  • Adjudged as BEST VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK IN THE WORLD 2006 by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, this book features traditional Andhra recipes as taught by an illustrious Indian Grandmother. She is Mrs. Subhadra Rau Parigi, fondly known as Pedatha, the eldest offspring of India's former President Bharat Ratna Dr. V.V.Giri. A passionate cook, Pedatha s recipes are much sought after by friends and relatives. Her cooking has remained unchanged in the face of changing times, still retaining the traditional flavours and an old world charm. Intrigued by her passion which has not diminished with age, the authors Jigyasa Giri and Pratibha Jain take the initiative to record this culinary legacy for posterity. They say that after indulging in another soul-satisfying meal at Pedatha s home, we re-crowned her the world s best cook. She smiled indulgently and simply said that anyone can cook these dishes, they are so easy to make. On an impulse, the authors switched on their laptop, and keyed in the recipes. This book is more than a record of some of these traditional, time-tested recipes. Rendered in stunning aesthetics, the book also gives a peek into the simple presentation of traditional Andhra vegetarian food, as well as the affection and joy which was shared in bridging the gap between the spoken and the written word. The authors conclude that their heartfelt desire was to show Pedatha how a seemingly ordinary skill of hers is in truth a rare genius...and thus came about this book at the greatest speed possible. SALIENT FEATURES OF THIS BOOK: 1) 96 pages, hardbound with dust jacket, 170 GSM premium art paper, four-colour 2) A picture with every recipe 3) A photo glossary 4) Section pages designed with photographs of Pedatha and a write-up 5) A simple transliteration scheme for pronunciation of Telugu terms 6) Interesting variations in many recipes 7)Special tips by Pedatha throughout the book
