Following the exclusive insight interview into the impressive life of Dr Saliha Mahmood Ahmed, Specialist Registrar Gastroenterologist, Masterchef Winner and author of The Kitchen Prescription at 12:00pm with Humphrey Hawskley, join us as we watch Dr Saliha in action!

Growing up Saliha was always very interested in both the scientific and the delicious aspects of health, nutrition and cookery. She tells Goldster, “It was a very medical family and I followed my parents into medicine.  I never lost that love for cooking. And obviously with a gastroenterology specialism you’re looking at how food impacts on the bowel.”  

During her maternity leave, Saliha found herself with the time (and energy!) to cook from scratch.  It was obvious to her husband at least that she had a prodigious talent for cooking - as well as medicine.  So he put Saliha forward for Masterchef.

Join us for this exciting, interactive event and feel free to download the recipes below and cook along live with Dr Saliha to create some delicious and nutritious recipes!

Dr Saliha Mahmood Ahmed
Having been a passionate home cook all her life, Saliha battled 64 contestants in front of 6million viewers to become the winner of MasterChef 2017. A proud mother and wife, Saliha works as a doctor at St Mary’s, Paddington, specialising in Gastroenterology. Balancing a life in food and medicine, Saliha has enjoyed appearing at various food festivals and shows across the country since her time on MasterChef. In her debut cookbook KHAZANA (Hodder & Stoughton 2018) Saliha builds upon her reputation for recreating traditional South East Asian food in a modern and exciting way. It was voted ‘Best New Cookbook’ at the 2019 Observer Food Monthly Awards and Saliha was awarded the title of ‘Best Chef 2019’ at the British Restaurant Awards, as voted for by the public. Saliha’s book FOODOLOGY: A FOODLOVER’S GUIDE TO DIGESTIVE HEALTH & HAPPINESS combines her medical expertise with a passion for gut-friendly, delicious food. It was published by Hodder & Stoughton in 2021 and went straight into the bestseller list. THE KITCHEN PRESCRIPTION was published in Spring 2023 and soared straight into the Sunday Times bestseller list. It is a collection of delicious recipes designed to encourage good gut health. Saliha’s campaign #NoHungryNHSStaff with Neely Mozawala has led to a commitment by the NHS for healthy hot and cold food for hospital doctors to access 24 hours a day. “Saliha is a class act. She’s walked in here and taken her food culture apart and put it back together in a modern and very exciting way. She always does something a little bit extra – something which always surprises us”.
