Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lavish Praise for A Taste of India "Bidding fair to be the definitive book on Indian cooking, it is rich with [Jaffrey's] personal reminiscences and anecdotes, her culinary heritage and her vast knowledge of the significance of foods in both their religious and historical contexts." Bon Appétit "One of the few expensive books I believe is worth every dollar. It might be called the definitive work on India's culinary heritage." Chicago Sun-Times "Jaffrey may be the best stylist of today's cookbook writers." Newsday "Certainly the most ambitious, enlightening cookbook ever to come out of India." New York Post "Not only the best Indian cookbook but a unique book about India." Gourmet "This is the book I would unhesitatingly select if I could take just one on vacation." Chicago Tribune "Probably the most beautiful cookbook in years." Metropolitan Home "An impressive and tantalizing tour of one of the world's great melting pots." Publishers Weekly
