Author(s): Simon Daley
When keen, self-taught home cook Simon Daley tasted his future mother-in-law Roshan's chicken curry for the first time, he was smitten. Simon asked Roshan to teach him her vast personal collection of recipes and now, in their kitchen, a special friendship flourishes. This unique book draws on the extensive repertoire of an exceptional home cook, including traditional dishes passed down from mother to daughter over centuries, from the family's Gujerati roots in India to modern adaptations for life in England today. This is real Indian home cooking with simple recipes and authentic results. Stunning modern photography of Simon and Roshan cooking at home, with step-by-step sequences to illustrate the more unique techniques, complements the lively personal text. Over 100 recipes included.
