Zainab Jagot Ahmed is a first-time mum and author of the UK's first Indian baby food cookbook, ‘Indian SuperMeals: Baby & Toddler Cookbook'.
Prior to becoming a mummy, Zainab worked in marketing for almost 10 years in the fashion, entertainment and retail industries. However, after the birth of her daughter felt inspired to turn her attention to cooking delicious, nutritious home-made baby food.
As she began the weaning process, she was keen to introduce Asian flavours early to both broaden her daughter's palate, and to introduce her to her culinary heritage. However, unable to find any baby and toddler cookbooks with Asian or Asian influenced recipes, was inspired to invent her own recipes. Soon friends were asking for them too.
After a year spent researching spices, dietary recommendations and various superfoods, Zainab decided to put her research and recipes to good use by writing her own Indian baby food cookbook, giving everyone the chance to try them at home.
