About the Book

Pratibha Jain tradition revisited; an oral i tradition of an illustrious family, an heirloom preserved from one generation to the next in the face of changing times. Jigyasa Giri and Pratibha Jain take the initiative to record this legacy for posterity.

"After indulging in another soul-satisfying meal at Pedatha's home, we re-crowned her the world's best cook. She smiled indulgently and simply said-'Anyone can cook that, it is so easy to make.' On an impulse, we switched on our laptop, and keyed in the recipe."

The unfolding of this culinary legacy centres around eighty-five-year-old Subhadra Krishna Rau Parigi. Fondly called Pedatha, she was the oldest offspring of former President of India, Bharat Ratna Dr. V.V. Giri, and Smt. Saraswathi Bai Giri.

This Book is more than a record of some of these traditional, time-tested recipes. Step-by-step guidelines in tempering and cooking, special tips running throughout the book, and a transliteration scheme for the pronunciation of Telugu terms add a distinctive touch. Rendered in stunning aesthetics, the book also gives a peek into the simple presentation of traditional Andhra vegetarian food, as well as the affection and joy which was shared in bridging the gap between the spoken and the written word.
