Swaad (Bharat Ka) - Recipe Book of 14 Traditional Indian Recipes Celebrating GheeRegular price Rs. 1,299.00
SWAAD (Bharat Ka) is really special for many reasons - firstly because it is our very first Recipe Book in print! It is a recipe book that shines the essence of Ghee at its soul! Many many months of hard work with a team of artists - photographers, designers, illustrators, writers, homecooks, professional Chefs who came together to create this exquisite heirloom of regional Ghee dishes from across the country!
There is a story we must tell you now about why SWAAD will always remain close to our hearts!
SWAAD helped us raise 3L in donations towards Give India’s campaign to fight hunger during the COVID second wave that hit our country. To everyone who donated INR 2000/- and above to Give India’s hunger campaign, we gifted them a printed copy of SWAAD. The funds raised was used by Give India to feed the hungry and homeless - each meal was a nutritional platter comprising healthy staples like rice, dal, vegetables, chapati and more and rations kits containing dal, rice, salt, oil, atta, masala, tea, sugar etc. For everyone who donated generously, we wanted to send them a piece of our heart, and this gesture was our love in action…! :)
Today we realize, as we type this out to the world, that for everyone who donated, helped heal those who were suffering, bringing them food when there was no hope; for all those who stepped forward, donated and showed up, SWAAD was always meant to be our ode, something that we did not know ourselves.
These are honest food stories wrapped in blessings and love from our home to yours.
Well, a world of artistic wonder and beauty!
We present honest food art and styling, mesmerizing photography, well researched and structured recipes using Ghee from across the country, family recipes and candid food notes in the words of the cooks who narrated them to us, some soulful writing, stunning hand drawn illustrations matte textured paper that we crave in our digital world of onscreen reading …. !
SWAAD is a slim volume of 14 traditional Indian recipes that celebrate Ghee in true regional style, from across the country! All recipes are vegetarian and hero Ghee - we think Ghee is indispensable to these recipes and will be difficult to replace it with some other oil or plant based fat.
This book also contains guest contributions from Celebrity Chefs, Thomas Zachharias and Rakesh Raghunathan as well as experienced homecooks; to them we remain ever grateful for having contributed their recipes to this book.
