CLASSIC TAMIL BRAHMIN BOOK IN A NEW AVATAR. The book won a 'Special Jury Award' at Paris in July of 2009. A one of a kind book 'Classic Tamil Brahmin Cuisine' is a rare documentary of life in a traditional Hindu home in Tamil Nadu. It has photographs running throughout the book. Food occupies an important part in the life of Hindus. Food is offered to ancestors during rituals, to Gods during religious ceremonies and to deities in the temples. A Croatian magazine has written a review on 'Classic Tamil' as being a great book on a traditional life style and eating habits of an ancient community. ANNAM or food is a form of the Almighty 'annam parabrahma swaroopam' according to the Hindu scriptures. All beings are born and live by food and ultimately go back to the earth and merge in it to become food. Food is the supreme medicine of all 'aushadham ucchyathe sarvam'. This new and revised format has rare home remedies passed on to us by our great grandmothers and has now become little treasures used for definitive cures. Go through it and enjoy making the concoctions at home. For more information visit vijisamayal.org

About the Author:

Viji Varadarajan's cookbooks are hugely popular due to their simplicity, authenticity and clarity in presenting age-old recipes. She is a dancer and a fitness freak and a voracious reader.

Review:

Vegetable gardens may be a thing of the past. But with today's focus being on eating local, it helps to look back and remember what our grandmothers did right. This book is all about old fashioned recipes and local ingredients. Things like Chettinad cooking's kalpasi or marathi mukku, or Chennai's trademark molai keerai are what keep these cuisine's distinct preventing Indian food from just becoming a sea of kadai-paneer and chicken 65! --The Hindu newspaper - May 3rd 2008
