MS Life is the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s national conference, which covers all aspects of living with multiple sclerosis (MS). The highly interactive exhibition will feature everything from leisure & holidays, employment and mobility through to the latest research, medical developments, care and support.
This year, Shahena Ali will be appearing in the exhibition’s Live Kitchen where she will be cooking dishes from her extensive repertoire of traditional Indian and Bengali cuisine. She also enjoys cooking dishes from around the world and is passionate about sharing her knowledge about food to encourage and inspire others.
Commenting on the event, Shahena said:
“The Live Kitchen at this year’s MS Life exhibition is going to be fantastic. I am looking forward to demonstrating how easy to make many Indian dishes are, particularly those which are generally perceived to be very complex. I’m also interested in showing people how to make healthy versions of slightly more indulgent dishes. I have a very keen interest in health and I know how important a healthy diet can be for everyone.”
Shahena’s love of cooking stems from her childhood. By the age of nine, Shahena was helping her mother in the kitchen and experimenting with different ingredients and techniques. After University, Shahena had a spell working in Bond Asset Management, before she was drawn back into the world of cooking and has never looked back since.
Inspired by Gary Rhodes, Shahena has a natural flair when it comes to demonstrating her cooking. She has a vast knowledge of food from across the globe and as well as cooking for dignitaries and MPs, Shahena uses her talents to bring the best food she can to the masses as Creative Director for an Indian restaurant group.
Shahena Ali will be demonstrating her culinary talents at MS Life, which takes place at Manchester Central, from 29-30 March 2008.
