Foysal Miah Chef/Patron at the Blue Cumin

Saturday 20th May at 12:30 Foysal Miah, Chef/Patron at the Blue Cumin

Foysal Miah is Chef/Patron of the Blue Cumin, a restaurant specialising in contemporary Indian cuisine in Magor.

Foysal Miah had a passion for cooking from an early age. His parents came to the U.K from Sylhet in Bangladesh and brought with them traditional dishes which were family favourites. When Foysal was fifteen years old his parents returned to Bangladesh for a four week holiday leaving him at home. Foysal used the four weeks wisely and when his parents returned he could cook many authentic Bangladeshi dishes.

With this passion for cooking, in 1990 he decided to make it his career. Foysal opened his first business, a takeaway, in Newport in 1993 and shortly after opened a branch in Rogiet. However, it was his ambition to open his own restaurant.

Blue Cumin is the restaurant he always wanted. Located in Magor Square, the restaurant caters to the people of Magor and surrounding villages. His customers also come from further afield to enjoy both traditional and contemporary Indian cuisine. His menu features many Bangladeshi dishes including meat dishes served on the bone which is the traditional way.

Always keen to introduce new dining experiences, Foysal is planning something different in Indian cuisine. He will shortly be offering a taster menu to his diners. It is an opportunity for diners to taste a selection of dishes in the finest Bangladeshi tradition. Dishes will include those not currently on the menu.

In his demonstration Foysal promises to show his culinary skills and to tempt his audience with dishes that they may not already have tasted.
