Gurpareet Bains is a qualified nutritionist, TV personality, columnist and chef. He first came to the international spotlight in 2009, when he created the ‘world’s healthiest meal’ – a simple Chicken Curry with Blueberries and Goji Berry Pilau – which contained the antioxidant equivalent of 23 bunches of grapes. His distinctive culinary concept acknowledges the USDA finding that nearly a quarter of the top antioxidant-rich foods available to us are, in fact, spices. Gurpareet’s best-selling debut recipe book, Indian Superfood, was published by Absolute Press in 2010. He has been featured in nearly every major newspaper in the UK and India and he is a contributor to BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio London and BBC Asian Network. In 2011 he was crowned Chef of the Year at the English Curry Awards and in 2012 he was formally recognised as a British Icon by the Experimental Food Society. Gurpareet’s celebrity fans include Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Goldie Hawn, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Chris Evans, Dermot O’Leary, Sanjeev Bhaskar OBE, Meera Syal MBE, Theo Paphitis and Simon Mayo, as well as celebrity chefs Ching-He Huang, Vicky Bhogal, Anjali Pathak and Mark Diacono.
