A GUIDE FOR GENTLEMEN CHEFS

A Guide for Gentlemen Chefs is a humorous attempt to categorise recipes, Indian, Western and Continental, not on the basis of their ingredients or modes of preparation, but according to the various categories of ‘Gentlemen Chefs’. Each category contains a tongue-in-cheek verse, ‘appropriate’ recipes, and a subtly humorous cartoon by none other than one of India’s most renowned cartoonists, the inimitable Mario Miranda.
