“Wistful, funny and tremendously satisfying. . . . Jaffrey’s taste memories sparkle with enthusiasm, and her talent for conveying them makes the book relentlessly appetizing.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Do not attempt to read [this] mouth-wateringly evocative memoir on an empty stomach. . . . A delicious tribute to a deeply rooted, multicultural upbringing.”

“A sharp observer with a pleasing eye for sensual detail, Jaffrey weaves a richly textured story in which she effortlessly mingles quotidian drams with historic events.”
People Magazine

"Her story reads like a novel and evokes images worthy of a Merchant-Ivoryproduction. You can practically taste sun warmed mangoes plucked from the tree, the barley-sugar candy that holds a hallowed place in the author’s memory."
The Seattle Times
