This is a little gem of a book on the history and geography of Indian food. It is simple and engaging, with fascinating nuggets of information, distilled from the author's research and more detailed works such as his Indian food: a historical companion. As he says in the opening sentence, "Behind any of the foods that we eat every day, lies history and geography, botany and genetics, processing technology and high romance."
