New paperback version of Floyd’s best-selling culinary guide to India.
Home of rich, aromatic spices, countless regional dishes and a cuisine both envied and emulated around the world, India is a truly remarkable continent. In his latest culinary adventure, Keith Floyd journeys across this varied landscape, meeting the local people, investigating the busy market places and cooking many of the local specialties.
From the green hill stations in the north of the country, through the bustling markets of Delhi, Calcutta and Madras, to the lush rice fields of the south, Floyd’s adventure never stops. Whether he’s taking tiffin with sari-clad memsahibs or cooling off in the sparkling Indian Ocean, haggling his way through a busy marketplace, or taking a ride on an elephant, Floyd captures the very essence of this great continent.
Cooking in his own inimitable style, and using local produce such as spices, dals, ghees, lotus seeds and paneer, Floyd presents a delicious array of dishes to tempt all food enthusiasts. From passandras to kormas, and chutneys to lassis, this book covers all the regions, together with their specialties and their delicacies.
Much more than this, though, Floyd also captures the true experience of India – its sights, its smells, and its wonderful cuisine.
