Whether you know it or not, you're probably already familiar with Anjali Pathak's connection to the food world. Her parents started Patak's Original, the line of bottled sauces, relishes, chutneys, and more that you can find in the international aisle of your local grocery store.
But Anjali's contribution to spreading Indian culture and cuisine takes a different form.
Her new cookbook, The Indian Family Kitchen,is filled with delicious recipes, of course, as well as anecdotes about what each recipe means to Pathak and her family. Pathak recounts how it was her grandmother who really inspired her love of traditional cooking, and that they spent most of their time together in the kitchen.
There are practical tips on ingredients and substitutions, too, making this a very useful tome to keep on your kitchen shelf.
