The F-Word by Mita Kapur

Category: Food Narrative
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers India

“CM, I’ll eat salad for dinner, just go easy on the veggies.” “But kebabs are meant to be only minced mutton, Mom!” “Has CM cooked today? If she has, it must be diet food and I’m not eating!” The F-Word is a madcap account of a working woman juggling family, friends, long distance phone calls and food. How do you serve a nutritious yet delicious meal to a large family of individuals of varying ages and with extreme differences in taste? What is the trick to adapting a great tasting but swimming-in-oil restaurant special so it keeps the punch and loses the grease? What does a woman do to keep them all-partner, children, in-laws, pals–healthy and happy without quietly going out of her mind? A culinary romp with unexpectedly tender moments interspersed with seriously good recipes to suit every taste.
