Cooking Indian Food at Home – Where to Start?

If you read my article, Curry – A Journey, published on the Curry page of this site, you’ll know that my first experiences of the dish were of the generic variety which the British invariably cooked and ate when living abroad a few decades ago. You’ll also know that I then discovered “real” Indian cookery and decided that as I couldn’t afford to eat out that much, I needed to learn how to cook the stuff myself. My first stop then, was a local bookshop, where the choice of books on Indian cookery was somewhat limited. However, I struck lucky and discovered a book called Indian Cookery by Madhur Jaffrey – what a find. Written in simple language but with …

I had always had a secret dream of being a chef.

Unfortunately, the realities of the workplace made it not worth the effort. You see, if you have ever worked in a kitchen, you truly know what it is to be underpaid and overworked. Every day is an ordeal, and although you are trained to make some of the best, most delicious food in the world, you spend most of your time cooking well done steaks for near minimum wage. Instead, I decided to become a good cook for my family and a successful professional for myself. Nonetheless, as the years have gone by I have regretted not having more opportunities to fully explore my culinary interests. That is how I first discovered cooking holidays.

Cooking for One

It is often frustrating to attempt to plan meals that are designed for one. Despite this fact, we are seeing more and more recipe books and Internet websites that are dedicated to the act of cooking for one.

Cooking for Sunday Dinner

From as far back as I can remember there have been special church occasions when dinner on the church grounds was the order for the day. Far too many times I watched as person after person walked in with store purchased fried chicken. Whether the reason for this was lack of time, lack of planning, or lack of ideas I was never quite certain. I was certain however, that this was not isolated to my church alone. It may seem odd but I have traveled all over the country and lived in many different areas of the culture. One thing that seems constant no matter where I live is that someone inevitably brings fried chicken from a local restaurant or …
