I try to read books on the week­ends – I pre­fer an ac­tual pa­per­back. I am now read­ing AlWaleed about Saudi Ara­bia’s Prince Al Waleed, by Riz Khan. An Em­bar­rass­ment of Man­goes by Ann Van­der­hoof is my favourite book – it’s a story of let­ting go of work to cook and travel around the Caribbean. It’s a great es­cape read for ama­teur food­ies. My fa­ther would quote Max Ehrmann’s Desider­ata, an old poem with dif­fer­ent ori­gin sto­ries, to me and my two sis­ters through­out our child­hood. Th­ese lines have shaped the way I live life: ‘Go placidly amid the noise and haste… be gen­tle with your­self… strive to be happy’.
