2.0 out of 5 stars Dire beyond belief, 30 Jan 2012
This review is from: Gordon Ramsay's Great Escape: 100 of My Favourite Indian Recipes (Hardcover)
Now I was going to give this a one star rating but let's face it the food in this book when cooked is edible, I do however question as to who proof read it or maybe I should go a step further and question if the recipes are actually from Gordon's travels?

I have cooked 8 different recipes and none of them actually wowed me, I have been cooking Indian and thai food for many years and the only reason I bought the book was because I saw the episode where gordon went to the Naga region, having grown some Naga chillies this last year figured it'd be nice to try an authentic recipe which the TV episode looked to promise - biggest surprise is that the recipe isn;t even in the book!

When I say I question the proof reading or authenticity of the book I ask you to look at the recipe for Cauliflower Tandoori, the ingredients listed for this make the coating a beige kind of colour and even when cooked don't really colour at all, the images in the book are a very dark brown / tandoori colour, very much a disconnect between the recipes and the photography.

It's not the worst book out on Indian food, if you wish to have some great Indian repertoire then I'd have a look for some Das Sreedharan or Pat Chapman, these are two very different style of cooks but both deliver amazing food from their published efforts!
