We’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming back Sumayya Usmani, who captivated us all with her expansive warmth, captivating charm, and above all, superb and innovative cooking! Mountain Berries and Desert Spice is the eagerly awaited follow up to Sumayya’s acclaimed Pakistani cookbook Summers Under the Tamarind Tree – a truly delicious book of sweets!

Mountain Berries and Desert Spice introduces home cooks to Pakistani desserts and explores their unique significance in the country’s culture and traditions. These authentic family recipes travel from the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains in the north, via the fertile Punjab to the Arabian sea in the south, where saffron and cardamom laced recipes are a favourite. From the sweet snacks shared between friends over coffee to sumptuous deserts fit for lavish weddings, Sumayya tempts the reader with beautiful, easily achieved recipes that everyone can savour.

Join us to celebrate this exquisite new book and the wonderfully talented cook behind it!

How our event book vouchers work

The full price of your voucher is an advance book deposit against a copy of the book featured at the event, which also guarantees admittance for one person. Event book vouchers are redeemable at any point up to and including the day of the event, but not afterwards.

Refunds and Exchanges

In order to maintain the great value of our event book vouchers, we have to reduce administration to an absolute minimum. This means that we aren’t able to refund or exchange event book vouchers.
