We are delighted Saliha Mahmood Ahmed, winner of BBC’s title of MasterChef UK 2017 is going to join us on Wednesday 24 July to speak about her MasterChef experiences. Saliha saw off 63 other contestants during weeks of gruelling culinary challenges to achieve the MasterChef trophy. During the series, Saliha routinely arrived at the MasterChef BBC studio straight from her night shift as a junior doctor. She practised cooking new dishes either early in the morning or at night around her night shift. Throughout, Saliha produced creative menus of ‘East meets West’ dishes. The winning dessert was a delightful unique combination of buttermilk, saffron and orange blossom panna cotta.

Saliha is specialising in gastroenterology and continues to work as a doctor.

Saliha’s debut book, ‘Khazana’, is a treasure trove of dishes combining her Pakistani heritage with the history of the extravagant Mughals.
