“I am thrilled, euphoric in fact. It’s amazing,” Manfield shared, “I have been travelling to India since 1996. I wanted to showcase the amazing diversity of regional Indian food and its nuances to the world," according to Hindustan Times.

The author collected the recipes from local residents she met while she was traveling India. She wrote in her book, "The recipes I've collected along the way reflect the stories of countless mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sons of daughters, brothers, sisters and aunts, as told to me during my travels.'
