Synopsis: Exquisitely bound and beautifully illustrated - Dining with the Maharajas is the only book on the culinary traditions and lifestyles of the Indian royalty.

Comes with a separate, lighter, paperback KITCHEN COPY of the recipes - to use to put together a royal banquet of your own without comprising the immaculate hardcover copy.

Life in the royal courts of India revolved around entertaining. The palace kitchens were allotted massive budgets to ensure the highest quality of cuisine. Each state had its unique style of entertaining and food traditions - carrying forward these culinary practices are the modern day Indian royals. While the scale of the banquets may have shrunk the passion for food and the age-old family recipes remain.

Dining with the Maharajas: Thousand Years of Culinary Tradition brings the invaluable legacy of Indian royals as ten families open up their palaces and homes to allow you a glimpse into their charmed lives that straddle tradition and modernity.

The chefs of the Patiala royal household have more than 140 recipes for pulao in their repertoire. The Rampur royal family used to serve a minimum of 200 dishes at banquets given for visiting heads of state. The royal kitchen of Mahmudabad has in its collection a recipe for a dessert called Sahnak, which is originally attributed to Empress Nur Jehan. The Sailana royal family had skilled chefs who made puris, which when broken had a bird flying out of each of them.

Dining with the Maharajas showcases the extraordinarily rich culinary traditions of the royal families of Hyderabad, Jammu and Kashmir, Jodhpur, Mahmudabad, Mysore, Patiala, Rampur, Sailana, Tripura, Udaipur and in the process presents the variety and distinctness of royal cuisines.
