We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, My Bangladesh Kitchen: Recipes and Food Memories from a Family Table by Saira Hamilton.


Saira Hamilton is a chef, cooking teacher and food writer, specializing in Bengali-inspired food. While competing in the MasterChef competition in 2013, she reached the finals and won high praise from the judges for her delicious dishes and deft spicing. Her cookbook My Bangladesh Kitchen is an explosion of dynamic flavors, spices and colors, rich with the love and history of her heritage. 

Saira's background in teaching the art of cooking is evident throughout the book. She covers techniques, ingredients and instructions with the detail of someone who is invested in the task. She is your mother or grandmother pointing out the ins and outs of the perfect pie crust and dedicated to imparting her knowledge to the reader. Brilliant photographs of the dishes, the people and landscape of Bangladesh are shared. The recipes are approachable and ingredients relatively easy to procure. Spice up a meal with Hot, sweet and sour eggplant or spicy fried potatoes or go all in with Duck curry and bamboo shoots. There is something for everyone in this book.

As someone who loves to study the breads and sweets of other cultures, I am thrilled that the author covers both. In the past those areas were neglected in cookbooks that focus on international cuisines. From Naan to Rice flour lace breads to Vanilla spiced rice pudding with mango, Saira reaches deep into her heritage and brings it to life in these glorious pages.
