Soulfood: 5-step recipes & musings for busy lives
by Karishma Bhatia (Author)
Karishma Bhatia has a Masters from LSE, London and is a literature graduate from LSR, Delhi. She has editorial experience with McKinsey & Co., Dorling Kindersley, and the United Nations. Currently, she writes opinions for a diplomatic news journal. A traveler, painter, and storyteller at heart, food is her greatest creative pursuit after parenthood.
Her story is of every home cook who’s tried to make a new exotic recipe but abandoned it midway because of the complicated ingredients, processes and equipment. She abandoned the recipe but never gave up cooking. Soulfood is a personal memoir of her key moments – meeting the love of her life, the hilarity of raising two boys, family stories, and moments of reflection – all intertwined by the common thread of food.
She combines her love for travel, food and art to create Soulfood.
Soulfood: “Stew is an integral part of Scandinavian cuisine. This versatile comfort food can be adapted to suit your palate and environment. Add beer or wine as the liquid component of this stew or add allspice to create a warm flavor, especially for winter nights… This recipe is my mum’s adaptation of the stew and I hope it will grace dinner tables across the world with its simplicity and comfort. My mum is the most house-proud person I know. She still teaches me how the home needs to be a safe haven. A place to truly rest and prepare for life as it happens. Little does she realize that she is home. This one is for good and bad days, for lonely and overwhelming days. It presses the restart button on life, as all soulful things do. This recipe goes out to the amazing women – my mums, my sisters, and friends – who make their homes piece by piece with all their hearts…”
All recipes in this book are designed especially for the busy, well-traveled, Internet-savvy individual who wants to bring fuss-free international cuisine home. The book reveals the secrets of flavors and ingredients that are an outcome of endless kitchen debacles and honest experiments with food. Ranging from the Moroccan tagine to a simple Spanish flan, these recipes are unique as they have been tasted in 45 countries during the author’s travels and are simplified and made foolproof so they can be replicated in any kitchen in 5 easy steps.
The book has been divided into 3 sections – salads, mains, and desserts – and is beautifully illustrated with watercolor impressions of the recipes and ingredients and makes a great coffee table addition to any home. The cover is drawn and designed by the versatile Spanish illustrator Alicia Aradilla.
