Product description

Review

"Vij's At Home is a guide from some of America's most famous restaurateurs on their specific and beloved craft, authentic Indian cuisine. With a wide assortment of dishes to satisfy the palette, be it sweet or spicy, savoury or sweet, these recipes will prove easy to prepare and provide for excellent meals." (Midwest Book Review 2011-01-01)

"This book widens the lens on comfort food for Canadians, from signature lamb 'Popsicles,' to plentiful vegetarian dishes, chutneys, sustainable seafood and a delicious butter chicken schnitzel." (Montreal Gazette 2010-12-01)

"[Vij's at Home] promises accessible recipes, with a sampling of the kind of dishes Meeru and Vij enjoy at home. If they are any bit as warm and inviting as the two of them, I am sure it will become a well loved staple." (Food Network 2010-09-22)

"Vijs at Home takes elaborate cooking down a notch. The subtitle -- Relax, Honey -- refers to nurturing through cooking. Recipes are geared to busy families and include Butter Chicken-Schnitzel. Simple Goat Curry, and Titapia in Yogurt and Ginger Curry. The book has an abundance of vegetarian options, such as the restaurant staffs favourite zucchini soup." (Georgia Straight 2011-09-16)

"[Vij's at Home] is a family affair...The recipes come with plenty of explanations for those not so familiar with Indian cooking, as well as a description of the spices used and how to prepare them." (Waterloo Region Record 2010-11-13)

"[Vij's at Home is] a useful quick and easy guide to inspired Indian food: all preps can be done in less than 20 minutes plus cooking times. Thereís a full-range of vegetarian, seafood, poultry, meats and desserts...There is also the occasional memoir material on Indian family life. And some really sharp notes on wine pairings with Indian food." (Wine and Food Books in Review 2010-09-01)

"What sets this book apart is that the wife-and-husband authors put the recipes in the context of balancing the demands of work and family. It is especially appealing to read how the couple's children respond to some of the dishes and what the authors learned about how to satisfy a variety of palatesÖA friendly, accessible book in which many cooks will delight." (Library Journal 2011-03-14)

"While [Meeru Dhalwalla and Vikram Vij] could easily have succeeded on the strength of their culinary expertise, it is the personal touch that has brought renown to their restaurants and cookbooks. That feeling emanates from the restaurants' walls and keeps visitors coming back, and the same feeling will follow them home in Vij's cookbooks." (Edible Vancouver 2011-04-11)

"[Vij's] features easy-to-make-at-home, family-friendly dishes that are designed for busy households." (Chef Magazine 2011-04-11)

"It would be hard to imagine a warmer, more easy going introduction to Indian cuisine in North America than the one put together by the Vancouver restaurateurs Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij in their Vij's At Home: Relax, Honey." (New York Times 2011-06-05)

"Vikram and Meeru are passionate restaurateurs, but they also have a home life infused with the good food they share at their restaurant. They recently shared their love of home cooking in a new book, Vij's at Home: Relax, Honey." (Faith Durand The Kitchn 2011-08-10)
