training and working as a barrister Nisha changed careers after identifying a gap in the market for the Mowgli offering and wanted to share her love of everyday Indian cooking with the public. Having first opened in Liverpool in 2014, Mowgli has gone on to enjoy incredible success and critical acclaim and has now grown to 15 restaurants in 8 years, with more to follow. Nisha’s previous books include Pimp My Rice, Mowgli Street Food, The Spice Tree and 30 Minute Mowgli.
