Overview for The Good Goan Cookbook
At the end of the Mahabharata wars, Parusurama was completely distraught at the death and destruction that he had witnessed. He requested God to help him find a place where peace and tranquility dwelt in plenty. Bowing low on the beach, looking at his reflection in the water, he shot his bow. His arrow sailed and landed in the midst of ocean, creating an island that was Eden personified. Legend has it has it that the enclave of peace is God. Through centuries, Goa has been the cauldron in which many cultures have melded to form a formidable array of cuisine that is a treat for taste buds, Nature too has contributed in a large measure to help give the discerning gourmet a festa. And everyday in Goa is a celebration of food. Itâ€™s a way of life. A state of mind. A Joy to savour! The many recipes in Good Goan Cookbook have been culled from the very source my grandmother, mother, aunts and an assorted retinue of family retainers and celebrity chefs have been badgered to help put together a collection of receipes that will bring unlimited happiness to every taste bud.
