Not for 'quick-fix' curry paste fans - good!,
This review is from: The New Curry Bible: The Ultimate Modern Curry House Recipe Book (Curry Club) (Paperback)
In our house we both love cooking all kinds of Asian food. Pat's books have been a favourite of ours for many years and yet we have learned new tips and blends of ingredients from this new book.
So many cookery books are published to sit elegantly on some coffee-table, destined never to become dog-eared from frequent thumbing, especially in the UK where we seem to have an obsession with reading about cookery but never doing it ourselves!
Assembling the ingredients is NOT a chore if, as with the spices, you ensure they're always in stock. What are spice drawers for if not for spices? Car keys/elastic bands/spare nails? This book will certainly encourage everyone to have a kitchen that has great smells wafting round the room every time you open different drawers (better and healthier than any artifical air freshener!).
Make time to (re-)discover the joy of making your dinners from scratch - this book positively demands it. The results are rewarding, believe me.
Go for it!
