Award winning cookbook author and cooking star, Raghavan Iyer has released a cookbook that will make everyone to fall in love with curries that are served throughout the world. On the Curry Trail: Chasing the Flavor That Seduced the World has unique and fabulous curries from Cambodia, China, Thailand, Tibet, Japan, Britain, Africa, and the Middle East, as well as Europe , Oceania, Jamaica and Mexico.

These recipes aren’t just for curries; rather they include breads, steamed curry buns, curry fried rice, and other tempting curry specialties. There also recipes for curry powders from different regions of the world. The recipes are written in the traditional manner and are easy-to-follow. Some of the recipes have a long list of ingredients, but sometimes that is necessary to get just the right flavors and textures in certain dishes. Both beginning cooks as well as advanced cooks will find that their dishes turn out picture perfect (even though there aren’t pictures here to compare the dishes with).

Although there are cute and colorful illustrations, this cookbook doesn’t include color photographs of the curry dishes. This is unfortunate, and is the one definite drawback to this cookbook. With modern technology, it is surprising that the publisher didn’t insist on real photos.

This is definitely a book for curry lovers. The variety of recipes is expansive, and there are enough appealing recipes to keep curry lovers busy cooking for months. The prose is excellent and interesting, as well as educational.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
