Some Like it Hot: A Piquant History of Curry 3 Dec 2008
By C. T. Sen - Published on
Format: Paperback
This excellent work traces the history of curry from medieval Europe and its early days in India through the Raj and Victorian England to modern Britain, where it is the most popular restaurant dish. David Burnett and Helen Saberi do this through a series of lively biographical sketches of cookbook writers, selections from their works, and many recipes. Some of these writers are fairly well known (Wyvern, Eliza Acton, Mrs. Beeton, Hannah Glasse), others less so (the South African writer Hildagonda Duckitt, Dr. R.F. Riddell, Daniel Santiagoe), but all played an important role in curry's evolution. The book contains comprehensive glossaries of curry terms and accompaniments and of curry ingredients, and is charmingly illustrated. The Road to Vindaloo is an invaluable resource for food writers and researchers, cooks, and curry lovers around the world.
