Dishoom: From Bombay with Love [9781408890677]

(1 review) Write a Review

The long-awaited cookbook from Dishoom.

Through the course of these pages, you will go on a gentle walking tour of South Bombay, peppered with much eating and drinking.

Gradually, you'll discover the simple joy of early chai and omelette at Kyani and Co., of dawdling in Horniman Circle on a lazy morning, of eating your fill on Mohammed Ali Road, of strolling on the sands at Chowpatty at sunset or taking the air at Nariman Point at night.

Once you find your places of refuge, Bombay will become human and then - without you noticing exactly when - it will complete the seduction and become delightful.
AUTHOR: Shamil and Kavi Thakrar are co-founders of Dishoom and Naved Nasir is the Executive Chef. This is their first cookbook. Dishoom pays loving homage to the Irani cafes that were once part of the fabric of life in Bombay. Opened early last century by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran, there were almost 400 of these cafes at their peak in the 1960s. Today, fewer than 30 remain. These cafes broke down barriers by bringing people together over food and drink. They were the first places in Bombay where people of any culture, class or religion could take cool refuge from the street with a cup of chai, a simple snack or a hearty meal. People from all walks of life shared tables, rubbed shoulders and broke bread together. Like the old Irani cafes, Dishoom breaks down barriers: in its restaurants, at its events, and through charity (donating a meal for every meal - 5.6 million meals so far). Dishoom serves a lovingly curated menu of Bombay comfort food and award-winning drinks in beautiful restaurants with unique stories. Everything Dishoom does shares its love for Bombay's culture, heritage and people, and everyone is welcomed with warmth. The first Dishoom opened in Covent Garden in 2010, and Dishoom now has five cafes in London, one in Edinburgh, and one in Manchester.

    More of a travel book than a recipe book

    Posted by Kate on 5th Nov 2019

    An interesting travel book with lots of detail and pictures but I wanted more of a cook book. The recipes that are included are good but this is more of a sit down and read book than a use in the kitchen recipe book.
