The elaborate Sunday morning breakfasts, the seasonal delicacies, the preserves that made available non-seasonal flavours – this is the stuff of childhood memories. Tragically, given the sheer pace of life today, it has become harder and harder to follow in our mothers’ footsteps, to recreate moments of bonding in the kitchen, to maintain family traditions, especially when it comes to food.
Sandeepa Mukherjee Datta – blogger, foodie and mother of two – strives to make this possible in her own life, and yours. This delicious book travels from Sandeepa’s grandmother’s kitchen in north Calcutta to her home in a New York suburb through heart-warming anecdotes and quick-easy recipes. Find out how to cook the classic kosha mangsho, throw in a few mushrooms to improvise on the traditional posto, make your own paanch-phoron.
The new woman’s spin on old traditions, Bong Mom’s Cookbook is a must-have kitchen supplement for Bongs and non-Bongs alike.
‘Authentic and enjoyable, clear and personal, studded with anecdotes that warm the heart and stir up your own memories of your favourite family recipes, Bong Mo’s Cookbook is a delight to read. The only problem ; you’ll have to interrupt your reading many times to try out these mouth-watering recipes!’ – Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, author of Sister of My Heart, One Amazing Thing and Oleander Girl
