Climbing the Mango Trees: A Memoir of a Childhood in India

by

Climbing the Mango Trees: A Memoir of a Childhood in India Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether acclaimed food writer Madhur Jaffrey was climbing the mango trees in her grandparents' orchard in Delhi or picnicking in the Himalayan foothills on meatballs stuffed with raisins and mint, tucked into freshly baked spiced pooris, today these childhood pleasures evoke for her the tastes and textures of growing up.

This memoir is both an enormously appealing account of an unusual childhood and a testament to the power of food to prompt memory, vividly bringing to life a lost time and place. Included here are recipes for more than thirty delicious dishes that are recovered from Jaffrey’s childhood.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

The best-selling author of An Invitation to Indian Cooking offers a charming memoir of growing up in Delhi, India, detailing life in a large family marked by dinners in which forty or more members of her extended family would enjoy the savory dishes of the region, recalling her childhood through the window of the food she experienced. Reprint.
