FOOD PATH CUISINE ALONG THE GRAND TRUNK ROAD FROM KABUL TO KOLKATA
FOOD PATH CUISINE ALONG THE GRAND TRUNK ROAD FROM KABUL TO KOLKATA
Description
From the Jacket:

The Grand Trunk Road, the axis of the Indian subcontinent's heavily populated north since the sixteen century, was the brainchild of Sher Shah Suri. Food path: Cuisine along the Grand Trunk Road from Kabul to Kolkata presents a compelling and beautifully illustrated history of the road since its emergence as ancient India's first route for traders and invaders.

Driving along the classic route, full of the footprints of history and culture, one has an unmatched opportunity to discover the culinary riches of India. The seductive treats range from the barbequed temptations of Peshawar and Rawalpindi to the sumptuous secrets of the imperial dastarkhans of Delhi and Agra; from the succulent kebabs of the Awadh region to the sublime vegetarian repast of Varanasi and the tantalizing sweets of Bengal. Indeed, the GT Road is the best introduction to the fulsome flavours of India.

Bon voyage and bon appetit!

About the Author:

PUSHPESH PANT, born in Nainital in 1946 and educated in Nainital and Delhi, is a professor of diplomacy at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He had studied ancient Indian history, international law, and Ayurveda. A regular columnist for national newspapers and magazines, he is also a frequent contributor to radio and television. He writes in both English and Hindi and produces documentaries for television. He is a well- known authority on culinary matters and has published a popular cookbook, Buddhist Peace Recipes (also published by Roli Books). He lives in Delhi with his son, daughter-in-law, grandchild, and his German shepherd, Khampa.

HUMA MOHSIN, born and brought up in Peshawar and educated at Home Economics College in that city, is a cookery expert. Her father belonged to North West Frontier Province while her mother hailed from Punjab - thus the recipes provided by her are an authentic mix of both. Besides resulting up mouth-watering dishes for her family, she is interested in reading and writing short stories. She lives in Peshawar with her husband and five children.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
