Tasting India is a seminal text on Indian cookery and culture. Organised regionally, each chapter holds detailed secret pleasures and food rituals that entice the taste buds. Featuring over 250 recipes for traditional and contemporary home-style Indian dishes, and with everything from Bengali garam masala and dal-stuffed pastries to cabbage salad and spiced goat curry, you'll be spoilt for choice. India is a visual feast and a gastronomic paradise that seduces with its food and contagious hospitality and this book does exactly the same. Sumptuous background imagery brings the page to life and sets the context for the food, immersing the reader in a colourful and aromatic South Asian climate. There's also an exhaustive spice and ingredient and equipment dictionary to help locate and understand the rich blend of flavours that are involved in Indian cookery. The collection of recipes reflect the stories of countless mothers, grandmothers, daughters and sons, making Tasting India a purposeful and enjoyable read.
