Format: Hardcover
The first impression when you open the cardboard box that houses the book is that it is beautiful. Its purple colour (for us commoners) setting is very elegant. And the immediate thought that comes to mind before even opening the book is how are you ever going to use this in the kitchen?

It is heavy, cloth bound and way too expensive to put up in a kitchen shelf. Kept figuring this out while opening the package. Once inside there's your solution. A cool "Kitchen Copy" - a paperback copy of all the recipes in the coffee-table book. Good. Major problem solved.

Open the book and the beautiful artwork immediately hits you. Exquisite. From the beginning you start walking into history. A historical treat with stories, anecdotes, those juicy "once upon a time such and such happened" incidences and nuggets of quirky historical tales turned fables. Catches you on from the beginning if you dig all things royal like me. It puts life into books like these (Maharaja of Sailana please take note. A little stuff like these makes books come alive). Tales of Maharaja Bhupinder Singh and his motorcade of 24 Rolls Royce's once used for garbage disposal and how the poor Maharaja died of overeating are just what makes this book special. The book is littered with tales like these.

Beyond the historical nuggets, this book's strongest point undoubtedly is its visuals. Unprecedented access to royal families and the various pictures - both past and contemporary recreate the past. You can visualize in your mind the fine lives of these kings and their ancestors. Something history books in school never seemed to be able to! And the present. Photos of Captain Amarinder Singh, Maharaja of Patiala himself cooking (Page 150) are inexplicably priceless!

This book is both exotic, romantic and an incredible journey into India's historic culinary traditions. The photographs of the royal families of India are a treasure.. Beautifully shot and written very well.. this book is a rare treat.. both cookbook and coffee table book rolled into one.. along with a Kitchen copy of the recipes. how can one go wrong.. and the purple velvet cover makes it a joy to touch.. Kudos to the photographer and writer!
