This review is from: Rick Stein's India (Hardcover)
I am from India and have lived there most of my life but now living in the UK. I can vouch for the authentic recipes and experiences that Rick delivers. kathi rolls from Calcutta - the food for god. (I will one day open a restaurant in the UK which makes the authentic kathi roll to the Indian standard. I am delighted that there is finally a book published which evokes the smells and tastes of food at home, astonishing that its written by a non indian. Generally, I will never buy a book on Indian cooking written by anyone living outside India, however accomplished they maybe. To me they do not translate the authentic feel, texture and nuance of indian food without westernising it ever so slightly. So imagine my sheer delight at the series and the book by Mr. Stein. No offence to any existing or budding indian recipe writers. I cook well coming from a family of gourmets, and this book offered up most of the secrets to great authentic indian food that I have had passed down to me.
