Roomies Foodies-Firstly, the cover design is very well designed-catchy title,colourful design, very attractive and striking and secondly,the contents and recipes flow beautifully-they are very creative and sound easy to the layman to follow and cook! I absolutely loved the variety and range of fun recipes that the authors Lakshmi and Meghana had come up with along with fun names too and a detailed appendix. I would highly recommend Roomies Foodies to everyone interested in trying out new recipes and in fact, have urged my twin daughters to buy it for themselves and one copy for my birthday ( Dec.27!) Well-done-much to feel good about and proud of- I feel proud to be related to Lakshmi- both brainy and creative in the kitchen( lucky husband Ashwin!)

Having spend some time studying abroad, have missed having a guide that's a help for students who are trying to balance being in a new environment and having to find recipes that are easy to make (besides being tasty!) - this is where "Roomies / Foodies: Fun'n Easy Cooking" fills the void. Well written with the amateur student cook in mind, Kudoo's to Lux and Meg for having put together this book, which I'd say needs to be part of the survival kit for any desi student trying to make their way to a foreign land!
Have been experimenting with some of the recipes and they are extremely easy to follow… Love the "tips" which couple as time-saving tricks and a practical approach to cooking. Bottom line, a great book to have and a must have if you are going traveling either as a student or moving to a new place and you need to find an easy guide to fun’n easy cooking!
Congratulations to the authors for a cook book with a lot of funfilled stories following each recipe .I found it interesting for the bachelor group besides the students .Each recipe is simple and easy to make.The book cover is very attractive and the pictures are brilliant. I loved every bit of it and waiting to try it in the bachelor kitchen. Best wishes Arun
Loved the anecdotes before the recipes. The writing style is interesting and keeps you engaged. Really simple, easy-to-follow recipes for young people who have no prior knowledge of cooking. A definite requirement if you know someone or are planning to travel abroad and need some assistance in the kitchen.
