About this deal

We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. This cookbook by Ravinder Bhogal is a fresh take on vegetarian and vegan cooking; not geared towards health or denial but indulging all the senses with a decadent global larder. Having settled down with a cup of tea to read the introductory chapter in the same way I would read a novel, I set out the business of deciding what to cook first. Im pretty good at gauging a recipe just from reading it so Im confidently judging this to be a good book based on having read through it.

And the recipe I’m delightedly sharing with you today is her Pea, Preserved Lemon and Mint Dip with Radish Salsa, which ticks all the boxes for me! From Mango and Golden Coin Curry, Shiro Miso Udon Mushroom and Kale Carbonara to Strawberry Falooda Milk Cake, this is food as pursuit of pleasure.

Raw, modern and sensual, Comfort and Joy applies Ravinder's creative ingenuity to approachable veg-centric recipes for home cooks. I must first admit I havent made anything from it yet, but the recipes look interesting, enticing and tasty. We use Google Analytics to see what pages are most visited, and where in the world visitors are visiting from.

I was certainly hooked immediately by both the beauty of the writing in the introductory chapter, the opening words of each chapter and the first dish I tried. Measurements are in metric or occasionally vague like "a thumb of ginger", or "handfull of cashews". Her debut restaurant, Jikoni, was ranked 56th in the UK by the National Restaurant Awards within 7 months of opening and achieved a coveted place in the Michelin Guide in the same year. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. There is so much I want to make and eat within its pages-from the okra fries with kale-the mango gold coin curry-the strawberry faluda cheesecake-and blissfully a whole chapter on Bread.

This book is vegetarian, in that "not so as you'd notice" way that I love: you just want to make everything. It's strange that vegetarian food has a reputation in the West for being insipid fare, when every Indian knows its flavours can be explosive. From the first page to the last, every dish looks mouth-wateringly delicious and I have tasted a few!Ravinder Bhogal's Comfort And Joy is a revelation-you will never look at "the vegetarian option” in the same way after diving into her inventive, bewitching and mouth watering book.

Ravinder Bhogal's Comfort And Joy is a revelation-you will never look at "the vegetarian option" in the same way after diving into her inventive, bewitching and mouth watering book. Her debut book Cook in Boots (HarperCollins, 2009) won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for the UK's Best First Cookbook and was awarded the first runners-up prize of the World's Best First Cookbook at the Paris Cookbook Fair in February 2010. So it is not an exaggeration to say to say that the Burnt Courgette and Cardamom Dip with Crispy Capers (page 25 of the book) that I made this weekend is THE most delicious dip I have ever tasted.This is a cookbook of great bounty, promising fortifying curries and stews, the warm embrace of aromatic fried bhajis and rich, satisfying desserts. I already have Ravinder’a other cook books so was quick to purchase this one knowing how much I love the others. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. From Mango and Golden Coin Curry, Shiro Miso Udon Mushroom and Kale Carbonara to Strawberry Falooda Milk Cake , this is food as pursuit of pleasure.
