Brick Lane is famous for many things: for being home to the biggest Bangladeshi community in the UK, for its curry houses and Bengali sweet shops, for its graffti, its long-running market and its beigel shops. Now, its also increasingly well known for its thriving art and fashion scene and the in- credible street food available there. Dina Begum is East London born and bred, a British Bengali who has been visiting Brick Lane since childhood and has been witness to the many changes in the area. In her frst book, she celebrates the diverse food cultures of Brick Lane: from the homestyle curries she grew up eating to her luscious and indulgent bakes inspired by the many cafes, from Chinese-style burgers to classic Buffalo wings, from smoothie bowls to raw coffee brownies. With contributions from street food traders and restaurants including Beigel Bakes, Blanchette, Chez Elles, St Sugar of London, Cafe 1001 and Moo Cantina, The Brick Lane Cookbook captures Lon- don at its multifaceted, chaotic, crazy best.Dina Begum writes the food blog Syrup & Glaze, and has written for The Telegraph and Metro.
