Curry: a biography

I'm reading a great book at the moment - Curry by Lizzie Collingham. As the blurb says "this imaginative book tells the history of India and its rulers through their food. It follows the story of curry as it spread from the courts of Delhi to the balti houses of Birmingham, from the tiffin-carriers of Bombay to the army canteens of Japan". It is a fascinating read, meticulously researched, and even features recipes! Find it at a library near you ...
