Author Biography

Shelina Permallo was inspired to cook by her mother and aunt, and preparing and cooking traditional Mauritian food made her feel close to her family and her heritage. It was only in 2011 that she decided to give up a career in diversity and equality to enter the MasterChef competition. Since winning the title, she has cooked at the Good Food Shows and now plans to open her own restaurant serving Mauritian food.
