I have picked up quite a few cookbooks in the last few years, but this one was different.
There can have varying shades of information about why a certain food plan is adopted. The approach to informing us about it also can vary. Here is where this particular book stood out. One of the authors was brought up with yoga as a lifestyle, and the introduction reaches deep into his understanding of it. He interprets things well, and for someone who was brought with a similar understanding of our daily habits, it felt good to see it reflect in print.
It is disheartening to see what the idea of ‘yoga’ has been reduced to in the modern fast world, so much so that the anglicized names have crept into some practices in cities in India as well, just to ‘keep up with the times’.
Anyway, the author talks a bit before elaborating on actual recipes. The recipes themselves are simple, but a few were familiar (to me). I took away more about the essence of the process of cooking and eating than actual recipes and was happy with that.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley, the review is entirely based on my own reading experience of this book and prior knowledge of some of the concepts discussed here.
