Description
"What you've got to remember about us Bengalis," a friend once told Simon Parkes, "is that we're only really interested in three things: educating our children, reading books, and food." They know and adore fish, vegetables, and desserts in particular, and have a curiosity about food that has embraced influences from around the world, including English, Armenian, Jewish, Tibetan, Chinese, Burmese, and Portuguese cooking. A food writer and presenter on BBC Radio 4 who has lived in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), Parkes teams with Udit Sarkhel, one of the top five chefs in Britain, to present this culinary tour of Bengal and its capital through ten essays, vivid color photos, and surprisingly practical recipes, from Masala Shrimp and Stir-Fried Chicken and Peppers to Coconut Dumplings and Bengali Rice Pudding.

"The authentic, inviting and unintimidating recipes, excellent commentary and photography reminiscent of movie stills helped me finally get my hands around what hitherto seemed an enigmatic and formal cuisine.... Calcutta Kitchen brings out the hallmarks of Bengali dining—the use of mustard, a thorough preoccupation with freshness, a course-by-course approach to the meal (alone among Indian cuisines) and, most of all, a love of fish."—LATimes
