The Raj at Table : A Culinary History of the British in India Paperback

Description

While the British were in India they developed a curious cuisine all of their own.

Anglo-Indian cooking was at its best when it achieved a kind of cultural balance; mulligatawny, kedgeree and Worcestershire sauce are all products of the Raj.

David Burton draws on first-hand accounts to describe a valuable piece of social history: in addition to over 60 authentic recipes.

He builds up a fascinating and often hilarious picture of the British - at best endearingly naive, at worst ignorant and xenophobic - seen through the kitchen door.
