new young voice in Indian cooking, Monica Bhide
was probably born with a mixing spoon in her mouth!
Since the age of ten, cooking has been a lifelong
passion for this accomplished caterer and home
chef. Monica specialises in Indian cuisine and
has prepared everything from an intimate dinner
for two to large parties of 40. A graduate of
several formal cooking courses in her native India,
she is also a voracious cookbook reader and counts
hundreds of cookbooks in her collection.
by the lack of straightforward Indian cookbooks,
Monica became inspired several years ago to develop
simplified and healthful versions of her favorite
Indian dishes. The result is the collection of
mouthwatering Indian recipes in her book The Spice
is Right, where Monica, in her down-to-earth and
lively writing style, guides Indian food lovers
on a non-intimidating and flavourful foray into
home-style Indian cooking.
