The author has presented the cultural background of Bengali cuisine in an interesting way based on her own experiences. The recipes are not always the best but that can be excused given the personalised way every household cooks the same item. It would be fascinating to research how different families from both sides of undivided Bengal have created recipes that have taken the cuisine to great heights.

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!

The first impression of the book, the cover is enough to catch your eyes. It is a simple one and I love how she carried the essence of her blog on the cover. Kudos to the cover designer who really understood the sentiment of the author and millions of readers like me. The book is divided into ten sections according to the main ingredients. But the main ingredient of the book is BongMom and her love for food and to preserve the recipes of her ma and grandma for the generations to coming. Her writing is simple and anecdote with good humor. And trust me. If you are bong or have strong connection with Bengalis, the humour will crack you up. For example, when she described What do Bongs eat? I knew, the book is gonna treat me well. I can imagine numerous men from my family, neighborhoods with the exact description before they go to opish. (Uhhahah! Not going to spill the beans. Read the book yourself)

The breakfast section, lunch section and dinner section are full of traditional Bengali recipes and her food tales. From her childhood to her initial office days to her life in a new country and after becoming a mother, the book is full of real life stories that would make you want to adore her. Recipes are collected from several places, from her mother’s kitchen, her mother-in-law’s kitchen but all cooked with a little of herself. And it makes the whole journey interesting. Bongmom’s CookBook is not a recipe book. It is the memories of thousands of mothers who get the happiness in cooking and feeding their families and neighborhoods. The book can alone be read for the memories that Bongmom shared. That part solely has the power to take you back into your good ol’ childhood when you didn’t have to worry where you were eating.

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.

The book is a cookbook and a memoir of the author's stay in Bengal . The recipes come out very well. But this book ain't a complete bong cookbook , doesn't even have the recipes of rossogolla and other Bengali classics. Well have to refer to the blog for that. Would have given 3.5 stars if that was allowed on amazon. Nevertheless its worth the money.

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!!!
