Shelina Permalloo, Restauranteur, Chef and Author.
Since winning MasterChef in 2012 Shelina has been involved with many food related projects. She has also authored two books; the first book, titled Sunshine on a Plate was published by Ebury Press on 20th June 2013; Inspired by her Mauritian heritage, this book takes you on a culinary journey through the island’s classic dishes all with a Shelina twist!
The second book, The Sunshine Diet, released January 2016 is a book packed full of inspiration to help you lose weight and feel great, inspired by her own journey where she lost 22 kilos. “I wanted to show you the dishes that inspire me to feel full, happy and don’t make me feel like I’m on a diet!” – Shelina Permalloo.
Shelina has also been given the opportunity to cater for a number of people in many varying settings, at their home, in a hired location or even as intimate as in their kitchen. Private dining has no limits and Shelina sees it as a great way to get to know people through cooking.
In 2016 Shelina opened her Mauritian restaunt, Lakaz Maman; Mauritian Creole word for ‘Mum’s House’. The food you’ll find there is relaxed, informal street food you can get messy with. No napkins, no airs or graces, just authentic Mauritian street food with a modern twist.
