Shahnaaz Ayub is a Bedfordshire based senior child protection trial lawyer by profession which she runs in parallel with being a British born-Indian celebrity chef. She came to prominence when she won a national competition judged by celebrity Chef Cyrus Todiwala 0BE.

As well as being an author of the very popular Perfectly Easy Indian Food cookbook which is the essential guide to cooking traditional Indian favourites which basically “does what it says on the tin“ taking out the complexity and dispensing with the myth by proving that classic Indian dishes can be achieved with ease without compromising on taste and nutrition.

Following the success of her cookbook, Shahnaaz was commissioned to create and host her own television cooking show – two series (each of 10 episodes) called For The Love Of Food which received international acclaim.

After a period of running her own popular cookery course in Hertfordshire, she is currently a chef at the very prestigious Jean-Christophe Novelli Academy teaching her “hands on” masterclass in authentic Indian cuisine, aimed at all levels of ability. The waiting list for the course is a true testimony of customer satisfaction. Recognition of her skills at the Novelli Academy, being amongst the top 25 cooking academies in the world, has led to Shahnaaz being invited to perform her skills in kitchen theatres at national food festivals.

She now has a regular slot with BBC radio where she shares her passion and cooking secrets on Indian cuisine.
