Claudia Roden was born and brought up in Egypt. The publication of her Book of Middle Eastern Food in 1968 revolutionized Western attitudes to the cuisines of the Middle East. She continued to write cookery books with a special interest in the social and cultural background of the food. Her books have won her many awards. The Glenfiddich Trophy was given ‘In celebration of a unique contribution to the food that we eat in Britain today'; the Prince Claus Award for Culture of the Netherlands was in recognition of exceptional achievements. In 2010 the James Beard Foundation of America inducted Roden into the Cookbook Hall of Fame for the influence her first book has had on cooking in America.
