The first ever cookbook from the much-loved Indian restaurant
Open the pages of the Dishoom cookbook and be transported straight to Bombay, to the warm, welcoming Irani cafés that once populated the city, but have now almost disappeared.
Inspired by these cafés, Dishoom presents 100 of their favourite recipes to carry you from dawn til dusk. Every dish reveals a different corner of Bombay - the restaurants of artsy Kala Ghoda, the crowded streets of Mohammed Ali Road, the beach at Chowpatty - and each one is hearty and delicious. There are recipes for Dishoom's famous Bacon Naan Rolls and Black Daal, as well as for Okra Fries, Pau Bhaji, Chicken Tikka, Lamb Biryani and Memsahib's Mess.
Illustrated with beautiful food and location photography, this is a cookbook that is steeped in nostalgia and romance: a celebration of an eccentric, 'maximum' city, its stories, and its dishes.
