The Cinnamon Club is a pretty near perfect modern Indian restaurant. Layering flavour upon flavour to sophisticated effect, Vivek Singh's recipes hold up beautifully in domestic kitchens, without ever losing their professional polish. Top marks, too, for the highly seductive cocktail chapter.
The recipes in this cookbook are not very challenging but Vivek Singh is famous for pushing the boundaries and I like that. I refer to this book all the time for recipes and ideas.
