About the Author

Pushpesh Pant, born in Nainital in 1946 and educated in Nainital and Delhi, is a professor of diplomacy at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He has studied ancient Indian history, international law, and Ayurveda. A regular columnist for national newspapers and magazines, he is also a frequent contributor to radio and television. He writes in both English and Hindi and produces documentaries for television. He is a well-known authority on culinary matters and has published a popular cookbook, Buddhist Peace Recipes (also published by Roli Books). He lives in Delhi with his son, daughter-in-law, grandchild, and his German shepherd, Khampa. Huma Mohsin, born and brought up in Peshawar and educated at Home Economics College in that city, is a cookery expert. Her father belonged to North West Frontier Province while her mother hailed from Punjab - thus the recipes provided by her are an authentic mix of both. Besides rustling up mouth-watering dishes for her family, she is interested in reading and writing short stories. She lives in Peshawar with her husband and five children. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is an incredible visual and culinary journey. If you can't get to India and Pakistan, you will literally read the flavor. Beautiful photographs and easy to follow recipes (which is unusual for a Westerner to say with an Indian cookbook!) make this a vacation between two covers.

I love this book because it is one of the few English language cookbook sources for Pakistani recipes, plus it covers some of my favorite regions in Indian cooking, and is just a beautiful book. All of the recipes are simple, authentic to their locale, and good. It includes a few iconic dishes of every major city along the Grand Trunk Road. It is not extremely in-depth or comprehensive. Just a bit of historical background, amazing pictures, and great, easy to follow recipes. Some of the recipes in this book have become staples in my weekly cooking. A must have for South Asian food enthusiasts!

I you like Indian food, you need thus book in your collection. It's much more than a cookbook. It is a piece of ethnographic research that revolves around food as it is encountered along the GT road. The recipes are genuine and the illustrations are splendid. Clearly the author, Pushpesh Pant, knows his subject, not only food, but also the civilization that produced it. His other seminal tome, India Cookbook, is another must for Indian food lovers. Buy either one, or both, you won't be disappointed.

I've made a few recipes from the book now, and they are quite good, though it feels like maybe English is not the language this was written in originally. The book itself is beautiful. I collect cookbooks, so am happy to have this on my shelf. It's not my first Indian cookbook, nor the easiest to understand if you are trying to figure out the ins and outs of the cuisine, but if you have some comfort with the cuisine, it is a very lovely addition to your shelf.
