Reviews by Monica Bhide


Born in India, Monica moved to the United States in 1991. She has an engineering degree from Bangalore University and two masters: one in information systems technology from George Washington University and the other in Industrial Systems management from Lynchburg College. She currently resides in the Washington, DC metro area, with her husband and young sons.

Her highly praised first cookbook, The Spice Is Right: Easy Indian Cooking for Today (Callawind Publications, 2001) is a collection of mouth-watering menus tempered with her up-to-date touches on classic Indian recipes. Monica's next cookbook was The Everything Indian Cookbook: 300 Tantalizing Recipes--From Sizzling Tandoori Chicken. Her third and latest book is Modern Spice (Simon & Schuster, 2009 with a foreword by Mark Bittman).
