I bought this book at Costco not really knowing a lot about cooking Indian food, or whether or not this book was even any good. I got it prior to doing any research on all the available Indian cookbooks out there. Just to compare this cookbook with others, I decided to check out some other Indian cookbooks from the library. I checked out 2 Madhur Jaffrey cookbooks, one by Madhu Gadia (New Indian Home Cooking), and Lord Krishna's "The Art of Indian Vegetarian Cooking." Believe it or not, despite the good reviews with all those other cookbooks, I have found "Food of India" to be the most enjoyable, and the food being the most flavorful. I even did research on the people who provided the recipes in this book and found them to be well known Indian chefs. You will not be disappointed with this cookbook. The recipes are definitely authentic.

This book is a must-buy. Recipes draw on the culinary traditions of all regions of India, which means you have a lot of diversity to choose from. Plus, the photography is absolutely amazing -- pictures don't just show the finished meal but add a real element of visual context that makes it truly enjoyable to read in its own right. There are great special sections on spices, street food, tea, etc., which are highly informative. Recipes are super easy to follow and clear -- sometimes suggesting substitutions you can make and suggestions for how to get the right textures using American supermarket ingredients. Probably my favorite cookbook I own.

I, too, found this book on a table in Costco, and was immediately taken with it. The photography is lovely; the book includes a preface outlining the history of food, with regional details of interest; the recipes are intriguing and seem like honest renderings of how authentic Indian food is prepared.

I imagine it sells well at its list price (when it's in stock), so for only $[...], it's worth considering when next you're at Costco.

My edition is falling apart from frequent use! The recipes are easy to follow, list ingredients I can find and provide easy preparation techniques. Every recipe I've used has produced a superb meal. The photography is thoughtful and the insights are valuable. I have hundreds of cookbooks and this is one I reach for again and again.

I cook a lot of Indian food and have taken classes in it as well. This cook book is strong on three levels. One - it gives you some instruction on buying ingredients, availability, substitutions etc. It doesn't just list a nebulus name of some spice you have never heard of. Two - Every recipe is a winner. I mean they are all really great. Three - Each dish has a picture, and that picture is well done. I think a picture of what something is supposed to look like is very helpful. If nothing else it can help give you an idea of the consistency a dish is supposed to have, which is important with Indian food.

Faults - This cooks book is a collection of recipes. It is not intended to give the theory of the cooking style say in the way Yamuna Devi does in Lord Krishnas Cuisine or Julie Sahni does in her cookbooks.

This cook book will enable you to pop out a great dish with pretty much every recipe and that is what a cook book is supposed to do. It might even inspire you to take some courses or read up more about Indian cooking. That's what this book did for me and I have recommended it to virtually everyone I know as probably the best first Indian cook book. That does not mean the recipes are simple. If you want simple and fast, Indian cooking isn't for you. If you want "oh wow, you made this yourself?" reactions at your next dinner party, get this cook book and start two days ahead.

I am of Indian origin and grew up eating my mother's excellent cooking. She cooked by feel & instinct. The recipes in this book come close to my mother's home cooking. Recipes are simple, easy to follow giving excellent results!
