This book has varieties of recipies. But it is a novel also. For those who love novels and cooking, this book is SIMPLY AMAZING. For those who love coking alone will have to really search the recipies. I like ONLY the recipe part of the book. I have not tried any, but the photos of recipies and pain taken to write few chosen recipies from all places is definetely worth appreciation.
its not a reciepe book in conventional sense. its like reading / hearing grandma, telling us a story behind a everyday snack. i especially liked the book because it talks about Maharastrian food. Poha, Bhakri, Usal. great photos, too. and then she lives in Boston. thus, her reciepies includes ingrediants that are availble easily, everywhere. thank you madam!
This book is such a good read. There are stories about food and times gone by told with love. The recipes are good and easy to make and not restricted to South India. Love the recipes, but the stories more.
It's a story about Droolworthy food, memories, family, love, recipes... Loved this Book.
I got my Tiffin, Book today. Totally worth it. Great quality, Beautiful illustrations - Pictures. I have already read this on kindle, I went ahead and ordered the paperback for quick reference to the recipes. Must buy. I got it for Rs. 339. I want to start cooking the recipes I have been drooling over. This is a book I will treasure. Its about independence Time days, what kind of food the author had till the present time. It offers a peep into that era. I love stories about food, the backdrop and the recipes.
What a beautifully produced book! This one is a must have even if you don't spend time in the kitchen (bonus, if you do!) and if only for the joy of beholding and reading! And at such an economical price to begin with! For once I didn't buy a book at a fantastic discount at Amazon and I was still able to afford it!
loved the memoir as much as the recipes. There are a good number of tiffin recipes for someone who is specifically only looking for that. The paper, the print and the pictures make this book colorful. A good addition to our collection.
This book is not just a cookery or recipe book. But it is a cookery book filled also with lots of her life time memories and from where she learned etc., It is like a Novel and It is amazing. I prefer every indian ecspecially South indian one who loves his / her family and their ancisitors, must have book for his /her kitchen. There is no second thought in this. Lastly I can say is GOOD BOOK.
Bought the book mainly for stories rather than the recipes. Needless to say I'm not disappointed. It transports one to a bygone era which we can only imagine through this wonderful narrative. Recipes you can find everywhere with a few ingredients, spices here and there but the stories are mouth watering
Tiffin by Rukmini Srinivas is a memoir and a recipe book, twin pleasures for me because she writes about food from the South. I love South Indian food. Her writing style is simple, yet not boring, and she is an excellent story teller.
