Every once in a while, I come across a cook book that makes me want to take it home and scour through its pages. And to me always the first impression is important. It decides if I'm going to scan through the pages. Well, this book surely took me into the recipes with beautiful macro shot pictures. In one single picture, you would embrace the dish!
I received this beautiful cookbook "Southern Flavors" by Chandra Padmanabhan from Blogadda, as part of their Book review program. This is my first book review. I have heard about her recipes through various people, but never owned any cookbook of hers (or any other) for the matter of fact.
Meet Chandra Padmanabhan, with her the best of her cookbooks for her myriad fans, Southern Flavours. She is the author of Dakshin, Southern Spice, and Simply South. They are her tried and trusted book which are sold all over the world with no fuss. I am very happy to possess the best of her recipes through this book.
Southern Flavors is for a beginner, and not alone for beginner but to all those who have no idea to use certain healthy herbs and grains. We get an insight into more varieties of our regular ingredients. I would also say, anyone from a varied cuisine who wish to try the Southern cuisine of India, this would be a great initiative. This is a treasure of South Indian recipes and some of which are completely out of our minds and never seen in the modern kitchen.
