Finally, it was time to unveil the book :-)
Having read about the event, don't you also want to read my review? If yes, continue reading below:
The book is an exemplary one. I have read and reviewed so many books and restaurants but not a cook book. But having said that, when I browsed this book, I could not resist my temptation to review this.
I follow Master Chef and other Cookery programs in local channels. I have also got cook books from Chef Sanjeev Kapur and Master Chef Vikas Khanna. I have also got books of Chef Dhamu and Chef Venkatesh Bhat (popular chefs in Tamilnadu).
