A Taste of Madras
A South Indian Cookbook
Rani Kingman

8 1/4" x 10 1/4" • 160 pages • full color photos
ISBN 9781566561952 • hardback • $29.95

Over 130 recipes featuring the best of Tamil home cooking

Rani Kingman, in the first book of its kind specifically devoted to the distinctive flavors of Tamil cooking, shares with us her favorite recipes from Tamil Nadu - where she grew up watching her mother, aunts and grandmother at work in their kitchen - and tells us something of its rich and ancient culture, of everyday life and legend.

In addition to its extensive coverage of vegetarian dishes, this book includes chapters on fish and seafood, meat dishes, rice, breads and pancakes, sauces, pickles and relishes, savory snacks, sweets and deserts.

Beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs of the food and of the landscapes and ways of life of the people of South India, A Taste of Madras is an excellent introduction to this unique and healthy cuisine.

Isabel Rani Kingman was born and raised in Madras, where she studied English literature at college. She now lives in England and gives adult education classes and demonstrations in Indian cooking.
