How British lost out on the excellent cusine of India
I read this this book and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is a caricature of British Raj during its occupation of Indian subcontinenet over a two hundred and fifty years between the 16th and to 20th century. It is a pity that due to a very strict attitude of 'British superiority' over the Indian 'slaves' as they called their servants, British created a mishmash of a cuisine that was neither Indian or English. What a pity!. Today Indian Cuisine has become the national food of Britain. The book is well researched and well written. It is funny, sad and pityful. I hope that the publisher will bring out the secnd edition of the book soon.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
