Guidance and inspiration from an expert.
Floyd spent 2Ĺ months travelling around India filming his TV series and the first third of the book records this time in a Letter from India. In his usual candid and occasioanlly world-weary manner, Floyd compares & contrasts regional foods and customs, highlighting the highs and lows on the way.
The recipes that Floyd picked up on his travels are arranged thematically: spice masalas, rice, thali (the Indian equivalent of tapas), meat, fish, etc. All the recipes are simple to make and the ones I’ve tried so far have, without exception, been superb. Next up is to check out the meat vindaloo…. An ebullient and often quite funny guided tour to the regions, sights and dishes of India.
