Praise For Season: Big Flavors, Beautiful Food (Indian Cookbook, Books about Indian Seasoning, Beautiful Cookbooks)

"I chose Season-for its elegance, it ingenious marrying of compelling, global spices, and, finally, for the semi-calm that pervaded my kitchen as I cooked from it. That hard-to-define-or-describe thing that I love about food has been revealed to me, existing along the lines of strong, persuasive flavors and a feeling of semi-ease that these flavors engender in me. I loved the smell of my kitchen when I cooked from this book, and that made me want to linger at the counter and then, longer, at the table. I happily entered the doorway of Season, and stayed for the story."-Meg Wolitzer, author of The Female Persuasion, The Interestings and The Wife

"This book is full of mouthwatering recipes that home cooks will actually make and dozens of Nik's breathtaking, low-light images that sit at the intersection of food photography and fine art. More than providing 100 thoughtful recipes, however, Nik encourages us to connect the dots between our cultural foods, memories, and cur­rent geographic location so we may also cultivate a way of cooking and eating that represent who we truly are." —Bryant Terry, James Beard award-winning author of Afro-Vegan

Named one of the Best Healthy Cookbooks Fall 2018 by MindBodyGreen

"Nik Sharma's recipes meld the pantry and techniques of India, the American South, and California; they also have the rare quality of always, always working out exactly as promised. He writes about his interest in "the inherent tension between originality and tradition," which is evident in inspired dishes like a riff on caprese salad, dressed in a tart-sweet tamarind vinaigrette and greened up with cilantro leaves instead of basil." — Helen Rosner, The New Yorker

"Every so often a title shows up that refuses to be cast aside, and Season by Nik Sharma, our very first Cookbook Club pick, is one of them. Flipping through Sharma's recipes for dishes like Chaat-Masala Grilled Pork Chops and Apple Masala Chai Cake will make you want to raid your own spice cabinet for the cumin, coriander, and cardamom (or perhaps go out and stock up on fresh spices, because yes, they go bad!).
