A delectable experience for gastronomes, Veena Sharma’s Vegetarian Cuisine from the Himalayan Foothills delves into mouth-watering recipes that draw upon local bounties – some forgotten, or less used, grains and greens, spices and fruits – from the Himalayan heights. Exploring a variety of palates and creating a whole range of nutritious and tasty foods, there is an underlay of a desire to retain and re-establish the biodiversity that is vital for your physical and mental health.

Traditional produce are dressed and enhanced to enrich the urban table, catering to your taste buds and nurturing your bodies and minds. Think of nutritional lentil kebabs, vegetables with a twist, zesty chutneys, nourishing soups, and even extraordinary desserts like phony gulab jamuns and luscious puddings. The inclusion of several vegan and glutenfree recipes makes the book of interest to those with special tastes.

With striking photographs and useful snippets of information accompanying each recipe, this book is sure to feed your deepest cravings.
