SHARJAH: Several top international celebrity chefs will be sharing some of their favourite dishes and recipes with visitors to Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF) at the event’s 10th edition, taking place from April 18-28 at Expo Centre Sharjah.

The renowned chefs from Canada, the US and India along with accomplished chefs from the UAE will participate in live cooking demonstrations at the event’s famous ‘Cookery Corner’, showcasing their culinary skills as they prepare a wide range of new recipes that reflect the cultures of their countries.

Among the chefs is Canadian Bal Arneson, award-winning author, TV Host and Compass Celebrity Chef, who is internationally known as a passionate advocate for simple and healthy Indian recipes, as she believes food can be your medicine. Bal, who is also a TEDx speaker, has TV Shows broadcast in several countries around the world, including the Cooking Channel in US and Food Network Canada.

Host of ‘Spice of Life’, which was nominated for the James Beard Foundation Awards and the NAMIC Vision Awards, Arneson is the author of bestselling cookbooks ‘Everyday Indian Recipes’, which won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award, ‘Bal’s Quick and Healthy Indian’, and ‘Bal’s Spice Kitchen’.

Representing traditional Arab cuisine, SRCF is hosting Canadian Arab chef Suzanne Husseini, the author of the two best-selling cookbooks ‘When Suzanne Cooks’ and ‘Modern Flavors of Arabia: Recipes and Memories from My Middle Eastern Kitchen’. Suzanne has hosted the most popular Arabic cooking shows and has been a guest judge on ‘Top Chef Middle East’.

SRCF 2018 also hosts British culinary expert Nancy McDougall, an enthusiastic food editor, writer and stylist with a keen interest in children’s cooking. Nancy runs cooking classes for children aged 2 – 4 years and her ‘Best Ever Step-by-Step, the Kid’s First Cookbook’ is packed with more than 150 easy-to-follow recipes designed for children aged 5 – 12 years.

Ranging from lunches, picnics and after-school snacks to main courses, desserts and party food, the book contains more than 1,000 lively images and is bursting with ideas and practical advice.

Other internationally recognized chefs include Lara Starr, a Children’s Book Publicist at Chronicle Books, and Radio Producer at KGO Radio, whose latest work is  ‘The Star Wars Cookbook: BB-Ate: Awaken to the Force of Breakfast and Brunch’. The book consists of 29 intergalactic breakfast recipes using Shoufan and biscuits and includes simple but mouthwatering recipes featuring characters and scenes from ‘Star Wars’.

Jenny Tschiesche, one of the UK’s leading nutritionists will also be taking part in SCRF’s Cookery Corner.
