Reza Mahammad

 Celebrity chef and Spice Prince of India

Reza is best known as flamboyant TV chef and main talent for the Food Network UK. He has received high praise for his last three series Reza’s African Kitchen and Reza, Spice Prince of India and Reza, Spice Prince of Thailand/Spice Prince of Vietnam. Reza has recently completed a new 25 episode series with Jenny Morris entitled Reza and Jenny’s Food Academy which launched in 2015. 

Reza hosts regular workshops and events at his cookery school, Chez Cartier, near Bordeaux, France. Surrounded by Cognac vines and rolling hills, Reza’s beautiful 19th Century home and former distillery receives food lovers from around the globe to cook alongside him in his state of the art kitchen.

The British Curry Awards awarded Reza the special recognition award 2015 for his contribution to the UK curry industry.

Reza’s Indian Spice was published with Quadrille to much acclaim, winning 2nd prize in the Gourmand World Cookbook awards (Indian section) and Editor’s Pick in The Bookseller. Drawing from his encyclopaedic knowledge of Indian food, Reza combines Indian and Western flavours to stunning effect, delivered in his informal, humorous style. 

Reza cut his televisual teeth on Flavours of India in 1993/4 but he really came into his own as co-presenter with Sanjeev Bhaskar on Delhi Belly in 2001 for UKTV.  The much talked-about series is still being repeated on air to this day and has lost none of its popularity.  In 2002 Channel 4 came looking for the next big star for their hugely popular series A Place in France and found it in Reza Mahammad. This resulted in the completion of the next two series,A Place in France II and III.  Reza’s relationship with UKTV resumed with Coconut Coast in 2003 and was followed by United States of Reza in 2004.
