Our customer reviews

I fell in love with the look of this book, and was very excited to start trying recipes immediately. I lived in northern India for a year, and was keen to be able to recreate the delicious food I had while I was there. I was so disappointed...

I really didn't find the recipes to be particularly tasty and have given up on cooking any more dishes from it. I followed all to a t but found I ended up having to try to rescue every single one. Photography is beautiful, design and layout is also very well done, but all style no substance I'm more
