Press: Granta UK; 1st edition (August 1, 2009)
Author Name:Alibhai-Brown, Yasmin
A warm, personal memoir from one of Britain’s most high-profile and vocal immigrants, this is a mouthwatering exploration of the author’s East African Indian roots through the shared experience of cooking.
Through the personal story of Yasmin’s family and the food and recipes they’ve shared together, The Settler’s Cookbook tells the history of the Indian migration to the UK, via East Africa.
Her family was part of the mass exodus from India to East Africa during the height of British expansion, fleeing famine and lured by the prospect of prosperity under the imperial regime. In 1972, they were one of the many families expelled from Uganda by Idi Amin who moved to the UK, where Yasmin has made her home with an Englishman.
The food she cooks now, in one of the world’s most ethnically-diverse cities, combines the traditions and tastes of her family’s hybrid history. Here you’ll discover how Shepherd’s Pie is much enhanced by sprinkling in some chilli, Victoria sponge can be enlivened by saffron and lime, and the addition of ketchup to a curry can be life-changing.
