About the Author:

Ismail Merchant is one of Hollywood's premier movie producers with more than forty films and four Oscar nominations to his name. He has worked with director James Ivory on films such as A Room with a View, Howards End, and Remains of the Day. A native of Bombay, Merchant made his first mark on the film world with the 1961 Oscar-nominated short The Creation of Woman. He is also a master chef, skilled photographer, and the author of five other books, including Ismail Merchant's Passionate Meals: The New Indian Cuisine for Fearless Cooks and Adventurous Eaters (Plume)

From Booklist:

In his second culinary collection, award-winning film producer Merchant (A Room with a View, Howards End, et al.) offers a true medley of cuisines, flavored with some distinctly Indian tastes. Although all Merchant's recipes are named in his native tongue, it's hard to believe that ginger-broccoli soup, tarragon-walnut salad, and cacciatore chicken, among others, have much in common with the land of dals and curries. His contribution to cooking lore and bookshelves (apart from his professional stature) is simplicity; few of his more than 200 recipes are longer than one page, and with some of the more exotic ingredients stocked in the pantry, most are fairly easy to follow. His enthusiasm for cooking is contagious. Barbara Jacobs
