What is it about food that makes one so addicted to it? Chef Saransh Goila’s debut book provides an answer to this question in the most delicious manner possible.

He also features in the Limca book of world records of 2014 for hosting the longest ever road travelogue show – “Roti, Rasta aur India”. Below is a short review of the book. I refrain from calling it an actual novel. It is a journey described along with recipes. There is no story, no script, no characters. Food is the main character. Now let us accept few things right from the beginning. Firstly, Saransh is no professional writer. He is a chef, and a mighty good one. Therefore, do not go expecting heavy language and high – level English, primarily because that is not the focus of this book. The language is kept simple, grammatically correct and never over the top. Secondly, you have to be a foodie to read this book
