Angela Malik’s role in life is to feed the mind, body and soul of her community with vibrant, freshly made and convenient modern Brit-Asian food that is exciting and full of flavour.
After an early career as a chartered accountant, Angela began her culinary training at Leith’s School of Food & Wine in West London, followed by some inspirational work experience at top London restaurants including Bibendum, Vong and with chef Tom Kime.
In 2006, she founded The Angela Malik Cook School and Deli in Acton, which runs cookery courses and masterclasses in Thai, Indian, Chinese and Vietnamese cuisines for beginners to professionals. With a focus on quality teaching in an inspiring and fun environment, Angela has so far passed on her passion for food to thousands of students.
This year she opened her second site, Angela Malik’s Modern Asian Deli in Ealing. The Deli sees Angela’s unique brand of modern Brit-Asian cuisine available for breakfast, lunch and dinner – to take out or eat in.
Her unique duo-boxes – a choice of a protein and two salads - has filled a gap in the market – the most exciting alternative to the lunchtime sandwich, while the Lassi Bar is the first of its kind in London .
“It’s no small ambition, but I want to change the way people cook, eat and live. I think we deserve something different and better for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Many of us are rushing around without the luxury of time to cook freshly made meals every day, but why should a ready-made meal or take away mean you can’t enjoy healthy, exciting and chef-made food?
My food is all made freshly with top ingredients by our on-site chefs. Our goal is to provide an exciting, tasty and healthy alternative to the soulless high street options currently available.
For me food is a sensory experience. The perfect dishes are a delicate balancing of the five tastes; slightly fiery, a touch of sour tang, with perfectly balanced salt and a touch of sweet, underlying it all the power of bitter or umami.”
