Love the way spice up your life unfolds timeless recipes through a new lens with a romantic thread throughout. Superb experience to be had and a great read.

Sonal is such a talented and creative cook. Dinner at the Abram's is always a highlight, and now that I've bought the book I can make some of my favourites like chole and pav bhaji at home!
~Laura, North East

This is more about the soup/pasta/leftover sections but they all seem to be really healthy, cheap and quick to make so would be good for students but are still really different than the usual 'student' recipes you find on the internet
 Plus the sections on the front detailing why it's healthy rather than just putting the healthy label on things without any justification
 ~Rhian

I've been cooking with my friend Sonal for about 25 years now. It started when Sonal brought delicious home made samosas to work. We all wanted to know how she made them, so she set up her Indian cookery course at the local school. We had great fun cooking, laughing and eating together. I have very happy memories of those days and I still cook some of those recipes, but now have lots of new ones to try thanks to Sonal's new book.

Sonal lives in Cambridge where she started a number of vegetarian cookery classes. A lot of the first batch of students some 20 years ago were her colleagues who worked in a lab together with her in Cambridge university. One of her students even became her husband several years later!

She truly loves teaching cookery, and has been invited to a few secondary schools on ‘world food days’ for cooking demonstrations. The curiosity and enthusiasm of these students has kept her inspired and helped fulfil her promise of producing this book.

She has also run various Saturday workshops and cooking demos for friends in the village.

The book includes a blend of many different cuisines, including pasta, buckwheat and bulgur wheat recipes, that use Indian spices. She hopes people of all ages will be able to enjoy these
recipes, as her intention is to increase knowledge of healthy but highly enjoyable foods.
