    Christine Manfield’s ode to Indian cooking quickly immerses you in the colour, spice, strong flavours and glorious chaos of the sub-continent ... a cookbook that’s practical, yes, but also full of heart.
    Gourmet Traveller

    ‘This is my story of India, a story gathered across many visits, connecting with people in various walks of life. The recipes I’ve collected along the way reflect the stories of countless mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sons of daughters, brothers, sisters and aunts, as told to me during my travels.’

    Tasting India is a gastronomic odyssey through home kitchens, crowded alleyways, fine restaurants and street shacks to explore the masterful, complex and vibrant tapestry of Indian cuisine. Along the way, this captivating country comes alive as Christine Manfield describes its food, landscape, culture and traditions with her trademark passion, curiosity and expertise. This award winning cookbook has been fully revised in paperback and includes three new chapters on the Punjab, Gujarat and Hyderabad, plus Christine’s insider tips on where to sleep, eat and shop throughout India.
