About this deal

Her debut restaurant, Jikoni, was ranked 56th in the UK by the National Restaurant Awards within 7 months of opening and achieved a coveted place in the Michelin Guide in the same year. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. This is a cookbook of great bounty, promising fortifying curries and stews, the warm embrace of aromatic fried bhajis and rich, satisfying desserts. For Ravinder, food should be made and shared with abundance in mind, and this sense of pleasure is conveyed on every page. Raw, modern and sensual, Comfort and Joy applies Ravinder's creative ingenuity to approachable veg-centric recipes for home cooks.

Im pretty good at gauging a recipe just from reading it so Im confidently judging this to be a good book based on having read through it. I was certainly hooked immediately by both the beauty of the writing in the introductory chapter, the opening words of each chapter and the first dish I tried.Having settled down with a cup of tea to read the introductory chapter in the same way I would read a novel, I set out the business of deciding what to cook first. From the first page to the last, every dish looks mouth-wateringly delicious and I have tasted a few! You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. From dips to dhals and pastas to puddings, the pages are filled with familial narrative; of grandmothers, mothers, sisters and aunts, of shared recipes and communal cooking. Born in Kenya, to Indian parents, Ravinder Bhogal's food is inspired by her mixed heritage and the UK's diverse immigrant culture.

I must first admit I havent made anything from it yet, but the recipes look interesting, enticing and tasty.I already have Ravinder’a other cook books so was quick to purchase this one knowing how much I love the others. There is so much I want to make and eat within its pages-from the okra fries with kale-the mango gold coin curry-the strawberry faluda cheesecake-and blissfully a whole chapter on Bread.
