Reviews about this book

  • Fine Cooking

    ...the book celebrates masala (which Saran translates from Hindi as “spice”) in a figurative sense more than in a literal one: Saran’s recipes are rich with character and the spice of life.

    ...this is an immensely appealing introduction to this magician chef who is able to transform even the most pedestrian fare into a mesmerizing everyday feast.

    It would be easy to lump Masala Farm in with all of the other the farm-to-table cookbooks but it is Saran's roots in Indian cuisine that set this one apart.

Publishers Text

"Masala Farm" is a memoir about a city boy who absconds to a country roost. Indian author Suvir Saran's move from NYC to a farm in upstate New York, where he raises livestock and grows much of his own food. The recipes, organised by season, include classic rustic American recipes made from the fruit of his land and livestock, as well as dishes that speak to Saran's Indian heritage. Memoir, essays, tips, and gorgeous photography frame the recipes.
