You can’t but love this “highly subjective” guide to Bombay with its lush, moody photography (much of it black and white) featuring inspiration from the city’s Irani cafés. The authors describe how Parsi, Muslim, Hindu and Christian influences “all jostle on our tables for space” in their London restaurants, influenced by Bombay’s Iranian-style cafés. Try Akuri (a bit like scrambled eggs), Bacon Naan Rolls, Masala Beans, Keema Puffs and more.
from the publisher
A love letter to Bombay told through food and stories, including their legendary black daal' Yotam Ottolenghi
At long last, Dishoom share the secrets to their much sought-after Bombay comfort food: the Bacon Naan Roll, Black Daal, Okra Fries, Jackfruit Biryani, Chicken Ruby and Lamb Raan, along with Masala Chai, coolers and cocktails.
As you learn to cook the comforting Dishoom menu at home, you will also be taken on a day-long tour of south Bombay, peppered with much eating and drinking. You'll discover the simple joy of early chai and omelette at Kyani and Co., of dawdling in Horniman Circle on a lazy morning, of eating your fill on Mohammed Ali Road, of strolling on the sands at Chowpatty at sunset or taking the air at Nariman Point at night.
This beautiful cookery book and its equally beautiful photography will transport you to Dishoom's most treasured corners of an eccentric and charming Bombay. Read it, and you will find yourself replete with recipes and stories to share with all who come to your table.
'This book is a total delight. The photography, the recipes and above all, the stories. I've never read a book that has made me look so longingly at my suitcase' Nigel Slater
