I purchased this book after seeing Bridget White on YouTube & I must say this book & others by this author are exceptional cook books, as it focuses on Anglo-Indian cuisine, a dying cuisine only cooked by the Anglo-Indians, a dying breed themselves, after the end of the British-raj. Everything written In all of Bridget's books & on her food blog, is one hundred -percent accurate & examples of classical Anglo-indian dishes such as Chicken Country-Captain, Pepper-Sausages & the famous Porco De Vindaloo (Pork Vindaloo in Portuguese, a far-cry from the Birmingham & Bradford Curry-house versions that dominate British cuisine, as it isn't fiendishly hot, nor is it pronounced ViNDERLOO either :-) As an Anglo-indian descendant I rate this book & if you are looking for alternative Indian foods, that aren't mainstreamed, this is the one for you. Thank you Bridget for writing this book & your others.

I love it because the recipes are like home made food that my mother used to make. Very good book.Wish you could get the real one by Mrs Dora Limmond. She was the original recipe writer and I cannot buy this book anywhere now.
