239: Raastawala's Rinku Dutt on her new cookbook, divorce, and starting again.
She's a fabulous cook, an amazing entrepreneur, and an awesome author - meet our guest for this episode, Rinku Dutt!
She tells us how she came out of a divorce in her twenties to start a whole new career in India - before moving back to the UK to launch her hugely successful street food business, Raastawala. We also hear about her brilliant new cookbook, Kolkata: Recipes from the Heart of Bengal, and how she managed to write it while being eight months pregnant. Ellie reminisces about one of the best things she ever put in her mouth, and Helen shares a curry recipe from her own culture.
