Taste of India
by Madhur Jaffrey
Ms. Jaffrey is undoubtedly the
foremost authority on Indian cooking in the west. To her goes the credit for making Indian
food a familiar cuisine. She gave it a new identity and spirit. In many ways, Ms. Jaffrey
took Indian food back from where it came, Indian homes, villages and streets. Reading A
Taste of India, is like reading an Indian Travelogue. Ms. Jaffrey makes food even more
exciting with her personal reminscences. With photographs and recipes from across India,
she covers in style and ease the diversity and richness of Indias ancient, and, very to
the minute heritage. - FOR THE OVERALL INDIAN COOK
