Mountain Berries & Desert Spice by Sumayya Usmani (published by Frances Lincoln - Quarto Group)
We all have our favourite savoury recipes from our local Indian/Pakistani restaurants but we hardly ever order dessert. Sumayya's recipes are all about the sweet traditions of her beloved homeland. She recounts to waking to mouthwatering spices and unusual puddings such as 'Shakarkandi di kheer' or Sweet potato pudding with rice flour and spices.
Saffron Soul by Mira Manek (published by Jacqui Small - Quarto Group)
Mira Manek has been inspired by recipes her mother and grandmother cooked for her as she was growing up. The photos are captivating and this one with the older woman patting out her bread really brings that sense of heritage to life. You can sense the love, skill this woman is putting into her food.
The Excursionist - A Novel by J.D.Sumner (published by Clays Ltd, St Ives plc)
I must admit that I found it hard to get into and being lured into the Caribbean Sea I have put this book aside to read later.
I was sent these books to review and was not paid to write a positive review. All opinions and photos are my own and may not be reproduced in any form without my written permission.
