In­dian Har­vest by Vikas Khanna (Blooms­bury, 2015)

Taste & Travel - - Taste & Travel Library -

Miche­lin-starred chef, tele­vi­sion host, and author, Khanna re­turns to his home in Am­rit­sar to share the food, flavours and sto­ries of his youth. Be­tween the more than 120 recipes, Har­vest is equal parts mem­oir, trav­el­ogue and ref­er­ence book on In­dian cook­ing fun­da­men­tals. There are the ex­pected sal­ads, mains and desserts, but Khanna drills deeper, of­fer­ing a menu that in­cludes de­tailed guides to those less cel­e­brated, but es­sen­tial cor­ner­stones of sub-con­ti­nen­tal cui­sine, the rice, the lentils, the breads. Wrapped around this, the lu­mi­nous colours of In­dia cap­tured in Michael Swamy’s pho­tog­ra­phy.
