Cookbook of the Month, May 2019: India Cookbook by Pushpesh Pant

Maureen: Why did you pick this book? It’s from 2010 so it’s been around awhile.

Kirstin:  saw it in a bookshop, and it looked like the Indian equivalent of Italy’s Silver Spoon. Miles said that Indian is his favourite food. And we’ve both been there!

Maureen: That’s true, and Tim even lived there for a spell. Though it took him several months to want to eat curry again once he got back.

Kirstin: It comes in its own bag!

Maureen: Why?

Kirstin: Because it’s heavy and it needs its own bag, apparently. It’s quite a big book.

Maureen: I’m looking forward to a month of Indian, but I hope it’s not a wild goose chase to find certain ingredients.

Kirstin: Well, if it is, you don’t have to make it.

Maureen: That’s true.

    I’ve never cooked from this cookbook, but it’s been sat on a shelf with all my other Phaidon books for years. Will be interesting to see if its any good.

  2. I’ve got the ‘France’ book in this Phaidon series (originally published as ‘I can cook!’, a translation of a classic French cookbook) and while I like the recipes well enough, it’s so big it can be difficult to use as a cookbook – like opening it on a counter. I know the India book is large as well so interested to see how you get on with the physicality of the book
