The Karachi Kitchen
From the Arabian Sea to the peaks of the Himalayas, cuisine in Karachi is as diverse as its inhabitants and draws influences from across South, Central, and West Asia. The local food is bold in flavor, and comes in many forms including curries, soups, stews, wraps, pilafs, pies, and more. Internationally acclaimed Pakistani chef and educator Kausar Ahmed has curated and created unique, mouthwatering recipes in this gorgeous one-of-a-kind cookbook. Readers will discover a whole new world of flavor through the culinary arts of a multi-cultural region that sits at the crossroads of South Asia.
