About the Book:
Recently, Sunita Kohli co-authored ’The Lucknow Cookbook’ with her mother, Chand Sur.
S. Prasannarajan, the editor of OPEN Magazine, wrote, “This is a cookbook as a cultural testament by one of India’s most accomplished aesthetes. Every recipe in this book tells a story that is more than culinary; it takes us to the private kitchen of our heritage, lest we forget the range and richness of the taste of the subcontinent. Marinated in ancestral memories, The Lucknow Cookbook draws its ingredients from the cultural history of a different time. Never before has tradition been presented more tastefully”.
The Lucknow Cookbook has been launched in almost every premier literary festival in India. Its most recent launch, in end April 2019, was at the Singapore, ‘Festival of Indian Arts and Ideas’ where Sunita Kohli also delivered an illustrated lecture on ‘The Syncretic Culture of India’s Tangible & Intangible Heritage’
