Review: I have been a vegetarian for many years now and have quite a collection of vegetarian recipe books. This one has become one of my favourites, from which I cook regularly. All the recipes I have tried so far have been absolutely delicious, with so many layers of flavour thanks to all the spices. Even my non-vegetarian spouse is keen for me to cook from this book. There are many sections (see the Look Inside feature), but I would like to mention the desserts. There are quite a few, and most but not all do use a relatively small amount of sugar, but there are many vegan and gluten-free options in there which will be useful for some and do seem to make them that bit healthier. I love the (sugar-free) rice pudding. The Chickpea Dal in Coconut Broth can be a quick store cupboard meal if you used tinned chickpeas and tinned tomatoes (still delicious). If you do not regularly cook Asian or Indian food then you may have to stock up on quite a few spices. This was not a problem for me as I cook Indian and similar on a regular basis. However, on occasion I have omitted the odd saffron thread or lime juice I didn't have to hand and the results were still delicious, so don't necessarily be put off if you are missing something. The pulse dishes in particular can also be a bit time-consuming in that they need to be left to cook for quite a while (you are not necessarily bound to the kitchen). These are the only things you need to be aware of which may be negative points for you. For me, the results make it all worth while.

Review: I thought this book sounded brilliant. The few recipes I've tried are well-written and the results are good. However, the problem is with the production of the book. The index, such as it is, is useless. I like to find recipes to suit ingredients I have but the index simply gives a list of page numbers against generic ingredients with no hint of what the recipe might be. This is next to useless. There is a listing of the names of dishes at the front of the book which is by page number within chapters and not in alphabetical order. If you do find a recipe you wish to use, the cheap binding means that it is not a 'lay-flat' spine so won't stay open at the correct page. It's a shame as it could have been rather good. I fear this will instead sit on a top shelf of my cookery book library and rarely be used.

  • Waterstones Life along the Silk Road

    Price: £25.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: In this long-awaited second edition, Susan Whitfield broadens her exploration of the Silk Road and expands her rich and varied portrait of life along the great pre-modern trade routes of Eurasia. This new edition is comprehensively updated to support further understanding of themes relevant to global and comparative history and remains the only history of the Silk Road to reconstruct the route through the personal experiences of travelers. In the first 1,000 years after Christ, merchants, missionaries, monks, mendicants, and military men traveled the vast network of Central Asian tracks that became known as the Silk Road. Whitfield recounts the lives of twelve individuals who lived at different times during this period, including two characters new to this edition: an African shipmaster and a Persian traveler and writer during the Arab caliphate. With these additional tales, Whitfield extends both geographical and chronological scope, bringing into view the maritime links across the Indian Ocean and depicting the network of north-south routes from the Baltic to the Gulf. Throughout the narrative, Whitfield conveys a strong sense of what life was like for ordinary men and women on the Silk Road, the individuals usually forgotten to history. A work of great scholarship, Life along the Silk Road continues to be both accessible and entertaining.

    Price: £25.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Three textile roads tangle their way through Central Asia. The famous Silk Road united east and west through trade. Older still was the Wool Road, of critical importance when houses made from wool enabled nomads to traverse the inhospitable winter steppes. Then there was the Cotton Road, marked by greed, colonialism and environmental disaster. At this intersection of human history, fortunes were made and lost through shimmering silks, life-giving felts and gossamer cottons. Chris Aslan, who has spent fifteen years living and working in the region, expertly unravels the strands of this tangled history and embroiders them with his own experiences of life in the heart of Asia.

    Description: The Silk Road, which linked imperial Rome and distant China, was once the greatest thoroughfare on earth. Along it travelled precious cargoes of silk, gold and ivory, as well as revolutionary new ideas. Its oasis towns blossomed into thriving centres of Buddhist art and learning. In time it began to decline. The traffic slowed, the merchants left and finally its towns vanished beneath the desert sands to be forgotten for a thousand years. But legends grew up of lost cities filled with treasures and guarded by demons. In the early years of the last century foreign explorers began to investigate these legends, and very soon an international race began for the art treasures of the Silk Road. Huge wall paintings, sculptures and priceless manuscripts were carried away, literally by the ton, and are today scattered through the museums of a dozen countries. Peter Hopkirk tells the story of the intrepid men who, at great personal risk, led these long-range archaeological raids, incurring the undying wrath of the Chinese.
