SILVER WINNER of the Taste Canada Award 2016 (regional/cultural cookbook category), Noorbanu Nimji has the ability to capture the distinct flavours of her Ismaili culture’s unique Indian meets East African dishes. Her first book earned a reputation as “the bible” of this cuisine and the series has sales of over 250,000 copies. This is the fourth cookbook for Nimji and her first collaboration with Calgary-based food writer Karen Anderson. 

Nimji has been cooking for her family for over 60 years and this book features their most treasured dishes. The recipes are communicated with care so that cooks can continue the legacy of signature dishes being passed down through the generations – whether as a cultural touchstone for the Ismaili or lately - as a discovery of new flavours by those not familiar with its nuances. 

Cooks will feel they’ve been invited into Nimji’s kitchen for a tour of her pantry as they linger over beautifully photographed and explained spices and specialty ingredients. Tips and techniques - that can only come from a master with a lifetime of experience - are highlighted so that readers will feel Nimji is at their side while they prepare the 200 plus recipes in this full colour 320-page hard cover book.
