Indian Cooking In English

This is how the DNA correspondent in Sydney opens her piece on the Sydney Writers' Festival:

"The just concluded Ninth Sydney Writers’ Festival had a marked absence of Indian authors in as many years. However, there was Indian flavour aplenty. Australian writer Christopher Kremmer’s Inhaling the Mahatma, published by Harper Collins, was launched to a packed audience, enjoying the delights of Indian savouries and Bollywood dance at Walsh Bay, overlooking the famous Sydney Harbour."

Glad to see she has her priorities right. Skim over the authors and their writing, and get straight to food and Bollywood.
