The Kitchen Prescription: THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER: 101 delicious everyday recipes to revolutionise your gut health
About this deal
With two children and a career in gastroenterology it is very difficult to open a restaurant, so I have turned to my love of writing instead! The first book I published in 2018, Khazana, was an exploration of Indo-Persian cuisine, which is the region where I am from. I wrote my second book, Foodology, in 2021 and the tagline is, ‘a food lovers guide to finding digestive health and happiness’. This book explores the amazing organ that is the human gut and the basic scientific concept of why we enjoy what we eat and how factors such as taste, texture and smell all add to the overall foodie experience. My latest book, The Kitchen Prescription, is due to be published Thursday 30 March and features 101 recipes that we can eat to optimise our gut health and it explores the broad ranging implications of better gut health. These recipes are easy to make (in the smallest, most basic of kitchens), incredibly delicious and have the power to lower our risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, and enhance our immunity. I am working as a specialist registrar in hepatology and gastroenterology, so essentially the liver, the digestive system and the bowels are my specialty. There is a huge amount of variety in the work I am doing. I run clinics alongside our consultants, including outpatient and hot patient clinics, I do endoscopy, ward rounds, and teach medical students. What do you love most about your job?
