Finally back in print--the definitive volume on Indian vegetarian cooking. Created by a noted author and lecturer, Lord Krishna's Cuisine features more than 500 recipes, filled with fresh produce and herbs, delicate spices, hot curries, and homemade dairy products. All recipes are based on readily available ingredients and have been scrupulously adapted for American kitchens. The recipes are enlivened by the author's anecdotes and personal reminiscences of her years in India, including stories of gathering recipes from royal families and temple cooks, which had been jealously guarded for centuries.Hailed by Gourmet as "definitive," and as "a marvelous source for vegetarians" by Bon Appetit, Devi has created the landmark work on the world's most sophisticated vegetarian cuisine. Repackaged and evocatively illustrated, Lord Krishna's Cuisine unlocks the mysteries of the most healthful and delicious recipes of the world.
A noted cookbook author, lecturer, and teacher, Yamuna Devi began her culinary apprenticeship more than thirty years ago with A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, with whom she studied for eleven years. As a food historian, she continues to research regional cuisines through extensive travels in India. She lives in British Columbia.From Publishers Weekly:
This impressive volume introduces light, nutritious food that lends itself to attractive presentation. Piquant pairings include banana-and-pomegranate salad, minted cucumbers and strawberries, and lemon stuffed with almond-chickpea pate. Such elegant dishes might easily grace the most sophisticated table without a whisper of the pedestrian connotations sometimes associated with vegetarian cooking. A prodigious, 800-page labor of love illustrated with lovely, delicate line drawings, the meticulous, encyclopedic cookbook faithfully reflects the philosophy that cooking is "a spiritual experience . . . a means of expressing love and devotion to the Supreme Lord, Krishna." The most esoteric ingredients are defined and demystified. And mail-order sources will help readers locate the requisite bitter melon, tamarind concentrate and white poppy seeds. The author is a cooking instructor in the U.S. and England.
