Shivi was born in Trinidad (many moons ago) to culturally diverse parents and brought up between there, the heady heights of New York, the grassy fields of the English countryside, and the eclectic buzz of London. It has meant that her first love, Caribbean food, has also been taken on a journey, still ongoing... With the help of her adventures, Shivi has made it her culinary mission to twist these classic caribbean dishes and ingredients from her childhood into her own vibrant, fresh and easy-to-make delights.
Dubbed by The Guardian as "Caribbean food supremo", and by BA The Club magazine as "Queen of Contemporary Caribbean Cooking", Shivi has whipped up her tropical delights across London and UK, including her Caribbean street food at Feast food festival in London, collaborating with Luardo's at London's Rum Kitchen, taking over (for one night) the famous Le Coq restaurant in Islington and hosting a Caribbean supper club for Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation Charity, among other events, as well as continuing to run her popular *Lime Supper Club in West London.
Shivi and her recipes have been featured in numerous publications, including The Sunday Times, Delicious. magazine, Good Things magazine, The Metro and The Guardian, to name a few. She has also been featured (and cooked live on air!) on BBC Woman's Hour and Saturday Kitchen.
