Chef, author and restaurateur Vivek Singh – the man behind the Cinnamon Kitchen restaurants, including Cinammon Kitchen Oxford – talks about his latest book Vivek Singh’s Indian Festival Feasts, his life in food and the setting up of Cinnamon Kitchen and offers some tastings.

A festival is reputedly celebrated every day of the year in India. Singh brings his own touch to traditional Indian festival recipes and offers insight into the significance of food in a country with a history of diverse religions and cultures. He covers festivals celebrated across the world including Holi, Onam and Diwali.

Singh is one of the UK’s best known Indian chefs and a regular on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen and Masterchef. He has pioneered modern Indian food at restaurants such as Cinnamon Kitchen, Cinnamon Soho, Cinnamon Bazaar and Cinnamon Kitchen Oxford. He is author of six cookery books. Here he talks to Mark Sansom, editor of Food and Travel Magazine.

Diners visiting Cinnamon Kitchen Oxford during the festival (March 30-April 7, 2019) can claim a complimentary drink on presenting a ticket to any event at the 2019 FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival.
