I love nothing more than the gift of a new cookbook. It makes me happy to open the cover and peer curiously through the pages looking for new ideas and recipes whilst staring at vibrant images. Visuals are so important for a girl like me; I need to see colour, texture and how things look if I'm ever going to attempt cooking anything from a book.
The Three Sisters Cookbook is a lovely collection of recipes from three sisters, each with different strengths that help fill this evocative book with wonderfully vibrant, simple and delicious looking recipes. Many of the recipes are modern Indian, which is nice... bringing something new and interesting to the table and making the cookery appeal to an even wider audience.
The book itself is colourful and brimming with striking photography, showcasing the simple dishes as well as the more elaborate creations. Desserts aren't abundant in Asian cookery, which is why the 'Desserts and Drinks' section is a nice touch, featuring lots of cooling Indian combinations to serve alongside meals.
I love this kind of book. It's unpretentious and very warming to read the stories of the sisters and how they grew up. Personaly family pictures are also shared with readers, which is a nice touch and overall I would hand-on-heart recommend this as a wonderful gift for anyone this Christmas. You don't have to be a seasoned cook to tackle these recipes, they are simple, well explained and produce great results so head to Amazon and buy yours now... it's half price at just £8.50, so CLICK HERE
