MERSEYSIDE chef, author and TV food expert Nisha Katona will visit Heswall's Linghams in March for a book talk and signing. 

The 51-year-old from Ormskirk is best known for being CEO, executive chef and development chef of Mowgli Street Food restaurants.

She is the founder of the Mowgli Trust charity which donates over £500k each year to charities such as Claire's House, The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity and Great Ormand Street Hospital.

Nisha received an MBE in the 2019 New Year Honours List for services in the Food Industry.

She regularly appears as a guest chef on shows such as ITV’s This Morning, Sunday Brunch and Lorraine.

Her new cookbook Bold: Big Flavour Twists to Classic Dishes takes her signature style of big flavours and applies them to classic dishes.

Bold is all about "big flavours, surprising ingredient combinations and incredible flavour twists to a collection of international classics, from family favourites to exciting and exotic dishes you may never have tried before, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new".

Small plates, big plates and sweet plates are all included. 

Bold is named after Nisha's signature punchy cooking style, brave use of spicing and ingredient combinations, and in honour of the first of her hugely popular Mowgli Street Food restaurants, set up in 2014 on Bold Street in Liverpool.

Nisha will be at Linghams on March 5 at 7pm.
