But since the 1980s she has become renowned for her cookery series and numerous best-selling books, showcasing cuisine from the Indian subcontinent.

"She is in great form, and her unique passion, enthusiasm and insight will make this series very special for the viewers," the BBC quoted Amanda Ross, the new series' executive producer, as saying about Jaffrey. (ANI)
