Now the connections we made through oral storytelling have disappeared because of rise of modernday nuclear families where children see their parents once in a couple of months.The truth, however, remains that no matter how many countries we travel to and live in, or how many expensive meals we eat at Michelinstar restaurants, the magic of our mothers' cooking never fades away. InRecipes for Life, Sudha Menon attempts to recreate those memories and the magic of the food we grew up with and cherish. The book is replete with stories, anecdotes and recipes from the homes of some of India's much admired and accomplished people.Book Link:
