From the Inside Flap:

Foreword: Evolution of Cooking
The theory of Evolution of Universe has been discussed byDarwin, Einstein, Hawking and others. Evolution has proved the existence of theCreator beyond doubts, but it still remains a mystery to be solved. However wecan feel and behold HIM through his manifestations such as Air, Water andEnergy (Fire) and other elements on the earth. Through his Spiritual Grace, theEarth and Sky turn around regularly.
 
It is said that the "Study of Mankind is Man" and the "Studyof Man is his Mind, Soul and Body". Energy in Body creates hunger andtherefore, great search for Food was done in ancient ages, man to satisfy hungerdepended upon vegetations but subsequently became carnivorous (flesh eating).Thus the necessity of food started the Evolution of Cooking, instead of eatingraw materials.
 
Cooking differs in each country and even in each society andcommunity. Every one says Mother's food is the best. There are reasons behindit. In old days, the mother puts her heart and soul for preparing food for herfamily. She used to get up in early morning, take a bath, pray and then sheenters the kitchen and kindles the fires for cooking meals. Her dedicated workmakes food more delicious. For a family of five members, she always preparesfor seven to eight persons. This is not a waste at all, because she alwayskeeps in mind unexpected guest's, servant's and even dog's needs.
 
In old days, cooking was hereditary, methods, techniques andproportions of a dish were passed on by cooking together, but now-a-days theladies avoid entering the kitchen and depend on market food and try to learncooking by reading books and attending cooking classes, this is in name of"Modernity". Hand-made food binds family members cordially and brings thefamily together at the dinner table.
 
Recently, Chinese and Western food has taken place insteadof traditional, but is heartening to note the Parsis have still stuck to theirDhanshak and Sali-Boti. Therefore Rita has rightly chosen to write about ParsiCuisine. I from the bottom of my heart congratulate her for compiling thiscolossal work successfully. I hope and trust that not only Parsis but othercommunities will appreciate her work of home-made and hand-made food recipes.
 
I sincerely, pray to almighty God to bestow blessing andinspiration to my loving daughter Ritu.
 
Loving Homi Pappa.
 
Rita's father Homi Bhikhaji Munshi holds a MA LLB and wasthe Managing Director of the Union Bank of India in Gujarat.
