Jikoni: Proudly Inauthentic Recipes from an Immigrant Kitchen
In Kiswahili Jikoni means ‘kitchen’, a word that perfectly captures Ravinder Bhogal’s approach to food.
Jikoni is a cookbook where recipes display a really rebellious spirit. These proudly inauthentic recipes are what you might loosely call ‘immigrant cuisine’, with evocative stories from a past that illustrates the powerful relationship between food, people, place and identity. The tastes and smells of this brazen new world are sophisticated, welcoming, fresh, exciting and bold.
