Gurpareet Bains first came to the international spotlight in 2009, when he created the World’s Healthiest Meal – a simple Chicken Curry with Blueberries and Goji Berry Pilau – which contained the antioxidant-equivalent of 23 bunches of grapes.
His debut recipe book, Indian Superfood, was published by Bloomsbury in July, 2010 and is a no.1 bestseller. His distinctive culinary concept acknowledges the USDA finding that nearly ¼ of the top antioxidant-rich foods available to us are, in fact, spices. He combines these spices in abundance with nutrient-dense vegetables, fruits, low-fat proteins and nuts – widely known as superfoods – to create Indian Superfood, a collection of the world’s most antioxidising recipes.
In June, 2012 Gurpareet unveiled his second recipe-book and culinary concept, Indian Superspices. By using spices in medicinal quantities he creates lab-inspired recipes that help to alleviate everyday ailments; and proves the robust Indian kitchen is the ideal laboratory in which to explore the medicinal and culinary possibilities of spices together.
Gurpareet has been featured in nearly every major newspaper in the UK and India, in addition to receiving coverage from the ABC, BBC & CNN.
His celebrity fans include their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Gwyneth Paltrow, Goldie Hawn, Dame Vivienne Westwood, Chris Evans, Dermot O’Leary, Sanjeev Bhaskar OBE, Meera Syal MBE, Theo Paphitis, Simon Mayo, HRH Prince Mohsin Ali Khan of Hyderabad, as well, as celebrity chefs Ching-He Huang, Vicky Bhogal, Anjali Pathak and Mark Diacono.
Gurpareet has worked as a chef for The Mövenpick Hotel, and is a nutritionist. He is based in London, and is aged 38. He is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio London & BBC Asian Network. His nod of approval from the food industry came in 2011 when Gurpareet was crowned Chef of the Year at the English Curry Awards.
The Insomnia-No-More Curry from his recipe-book, Indian Superspices became an international phenomenon in 2012 and was formally recognised as a British icon by the Experimental Food Society in November 2012. Indian Superspices was also recognised by the Huffington Post as one of the top 50 cookbooks of 2012. Most recently in December 2014, he created the world’s healthiest Christmas Dinner. Gurpareet is currently promoting his new book, The Superfood Diet, published by Bloomsbury in May 2014.
