    I read this every morning over cereal in bits and bites and although every Liberal Arts class I ever had says "ohmygodcolonizationistheworstrunnnnnn", there is something to be said for the stodgy comfort of British food and routines like tea mixed with spicy unpredictable India. Comfort, but not the Edna Lewis kind.

    I did enjoy reading this book and seeing the many recipes listed and the many things the English got up to at their hill stations and I wonder of all these things what did my ancestors make of all this and did they engage in the same activities or was it different for them as they were for the most part lowly soldiers.

    For some reason this book took me far too long to read, which for me means it wasn't interesting enough. Some recipes worth trying.

    I enjoyed this book of reminiscensces about the old days of the Indian Raj and the apparently very tasty recipes they enjoyed.

    Enjoyable. If I had wanted it for a recipe book, I would be well satisfied. I had hoped for more narrative, but overall I liked it.
