About the Author

Sally Cunningham, has been a professional organic gardener for nearly 30 years. She has been Deputy Head Gardener at the prestigious Ryton Organic Gardens and worked on a variety of projects from setting up Community Allotments to gardener at Belgrave Hall, a garden founded in 1500. Her work with the Plantcultures project (run jointly by Kew Botanical Gardens and Leicester Museums) gave her an opportunity to fulfil a lifelong ambition. Since moving to Leicester in the early 80s she has been intrigued by the exciting mixture of food cultures of that city. What started out as fascination with the huge variety of fresh produce on sale in the Asian shops and market stalls, has turned into her life's work, researching, writing about, cooking and growing these delicious vegetables, fruits and spices.
