Filled with recipes, poems and illustrations, Tanya reminiscences about her life, one bite at a time, stringing together family vignettes in the book. From childhood snacks, teenage trysts in Calcutta and following her heart all the way to Paris to her reluctance towards cooking, and then coming back full circle to acknowledge it in her life as a precious legacy while discovering her calling as a poet and artist. Loaded with comfort food, this book offers a serendipitous, intensely local perspective of Goan colonial food influences and traditions. And Tanya does it with piquant anecdotes filled with fascinating references to the cultural shifts a new India was brazing itself for in the 90s and never takes her eye off local food culture throughout her whirlwind life.
