Culinary travels through the Great Subcontinent

Bangladesh • India • Nepal • Pakistan • Sri Lanka

'Part travel essay, part recipe journal, and completely compelling' - The Washington Post


Travelers, writers, photographers, cooks-Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid have spent three decades exploring the extraordinary richness and diversity of local and regional cuisines in Asia. Their books have given a generation of Americans a bridge to worlds halfway around the globe.

In Mangoes & Curry Leaves they take us to the Great Indian Subcontinent-to Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka-and catapult us into the kaleidoscopic experience of life in these countries: hundreds of millions of people, myriad languages, mountain kingdoms and searing tropics, and a breathtaking array of cooking styles and foods.

Like Europe, the Subcontinent is a place where vastly different food traditions live side by side: Bangladeshi cooking, for example, is as distinct from South Indian cooking as Moroccan cuisine is from Greek. There are the simple vegetable mallums and spicy sambols of Sri Lanka, the inventive flatbreads and herb chutneys of Rajasthan, Bhutanese mountain stews, Nepali stir-fries, and fish curries of the Kerala coast. In more than two hundred traditional recipes, the authors excite us with every nuance of the authentic tastes of these cuisines; in more than two hundred photographs, they capture the mystery and beauty of these exotic places. In more than forty essays, they make knowable this remarkable region of the world.
