This is one of my favorite cookbooks, and a go-to book for dinner parties and potlucks. I have over 100 cookbooks, so if I choose to make a dish again, it's a strong endorsement.

Full of wonderful, flavorful and easy dishes that I have made many times and always get compliments from dinner party guests.

If you like trying new combinations and a variety of spices, you'll enjoy this one. Some of my favorites are:

Escabeche of Chicken in Allspice sauce
Mint Pilaf
Orange-Cinnamon Pilaf
Chicken Braised in...more
I don't know why this cookbook isn't more popular, especially consider how popular her Indian cookbooks are. This cookbook is more accessible to most cooks. Great spice information and the recipes are simple and tasty. Contains my favorite brussels sprouts and cauliflower recipes.
