Has Anjum Anand stolen her crown?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Madhur Jaffrey's Ultimate Curry Bible (Hardcover)
This is going to sound like blasphemy to many people, but I have been a bit disappointed by this book. I suppose I should have looked at it a bit more closely before buying. What I wanted was a comprehensive guide to cooking curries and I wanted those curries to be from India or thereabouts.
Madhur's book goes chasing variants that have sprung up as far afield as north and south America, and Africa. I wasn't keen.
Dishes I have made have been a bit disappointing for the effort.
I have found I Love Curry to fit the bill for me much better. The kind of curry I am interested in making is explained in a way that allows me to produce results I am very happy with. I was hoping to get this from Madhur's Curry Bible but it was not to be.
Proceed with caution.

Thank you for your review, I am looking at buying my first curry cookbook as I really don't like takeaways and want to try and make my own, I will certainly look at your recommendation.
