The Food of India : A Journey for Food Lovers. by Carol Selva Rajah and Priya Wickramasinghe

The Food of India : A Journey for Food Lovers. by Carol Selva Rajah and Priya Wickramasinghe. The photography is lovely; the book includes a preface outlining the history of food, with regional details of interest; the recipes are intriguing and seem like honest renderings of how authentic Indian food is prepared. I imagine it sells well at its list price (when it's in stock), so for only $, it's worth considering when next you're at Costco. One of the Better Ones. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 13 years ago. I bought this book at Costco not really knowing a lot about cooking Indian food, or whether or not this book was even any good.

Qane
I cook a lot of Indian food and have taken classes in it as well. This cook book is strong on three levels. One - it gives you some instruction on buying ingredients, availability, substitutions etc. It doesn't just list a nebulus name of some spice you have never heard of. Two - Every recipe is a winner. I mean they are all really great. Three - Each dish has a picture, and that picture is well done. I think a picture of what something is supposed to look like is very helpful. If nothing else it can help give you an idea of the consistency a dish is supposed to have, which is important with Indian food.

Faults - This cooks book is a collection of recipes. It is not intended to give the theory of the cooking style say in the way Yamuna Devi does in Lord Krishnas Cuisine or Julie Sahni does in her cookbooks.

This cook book will enable you to pop out a great dish with pretty much every recipe and that is what a cook book is supposed to do. It might even inspire you to take some courses or read up more about Indian cooking. That's what this book did for me and I have recommended it to virtually everyone I know as probably the best first Indian cook book. That does not mean the recipes are simple. If you want simple and fast, Indian cooking isn't for you. If you want "oh wow, you made this yourself?" reactions at your next dinner party, get this cook book and start two days ahead.

This is the ultimate Indian cookbook to own.

This book explains in detail the delicacies of various parts of India. As many people know, India has culture, language and practices that differ vastly from one state to another. This book encompasses dishes from almost all the states of India. This book also explains when a meal is eaten (e.g. breakfast, special occassion etc). The photos of people, places, and dishes add good value to the book. I have tried many recipes and are quite authentic. (Since India is a large country, the meaning of authenticity of a particular dish varies from place to place). The ingredients are easily available in any specialty grocery store. If not, you can safely substitute/omit some of the ingredients.

A must have for all Indian food cooks out there.

I love collecting cooking books part of the Food of Series, and this book was as expected. Colourful, crisp, and lots of pictures, I was quite content with the condition of the book along with the packaging. The Food of Series is one of the better cooking book collections I own and I am happy to add India to my collection.

I have not cooked any recipes in this book because they are a bit intimidating for me. I love to cook and I cook Indian in the home, but this book is for a more experienced cook with a lot more time. What I loved about the book was all the cultural information on the food and country. I have plenty of friends from India and love the food. This gives me a lot of information in an easy to read format that draws you into the country. I just visited India and plan to read this book again. Its like taking a trip while reading it.

My husband loves all Asian foods and Indian is no exception. My life long best friend is Indian so I often had homemade authentic meals at her house. I had other friends who were also Indian so it was normal for me to eat different cuisines when I wasn't eating at home. My mom on the other hand is the typical southern 7 rotating menu items for the week (including fried chicken and meatloaf of course) so my experience with Asian foods was limited.
A few years ago my husband and I wen to visit a few our friends in Hong Kong. When we came they had their house-help prepare an American dish for us after our long flight. We were very appreciative of course but being that they were both Indian we told them that we really only wanted to eat their food for the rest of our meals at their house. They were excited about this as they love sharing their culture and it made life a little easier for their house-help.
Meal after meal was prepared by their house-help, who is Pilipino, and was amazingly delicious and savory. After a week or so I asked how their help knew how to make all these meals and my friend went into the kitchen and brought out this book. She told me that she taught her help to make the Indian dishes she grew up on and knew were authentic and true using this single cook book. I of course took a picture of it so I could order it when we returned home. Anything that is proved to be good enough for a native Indian (who had only recently moved from her home country) was definitely something I wanted to use too.
When I did finally get around to ordering it and then finally took the time to go through it and prepare a grocery list I was taken by the gorgeous photos, not only of the food but also of India. It is just as you'd imagine; full of color and life and you can almost smell the spices coming off the page.
The book is very easy to use and read. There is an index in the back and each page is clearly marked and the recipes, though maybe a bit intimidating, are actually easy to read and follow. I now have friends requesting an invitation to dinner on "Indian Food Nights".

This cookbook is a fascinating and exciting journey not only to cooking great, authentic Indian food, but to Indian culture. I have made several recipes from this book and each was extremely delicious and unique. There are plenty of beautiful and informative photographs. The only thing I would change is for it to have spiral binding to make it easier to keep open.

I bought this book as a gift for my daughter, because I already have one and love it. Not only does it have beautiful pictures of the foods, but it provides some background for each food group, and the recipes I've tried are yummy. Several have become staple items in our home cooking.
I received this book for Christmas and have used several recipes already. The pictures are beautiful, the recipes are well written and easy to follow, and everything I've tried so far has been delicious.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in Indian cuisine. There is information about ingredients that will help you with some unfamiliar things you may encounter
