Who is the author?:  Josh Katz earned his stripes working in the kitchen at Ottolenghi before opening his own restaurant, Berber & Q, in East London. Taking inspiration from cuisines from all over the world, but with a particular emphasis on Middle Eastern and North African flavours, at Berber & Q, the barbecue plays a central role in the preparation of each dish, with many of the ingredients smoked before being cooked over charcoals. The restaurant has become one of London's best loved restaurants, adored by critics and hungry Londoners alike.
