Hot Pink Spice Saga by Peta Mathias and Julie Le Clerc

Hot Pink Spice Saga is subtitled "An Indian Culinary Travelogue with Recipes".  And that is quite right – the book is more a hilarious recounting of Peta Mathias's gastronomad tours of India as photographed by Julie Le Clerc (who is also an accomplished cookbook writer).  There are recipes too – but only about every 5-10 pages.  The photography is lovely.

If you would like a bit of a laugh while learning more about India and its cuisine I recommend this book to you.

I scanned one recipe to give you an idea of what the food is like.  Here it is!


  1. I like the decoration of the dish with flowers.

  2. I always love the combination of cookbook and travel and photography. I hadn't heard of this book before, so I'm glad you wrote about it.

  3. I love Indian food. All Indian food. Think I would enjoy this thoroughly.

  4. I love these kind of books too, thanks for sharing.

  5. Sounds like a fun book,
