Meet Bridget White Kumar. She is a famous cookery book author, food consultant and Trainer in Colonial Anglo-Indian Cuisine at Bangalore. She has good talent and has authored 7 Recipe books on Anglo-Indian Cuisine. My area of expertise is in Colonial Anglo-Indian Food. She has taken lots of efforts in reviving the old forgotten dishes of the Colonial British Raj Era.
My Recipe books are a means of preserving for posterity, the very authentic tastes and flavours of Colonial ‘Anglo’ India, besides recording for future generations, the unique heritage of the pioneers of Anglo-Indian Cuisine. One of her recipe books ANGLO-INDIAN CUISINE – A LEGACY OF FLAVOURS FROM THE PAST was selected as ‘Winner from India’ under the Category: ‘BEST CULINARY HISTORY BOOK’ (COUNTRIES) by GOURMAND INTERNATIONAL SPAIN, GOURMAND WORLD COOK BOOKS AWARDS 2012.Bridget had assisted many Restaurants, Hotels and Clubs in Bangalore and elsewhere with my knowledge of Colonial Anglo-Indian Food besides helping them to revamp and reinvent their Menus by introducing new dishes which are a combination of both Continental and Anglo-Indian.
Many of them are now following the Recipes and guidance given by me and the dishes are enjoyed by both Indian and Foreign Guests. She is an independent freelance consultant on Colonial Anglo-Indian food related matters. She conducts cooking training workshops and her favourite Anglo-Indian Food Promotion Events which is close to her heart on Colonial Anglo-Indian Cuisine for Chefs and cooks at various 5 Star Hotels and Luxury Resorts all over the country during the last 8 years, such as at the, J W Marriot Hotel New Delhi Aerocity, The Oberoi Hotel Mumbai, Sujan Luxury Rajmahal Palace Jaipur and the Sujan Luxury Sher Bagh Camp in Ranthambore Rajasthan, The Taj Conemara Chennai, The Taj West End Bangalore, Vivanta by Taj Whitefield Bangalore, Bow Barracks Bangalore, The Cochrane Place in Kurseong Darjeeling, The Ivy Unwind Resort Bangalore etc to name a few and also at prestigious Clubs such as The Bangalore Club, The Catholic Club Bangalore, etc. The high light of her training programme is that it is an interactive and hands on programme where the participants are involved in every step of the preparation of the dish.
