Natasha Sideris is the creator and founder of the successful tashas restaurants. She opened the first tashas café in Atholl, Johannesburg in 2005. Since partnering with Famous Brands in 2008, another twelve tashas have opened countrywide and more recently, two in Dubai. Each of the restaurants has its own ‘signature’ menu and style which range from a New York deli-style menu in cosmopolitan Rosebank, Johannesburg, a Dutch Hugenot-based menu in Pretoria, a sophisticated French-style menu in the affluent Hyde Park Shopping Mall, to a Spanish tapas inspired menu at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Natasha is a passionate self-taught cook with a talent for interior design that is reflected in her beautiful, diverse restaurants. This is her first cookbook.
