Surti Gujarati Food In A Fab Nutshell!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prashad Cookbook: Indian Vegetarian Cooking (Hardcover)
I bought this book for a number of reasons. The main being that it not only represents Gujarati cuisine, but that it is a showcase for 'Surti' Gujarati food which is quite different from other areas in the Gujarat. Being of Surti heritage, and a mother that insisted we learn to cook from an early age, I am familiar with most of the dishes in the book and cook them regularly. So why buy the book? Because this book is an authentic record of my food heritage that happens to be well presented/ designed, easy to follow and informative. I'm sure many of us foodies fantasize about creating a cookbook about their food insterests and heritage, and I'm so glad someone has answered my dreams so I don't have to dream anymore! Well done Kaushyben...Abhar!
