Bong Mom's Cookbook : Stories From A Bengali Mother's Kitchen (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 305

Bong Mom’s Cookbook: Stories From A Bengali Mother’s Kitchen is a recipe book, and is the spicy story of a Bengali mother who even though living abroad, tries to root her family in Bengali traditions via food.

Summary Of The Book

Indian cookery, be it South Indian, North Indian, Gujarati, or Bengali, is an elaborate affair as it uses lots of pre-processing works, plenty of ingredients, and of course, spices typical to the respective regions. Hence, an entire book could be written on any one of these cuisines. This is exactly what Sandeepa Mukherjee Datta has done in penning the book Bong Mom’s Cookbook: Stories From A Bengali Mother’s Kitchen.

Datta is a foodie, a blogger, and a mother, and she says that her purpose in writing this book was to maintain the slow paced Bengali cookery traditions, even in the modern quick lifestyle. Her idea was to introduce readers to the Bengali style of cooking, and the Bengali tradition and lifestyle as a whole, rather than to impart cookery knowledge.

Bong Mom’s Cookbook: Stories From A Bengali Mother’s Kitchen is anything but a regular recipe book. Instead, it takes readers on a journey from Calcutta where Datta’s grandmother presided in the home kitchens, to New York where Datta herself tries out typical Bong dishes. Rather than just presenting mouthwatering recipes such as posto, kosha mangsho, and paanch-phoron, in a prosaic fashion, the author has written the book with plenty of vivid descriptions, interesting anecdotes, and loads of childhood memories.

In presenting a variety of elaborate Bong recipes, Datta has not forgotten to modify them a little in order to hasten the cooking time and simplify the cooking process, both of which are necessities in today’s fast paced city lives. The book has also been presented in a very organized manner, as it begins with breakfast foods, and winds up with desserts.

Written in a simple yet heart-warming language, Bong Mom’s Cookbook: Stories From A Bengali Mother’s Kitchen, with its plethora of stories from a Bengali mother’s kitchen, promises to cook up a storm in every reader’s house, whether Bengali or otherwise.

About Sandeepa Mukherjee Datta

Sandeepa Mukherjee Datta is a foodie, an avid blogger, and a proud mother of two.

By profession, Datta is an engineer who has worked with AT&T and Siemens. However, when her children were born, she gave up working full time and turned her energy to cooking up yums in her kitchen for her kids. Her passion for food coupled with that of writing, turned her into a prolific food blogger. Datta has 6 years of blogging experience, and is now a book writer. Datta at present resides in New Jersey, USA, along with her family.

Like the way she storytells

The book is an unusual recipe book, it does not only tell the ingredients and the procedure, rather goes slowly by telling a backdrop of the cooking. I guess the writer really enjoys cooking and infuses the instinct to the reader as well. I have gifted this book to my wife, who also loves it. Highly… (View complete review)

I am a bad cook ... I forget ingredients and have no idea of the combination of spices. I bought this book for getting a basic idea for cooking.. I reviewed the blog and then bought it.

An enjoyable read all the way! Recipes are very easy to follow and full with the little stories behind each item. We felt a bonding with the writer and her family, as it rises beyond an ordinary recipe book.

Not the best cookbook I've come across

The way the book has been written is really entertaining. The recipes are mostly easy to make but the ones I've tried didn't really turn out great. More than a cookbook it is better to read this book as a diary written by a Bong mom.

There aren't many recipes in the book and there are more of them on the blog. Also the lack of any pictures make it a rather boring cookbook.

Apart from the above, I really appreciate the fast delivery by the flipkart team.

Bong Mom's Cookbook- A delightful read.

The first thing that strikes you about this book is the fact that it's not just a book of recipes, for there are many in the market and some of them lie on my kitchen shelf gathering dust . The fact that this one occupies a place on my bed side table bears testimony to how different it is from other cookbooks . Each and every recipe has an origin with a story attached with many incidents and memories that take her back to how food was cooked and served, the various smells emanating from the kitchen and so much more that kept the passion of food alive in her heart even when she left her countr

A blogger's book

I have been reading "Bong Mom's cookbook" the blog, for past six years. It is really good to see that the blog has finally taken shape of a book. I believe,the disciplined and dedicated approach of the author made this possible. The book, like her blog, is not merely about recipes. It is much more than that. It is the story of every Bengali mother. Rather mothers all over the world would be able to relate.
The anecdot,s, would remind you of chapters from "Jhumpa Lahiri's" books. They are so Bengali, yet so global. Sandeepa is a brilliant story teller. She can keep you engrossed with her nosta

Not Only for the Bongs!

Sandeepa is the first and last person whose blog I had followed so ardently ever since it started. So I was thrilled to pre-book her book. I must say not only that she didnt disappoint her fans but also she has gifted the reader fraternity with a gem. Though I am not a Bengali by birth, I am a Bengali in every sense by culture (being brought up in Kolkata). This book has included some of the finest Bengali household cuisines which she has divided into West bengal/East Bengal/Others tweaked by her here and there. But the icing on the cake is that its just not "another" recipe book, it has so mu

All the recipes in the blog are not in the book, may be because the blog gets updated frequently. No pictures. I just follow the instructions about the ingredients. Picture would help. It is a helping hand for me in the kitchen. However I have not yet been able to achieve remarkable feat using it. Some of the recipes are good. Its good for beginners, not that useful for expert cooks as it is not a complete book

A must read if you love stories and cooking

Bongmom's cookbook is not like your usual cookbook which you will pick up only when you would want to look up for a particular recipe. Its a book which you can keep reading and not get bored. Its like one of those novels which you can turn to when you long to read one and each time its as exciting as it was the first time you read it. Sandeepa and her short stories from her native land not only share some adventurous insights into hers and her families life but also reminds us of our roots and how at the mention of every street, landscape or food even will take you back on a journey of your ow
