Dina Begum was born in Bangladesh and has lived in East London since she was four. She has been visiting Brick Lane since childhood and has been witness to the many changes in the area. In her first book, she celebrates the diverse food cultures of Brick Lane: from the homestyle curries she grew up eating to her luscious and indulgent bakes inspired by the many cafes, from Chinese-style burgers to classic Buffalo wings, from smoothie bowls to raw coffee brownies. With contributions from street food traders and restaurants including Beigel Shop, Blanchette, Chez Elles, St Sugar of London, Cafe 1001 and Moo Cantina, The Brick Lane Cookbook captures London at its multifaceted, chaotic, crazy best.
