Paachakam Heritage Cuisine of Kerala
Step into God’s own country with Paachakam, a beautifully illustrated cookbook that offers authentic insights
into Kerala’s most popular recipes by drawing attention to the communities that cherish them – Syrian Christians,
Namboodris, Cochin Jews, Nairs, and Moplas, to name but a few. In exploring their diverse foods and customs,
interviewing community elders, and researching preferred spices and flavours, Sabita Radhakrishna uncovers
special commonalities between them that serve to define Kerala cuisine as a whole. With easy-to-follow recipes,
Paachakam invites you to enjoy the many tastes of Kerala from the comfort of your own kitchen.
