A domestic region, defined by time rather than geography, is plumbed in Chronicle's Patio Daddy-o: `50's Recipes with a `90's Twist. Authors Gideon Bosker, Karen Brooks, Leland Payton and Crystal Payton gather representative recipes (Maverick Martini; Mondo Bongo BBQ Chicken) and illustrations that seem lifted right out of Eisenhower-era family magazines. The recipes, while nostalgic, are for now (calling for crme fraiche, small Japanese eggplants and food processors). Dagwood and Elsie the Cow are featured. (Cloth $12.95 96p ISBN 0-8118-0871-8; June)

A number of good Indian cookbooks have appeared recently, including Chandra Padmanabhan's Dakshin (LJ 4/15/94) and Neelam Batra's The Indian Vegetarian (LJ 6/15/94), and Jaffrey's quick and easy recipes are a nice addition to these more ambitious titles. Well known both as an authority on Indian cuisine and as an actress, Jaffrey offers dishes that are authenic-no skimping on the all-important Indian spices-but have been streamlined or are simple enough to be made, on the whole, in fewer than 30 minutes: Delicious Chicken Bits, Spicy Grilled Fish, Chicken in a Green Coriander Sauce. She writes with charm and sophistication, and her mouth-watering recipes are very tempting. For most collections.
