Pros: It's always interesting to read about life in a different culture.
Cons: The book was pleasant, but not brilliant.
This is a memoir of growing up in India with recipes. I read it several years ago, and remember enjoying it, but at this remove the only part that stuck in my mind is her story of being in college in the united states and visiting a friends house for thanksgiving. She offered to help out and was given the job of basting the turkey, which grossed her out as a lifelong vegetarian.
