Indian cuisine has a rich legacy of myriad faiths, history, food invasions, cultural landscapes and rituals. This book is richly spiced with the author's memories and personal stories bringing the flavors of India alive.

Wonderful and romantic

This was just what I was looking for! A book of personal stories about Indian food. The author lived and traveled all over India. She reads her book so well too! It was a real joy.

Evocative! Takes one down memory lane, on a nostalgic, delicious trip through India's food stories.

An interesting nostalgia-evoking trip across India - punctuated with delicious food stories. Could have done better fact checking though - Khajuraho is in Orissa? And other such factual inaccuracies.
