We ate at Mr Todiwala's new Heathrow restaurant on our way back from Europe last year. That was a
superb experience - you might want a London layover just to catch his cooking. His book promises even more - it is witty, graceful and fresh with sparky twists on old favorites. In a crowded field this is a standout

I am glad I bought this book before we saw the BBC TV programme which made the dialogue almost incomprehensible with clashing music! Cyrus Todiwala and Tony Singh make a real contribution to the all-too-often boring British diet by sensitively adding Indian spices to otherwise bland standard dishes. As an example, inovatively including a touch of chilli and cardamom to ice-cream. Similarly other spicey additions are made to time-honoured standards and also common vegetables and meats are made much more more interesting with spices.
The book has been written with a sense of humour while at the same time confirming the authors`commitment to being British in our increasingly polyglot society.
And so back to preparing their beetroot soup recipe for today's lunch.
