Summary of the Book
Bordered by land on three sides and the Arabian Sea in the west, the Indian state of Kerala is divided into three geographical regions - the highlands, the midlands, and the lowlands. The cuisine of this fertile land, so rich in nature's bounty, is linked to the rich influences from both land and sea, which created the unique synthesis of its food and cultural traditions. The wonderful array of spices which grow here, the vast varieties of fish, the vegetables, poultry and meats which abound, have all influenced the food preferences of the Keralite and include both vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare.
             Before these delectable dishes are forgotten and become extinct, Minnie Mattew has collected some of these traditional recipes from her mother, Saramma, an outstanding cook, in an effort to capture the authentic food of Kerala, as well as some of Saramma's magical culinary secrets, for future generations. This book had been created for the benefit of those who have not had the opportunity to live in traditional Kerala households but who are keen to savour the flavours of traditional cooking. This ethnic cookbook demystifies traditional cooking for the modern cook. The recipes are easy to prepare and are easily adapted to the contemporary kitchen. The array of fascinating recipes include fish, vegetables, rice, meat, savoury and sweets, as well as dishesh for breakfast/high tea dishesh,desserts, chutneysm chutney powders, pickles and presserves. In each section, the Author provides nutritional facts and the recipes include Saramma's invaluable tips for enhancing the taste and flavour of the dishes. Suggestions for dishes to be cooked on various occasions are also provided.
            In a modern world, there still remains considerable intrest in traditional recipes. Foreigners in particular express great interest in understanding the traditional cooking of India. However, it is difficult to find cookery books on traditional cookery and traditional dishes are rarely seen on restaurant menus. They can only be cherished when cooked at home - with love.
