By Tony Singh
TASTY is Scottish TV chef and Incredible Spice Man Tony Singh's first book. It does what it says on the tin.
Call it comfort food, street food, sharing food. Food that gives you a hug, warms up your bones and satisfies your stomach. Using everyday ingredients that are easy to cook and even better to eat. Made with style and ingenuity.
Tony Singh is a man who knows no boundaries. A Scottish Sikh chef with a passion for British produce, a taste for spices and a mischievous twinkle in his eye, Tony has taken his cue from the inventiveness of food found in our street stalls - a mashup of culinary influences, simple cooking techniques and inexpensive ingredients - to create over 80 recipes including the McTSingh Chilli Dog, Chipotle Lamb Meatballs, Mackerel & Chickpea Burger, Aubergine Flatbread, and finishing with some truly cross-cultural puds from chocolate samosas, shortcake trifle and pumpkin empanadas.
And how does Tony describe his food? TASTY!
