A Sense For Spice Book Launch
About the Book
A Sense for Spice is Tara Deshpande Tennebaum’s delightful tale of food and family across three generations, a rich tapestry of recipes and stories that takes the reader from the lush Konkan coast to metropolitan Mumbai. The book is at once an introduction to Konkan cuisine, one of India’s richest food cultures, and a fast-paced story of a family with a passion for good food and good times.
A Sense for Spice is the rare cookbook that reads like a story, filled with humour and affection, a perfect companion for a rainy night, a decadent Sunday lunch or a dabble in the kitchen with friend.
