Review: Afghan Cuisine: Cooking for Life by Nafisa Sekandari
Review: This is a pleasing collection of Afghan (and some non-Afghan) recipes. While the author admits she is a novice at cooking and at publishing a cookbook, I still feel there were some obvious deficiencies. Several of the recipes seem to skip steps or confuse terms. There are grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors a plenty. The layout is often awkward, splitting lists over two pages, or breaking apart instructions.
I am eager to try many of these dishes, but not sure I will be able to follow these instructions, sadly. I'm glad it's part of my collection of works about Afghanistan, but this isn't the best book on Afghan cuisine out there. Still it was worth the money to buy and the time to read.
