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...

The book made for interesting, light read. It is quite honest - the author does not claim to be an expert in Bengali cooking. Rather, she writes about the trials and tribulations of trying to keep her Bengali roots intact amidst a busy working life in a different country, at the same time managing two kids too. The book taught me a lot I hadn't known earlier about Bengali cuisine. It also inspired me to cook some of the dishes that have been mentioned, and made me crave to visit Calcutta. That said, the editing could have been a bit tighter, I felt. The memoir part of it is light-hearted, and a bit more depth would have been great.

I love this book. I bought one for myself and one for my mother-in-law. All recipes from this book turn great. It's suitable even for people who have no idea about cooking bengali food (as I was). The only thing that I am missing is a table of contents. It would be great if I didn't have to search all recipes manually.

Read many a cook book. This is somewhat different. Must recommend it to people who appreciate a story behind the dish.
Kind of like the journey of cooking, experimenting and interacting with flavours is the essence. Also, love the authors blog!!!

For lovers of Bong food, this is a great way to learn. The recipes have been explained very well and are quite easy too. And whatever I've tried has turned out delicious
