Not a recipe book,
This review is from: Curry: A Tale of Cooks and Conquerors (Kindle Edition)
As Someone who enjoys all things curry, eating it, cooking it and writing about it, see my blog
I have to say it is unusual to find a book such as this that focuses primarily on the history of the how and the why curry came to be called curry, and the international influences that made it what we all love today. Some fantastic stories and some really good history too, all supported with referencing that demonstrates lots of research and hours spent pouring over everything Indian
This is not a recipe book and the recipes that do appear are there as a reference point rather than something that you would wish to use to cook from.
I liked this book very much it is well written by someone who clearly knows their subject and I learnt a lot it and is a must have I would say for anyone that wishes to appreciate that great tradition behind the myriad of dishes that the world now calls Curry.
