Whenever I hear the word curry I’m filled with a longing for spicy hot food with the fragrance of cumin cloves and cinnamon I see deep red colours from lots of Kashmiri chillis tinged with a suggestion of yellow from turmeric I think of the tandoor oven and slightly scorched naan shining with ghee and garlicWhen Indians talk of their food they talk about their. I saw the BBC series that launched this book I loved the colourful photography and production of the films even though I find Mr Stein to be a bit of a pompous arrogant prat This however is not unusual in TV chefs of a certain age and I know from my participation on cooking forums that he appeals to a certain sector of the viewing public However despite my dislike of his TV persona it s obvious in a couple of episodes that he is about to explode at his longsuffering team and treasures a lot of idiotic memes about the India that never was the recipes looked good enough to want the book As a person who lives on a fixed pension I was wise enough to wait until I could find the book secondhand for a fraction of the original price It s a well produced hardcover book which is what I want in my cookbooks The font is big enough to read and the recipes are clearly written I m flat down tired of cookbooks that set the method in 8 point type while the preliminary look at how wonderful I am comment is in 14 point bold There is a huge variety of recipes for all kinds of food from street snacks to desserts and in the main Stein manages to avoid repeating the sameold sameold stuff you will find in dozens of curry cookbooks Another thing that delights me is that not one recipe says refrigerate in the marinade overnight or as long as possible Yes I m looking right at YOU Anjum Anand The longest time in his recipes is one hour and to my mind this makes sense for the majority of cooks many of whom have neither leisure nor facilities for recipes that take hours and hours If you have the ingredients on hand you can prepare any of these dishes in time for lunch None of the thousand step complex recipes of The Hairy Bikers Great Curries a book that looked gorgeous when I bought it but that I have never had time or space to use because of the needless complexity and expense involved in their look at me curriesNow for the uibble The brightly coloured photos are gorgeous to look at and chime with the travelogue nature of the original TV series but they take up a lot of needless space in the book I would have preferred labelled photos of each finished dish in order of presentation Several dishes are photographed but they are not labelled and at times you have to page back and forth to identify what you re looking atThat said the recipes are eminently useable by anyone with any experience cooking their own food from scratch If you re a member of the microwave readymeal generation start with any of Anjum Anand s books and work your way up These recipes are simple delicious and they work if you know which side of a saucepan to put the food in Yes I objected to Stein s poncy ethnocentric TV chef god attitudes like on page 266 where he has the temerity to state I reflected that I probably knew about Goan vindaloo than they his Bangladeshi guides did and the silly idea that there is something intrinsically wonderful about poverty that makes those who live one meal away from starvation not really mind it He can also be totally condescending about the intelligence of other cooks etc His editors should have stepped in at that point But as a professional translator myself I know that sometimes it s better to let the audience know when the speaker or writer holds totally erroneous opinionsAs a cookbook it works And that s really what it s all about at least for me

    This physically sickens me With uotes like the most interesting thing about India is curry first second and last and all the poor people in Kolkata looked really happy surely a universally held opinion Rick Stein's show is riddled with inaccuracies about Indian cooking and reeks of British condescension rather than of Indian spices Dear self appointed guru the world doesn't need to see you feigning your alleged

    This book is part of the TV series in which I enjoy Rick's enthusiasm and elouence But as a citizen of a former colony and developing country I find his romanticization of the British colonial period and the surrounding poverty uite insensitive and obnoxious Nonetheless we appreciate the authenticity and diversity of Indian cuisine as depicted in the series and the book my teddy and I have cooked than a dozen

    I’d seen the series and had tried a recipe from of but have only just got round to getting the book Full of authentic regional recipes I’ve enjoyed working through some of the breads veg and fish recipes and will no doubt try some Some of the dishes are adapted for western home cooking but are all nonetheless
