Sumayya Usmani

Cookery Demo

Sumayya Usmani, author of Summers Under the Tamarind Tree, will be with us at Mainstreet on Fri 5th May to give a cooking demonstration from her beautiful new book, Mountain Berries and Desert Spice.

The book continues her journey of discovery through the exotic cuisine of her native Pakistan, sharing the secrets of her home country’s incredible and varied desserts, infused with Sumayya’s own modern twist. The 70 authentic and family recipes travelfrom the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains in the north (where berries and fruits growin abundance), via the fertile Punjab (with its rice and grain-based desserts) to the Arabiansea in the south, where saffron and cardamom-laced sweet recipes are a favourite.

Praise for Summers Under the Tamarind Tree
