Undercover Curry - Anyone heard of it?
« on: July 05, 2010, 01:31 AM »
Hi,

Came across a book called: "Undercover Curry: An Insider's Expose of British Indian Restaurant Cookery"

It was only published in march 2010. Had a look at the website for the book to get more information. Appears as though the author has gone and worked in some BIR and taken as many notes as possible and written the book. Anyone heard of this book or tried the recipes within it?

Which website, please?

This one? http://www.undercovercurry.com/id2.html

Here's a link to the book on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Undercover-Curry-Insiders-British-Restaurant/dp/0956525709

Another bit of a breakthrough or the latest publication where results don't quite match the claims?

Well for ?8 its got to be worth a try....

Even if there is only a nugget or two of gold it will be worth it.

Ordering now!

Cheers

It looks like a good find. I'm tempted to order too. No doubt we will already know 95% of it but as Solar said, there might be an extra nugget or two in there.

I've just ordered a copy and emailed the author to see if he wants to join the forum. If he is as dedicated to curry cooking as his website states hopefully he will become an active member here. It would be great to hear his thoughts on some of our recipes and techniques.

Maybe the OP could tell you more? ;)

I think Ill also adding this to my collection.

Solarspice, you say 8 quid, but to me it reads 13 quid? or have I missed something?

You must have missed my link to Amazon (above) where I ordered it for under 8 pounds this morning. Mind you, that may not include his DVD, whereas the 13 quid version probably does.
