Description

 

The theme of this book is “aappayon”, or entertaining the Bangladeshi way. “Aappayon” is essential to the spread of food which will greet the guests. Getting together to share good food is at the centre of “aappayon”—and everything that you need to entertain the Bangladeshi way is here in this book. It will help you present food on the table and make it pleasurable for both—the guests to enjoy, and the hostess/host to prepare. The book is designed to steer you through the procedure of planning a party, selecting the menu and finally preparing the food. It gives rare insight into the life of the Bangladeshi people and explains various rituals and traditions. Each menu has an opening section detailing the essence of the menu—and most of the recipes themselves provide detailed information about its main ingredient or some other item of special interest.
 
In addition, the book contains a comprehensive introduction to Bangladeshi cuisine and an exhaustive glossary. The spices and ingredients, uncommon outside Bangladesh, are extensively explained and substitutes have been suggested.
 
Shawkat Osman once loved to go out on hunts, but only to accompany his friends. He soon volunteered to cook for the group. It was thus that cooking became one of his passionate hobbies. Sometime later Sara Zaker arranged a cookery show on Tara TV of Kolkata. He fondly named his show Khunti Korai (the two essential utensils needed by a Bengali cook); and has since started writing few cookbooks for his fans. This is his first book.
