I am in the middle of pursuing a small-time dream..... that is to say, I really want to learn more about the culture and how to prepare the food of India and the sub-continent. I have visited restaurants and cafes and food vendors across the United States and have discovered how much I like the food. It is aromatic and spicy, delightfully different and just plain delicious. So, how do you go about preparing this sumptuous repast in the home kitchen..?? Ahh, that is indeed the question.I purchased five different books as I prepared to start on this journey. I have reviewed four of them so far and none of them have disappointed me. Truthfully, they all vary in quality somewhat but I have gained knowledge from all of them and so I believe that they were all worth the effort. This is the last of the group of five. Just based on the outward appearance, I thought I was leaving the best for last. That may or may not be true, but I will say that this book is certainly one of the best, if not the best.First, let me get one thing out of the way. This book does not follow generally accepted protocol for publishing in that there is no "masthead" bound into the front of the book. The book has a title page, followed by a page for author attributes and then it goes straight into the "contents" page. I looked and looked trying to determine the publisher and the date and the copyright notice, ISBN, Library info, etc., etc. ....... NO LUCK..!!! I finally located the information. There is a single page in VERY small print added as the very last page in the book.... Almost as an afterthought. !! (???) I found most of the information there, although I cannot understand the "why" of it all. ¿Quien Sabe? (Who knows..??
