Since its publication in 1985, Madhur Jaffrey's A Taste of India has become the definitive Indian cookbook and is now reissued in a reduced-format paperback edition. Madhur Jaffrey uses her vast knowledge and descriptive skills, together with a wealth of superb photographs to set the foods of her homeland in their regional context. A Taste of India is a magnificent book, spiced with anecdotes and personal reminiscences, which conveys all the colour and diversity of India's rich culinary heritage. From the mountains of northern Kashmir she has selected a sweet pumpkin and walnut chutney that is served at wedding banquets; from the dry plains of western Saurashtra a deliccious savoury cake made from a batter of rice and split peas. Dishes like these, together with many other sweets, snacks, breads, roasts, skcwered kebabs and pilafs, form an exhaustive collection of recipes that will satisfy the most experienced cook and enthusiastic beginner alike.

From the Back Cover:

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
