Description

'A brave and beautiful exploration into food, race, memory and the very meaning of life.

I read it greedily - and so will you' Meera Sodha, author of Fresh IndiaThe dinner table, among friends, is where the best conversations take place - talk about the world, religion, politics, culture, love and cooking.

In the same way, Be My Guest is a conversation about all these things, mediated through the sharing of food.

We live in a world where some have too much and others not enough, where migrants and refugees are both welcomed and vilified, and where most of us spend less and less time cooking and eating together.

Priya Basil explores the meaning and limits of hospitality today, and in doing so she invites us to consider that how much we have in common may depend on what we are willing to share.
