Recipes for life - Book review

 

Recipes for LifeRecipes for Life by Sudha Menon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A treasure chest of 'almost lost recipes' of comfort food for Indians. Very well documented.
Possibly to make it attractive to a larger audience than just the foodies, she has interviewed the Indian celebrities and their take on comfort food. All of them undeniably talk about the food they ate that was made with a lot of love by their mothers, irrespective of their social status then.
My only grouse is there should have been pictures of the food rather than that of celebrities. It would have added value for readers/foodies like me. The pictures of the celebrities are available all over the internet while the pictures of the almost forgotten food would be a tough ask.
Else a great book of recipes!

Bought this book on Amazon

    Well, I too might have wondered at lack of food photos in a cookery book! Still, valuable insights into home cooked yummies is worth having. YAM xx
