An eccentric and charming cookbook from Dishoom, with over 100 recipes from the much-loved restaurants

About the Author

Dishoom serves a much-loved menu of Bombay comfort food and award-winning drinks in beautiful restaurants that each have a unique story. The first Dishoom opened in Covent Garden in 2010, and there are now five restaurants in London, one in Edinburgh, and one in Manchester. Dishoom breaks down barriers by bringing people together over food and drink: in its restaurants, at its events, and through charity (donating a meal for every meal, with 8 million meals donated so far). Shamil and Kavi Thakrar are co-founders of Dishoom and Naved Nasir is Executive Chef. Shamil and Kavi grew up in London, but have spent many years becoming deeply acquainted with Bombay's flavours and quirks and falling in love with the city. Naved worked in various renowned restaurants in Bombay before moving to London to open Dishoom. This is their first cookbook.

Reviews

A love letter to Bombay told through food and stories, including their legendary black daal -- Yotam Ottolenghi
This book is a total delight. The photography, the recipes and above all, the stories. I've never read a book that has made me look so longingly at my suitcase -- Nigel Slater
There are few cookbooks that immerse you in their subject so thoroughly and so lovingly as Dishoom. Part travel guide, part history, part food manual, this reads like a personal diary with a stonking recipe collection as a bonus. I could eat the Mattar Paneer every week and I probably will, with a Chilli Cheese Toast chaser -- Lulu Grimes
Like its carefully observed, pitch perfect restaurants, Dishoom's cookbook is a feast for all the senses, and brings the restaurant's delicious dishes into the home kitchen. Every page is begging to be pored over and cooked from, each picture leaping from the page with atmosphere and generosity. It's a gorgeous thing -- Rosie Birkett
