5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book...with a little disadvantage! 7 October 2013
By Rimzim
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been visiting Sandeepa's blog for about 6 years now and her blog gives me that feeling when I'm in the kitchen with my mom and granny, back home. The way she describes each recipe with a brief story makes me nostalgic and reminds me of my Bong connection. I love the way she writes this book. For Bongs, it's not much of a problem as the contents reveal what recipes are included in a particular section..but for non-Bongs, this might be a big prob. Even I feel I should write the recipe list at the back with page numbers for quick reference. At first touch, the cover paper quality seems a bit too thin and the pages are quite rough. But, it doesn't matter. I love the smell of the pages and the book (full of Bong dishes) itself makes me drool! This will definitely take an honorable position in my list of cookbooks. Even if I don't try out everything, I'll know it for always reminding me of home. Thank you Sandeepa for the wonderful work!

I have been following Sandeepa's blog from a long time and love her writing style....Was excited to read the book as well. I love the memoir type book she has written and we all can so imagine her nostalgia of the past. I loved reading this book and the the only down for me was no pictures...

5.0 out of 5 stars A cultural and culinary feast of a book!! 16 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Disclaimer being added after writing the review: I do not personally know the author, and have not been induced or incentivized in any manner to write this review, other than reading it, trying out the recipes, and enjoying the bliss that followed. :)

I was under the impression I had already submitted a review for this book. Then I realized that this book, its author and the author's work on her blog have become such integral parts of our life that I believe I must have reviewed it. First off, it is a great cookbook for people who enjoy Bengali food. Second, it is a literary and cultural feast. Dare I compare it Maya Angelou's Hallelujah! The Welcome Table? Yes, I do!! Thirdly, it should serve as a gateway to her blog, which is one of the most fascinating properties to visit on the web for anyone who loves life and the transmission of life.
