Sharing food with friends and family is an international gesture of hospitality. Every culture’s history and traditions are reflected in its cuisine and when we share food with friends from other ethnic backgrounds, we share a way of life that has evolved over many generations. As the world grows smaller, through travel, global media networks, immigration, trade exchanges, etc., we come into constant contact with people from other cultures. Exchanging food and hospitality is a rewarding and exciting way to experience those traditions firsthand.
A Spicy Touch Volume II builds on the success and great popularity of the first volume of A Spicy Touch. In addition to the delicious dishes from Northern India that evolved through African, Arabic and North American influences, A Spicy Touch Volume II features the best of contemporary recipes from Africa, the Middle East and the Orient. It is an international, cultural, treasury of rich and subtle flavours.
The secret to the great success of A Spicy Touch Volume I is the simplicity of the recipes and the instructions. Again, in A Spicy Touch Volume II, the author, Noorbanu Nimji, perfects each recipe thorough repeated testing. In very simple language, she leads the cook through the process of preparing mouth-watering dishes. Conscious of the increasing importance of healthy eating, she also develops healthier recipes that retain their traditional special flavours.
A Spicy Touch Volume II will help you expand your culinary horizons and enjoy the marvelous cuisines and traditions of India, Africa, the Middle East and the Orient.
