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.
