My husband is a gourmet cook by hobby, and enjoys all types of foods. I discovered this author quite by accident at the local library, when researching Indian foods and cooking. I decided to buy this cookbook for my husband, after discovering another cookbook by this author. Neither my hubby nor I have been disappointed in our decision to purchase this cookbook. The recipes are incredible. Buying anything with the Betty Crocker name ensures that the recipes will be easy to follow, and fantastically edible. What is different about this particular cookbook is the writing style. Iyer, who won the IACP cooking teacher of the year award in 2004, does not just write recipes that are easy to follow and cook for the novice. He writes with love about growing up in India, and the regions of the country the cooking comes from. And that is only the beginning. For those of us who don't know India, who have never been to India, he writes of the country and of the origins of the dishes that he cooks. Cooking devices used in India are covered, as well as basic needs in terms of what items you will need in the kitchen to cook the food he describes. There is an entire section devoted to spices of India-to me, spices determine Indian cooking-that is not only helpful for the new cook, is extremely educational for the experienced Indian chef. I like the fact that Iyer allows for improvisation to occur in his recipes-you do not have to follow his recipe exactly, if you want to try something different; for it to turn out extremely well and very edible. The recipes are easy to follow, and we particularly enjoyed the bread recipes- all 15 of them! This cookbook is a fantastic gift for the person who is already knowledgeable about Indian cooking, or who wants to learn.
