My Two Souths : Blending the Flavors of India into a Southern Kitchen (Hardcover) (Asha Gomez)
about this item
My Two Souths takes readers on a culinary journey with Chef Asha Gomez, from her small village in southern India to her celebrated restaurants in Atlanta, and into her kitchen to share singular recipes that will enliven the tables of home cooks everywhere.
In this cookbook debut, Asha conjures up dishes rooted in her love of Deep-South cooking, as well as the Southern Indian flavors of her childhood home of Kerala. These ?Two Souths” that are close to her heart are over 9,000 miles apart, seemingly in two different universes. But surprisingly, they share so many things, from the tangible? climate, sun, foodstuff such as rice and okra, to the intangible? a spirit of hospitality and sharing, and an abiding appreciation of the soulful dimension of food as both celebration and comfort. These themes are perfectly portrayed as Asha blends her journey into 125 luscious and innovative recipes such as Southern Style Pork Vindaloo, Fried Chicken with Cardamom Rice Waffles, and Chili Pepper Peach Pie.
