My Bangladesh Kitchen: Recipes and Food Memories from a Family Table is the first book on our shelves about the cuisine of this country – a very extensive one, full of beautiful photos, with a comprehensive introduction to the culinary culture of Bangladesh.
Descriptions of dishes and instructions are very detailed, so it will be easy to prepare each dish flawlessly, and learn its history or curiosities at the same time. You will find snacks, vegetables, fish and seafood, meat, rice and bread, desserts, as well as sauces and pickles – a very comprehensive selection of recipes.
Bangladeshi cuisine combines many flavors similar to Indian cuisine, but with interesting influences from the West, Persian and Arabic flavors. Fish balls in coconut curry sauce look scrumptious and the large variety of curries in general is amazing – including recipes with beef or horseradish. Recipes for vegetable dishes, such as okra, eggplant, potatoes or spinach, will give you a new spin on well-known foods.
More than half of the 100 recipes are vegetarian.
