Praise:

“Another cookbook that shows a great use of spices is Nik Sharma’s Season: Big Flavors, Beautiful Food, a gorgeous collection of recipes with unexpected flavour combinations. So if you’re looking to bring some new tastes and textures to the table, this one is for you. It’s deeply inspiring and the mouth-watering flavours are guaranteed to switch up your cooking.” Evening Standard

“Nik Sharma’s Season has all the makings of a book that’s about to break out: recipes that are high on flavor, but low on laborious techniques; gorgeous photography that Sharma shot himself on the days he wasn’t writing columns for the San Francisco Chronicle; and the compelling narrative of “a gay immigrant, told through food” that ties everything together.” New York Magazine

“The debut book from author Nik Sharma lives up to the ‘beautiful food’ billing. He’s an India-born, California-based food blogger, acclaimed photographer and able wordsmith. His recipes cross continents for inspiration and combine spices and ingredients in exciting ways. It’s a great read too.” delicious.

“The dishes in Nik Sharma’s debut cookbook, “Season”, trace his journey from Mumbai to his current home in California — chaat masala-grilled pork chops, curry leaf popcorn chicken, ghee-and-elderflower cake — with writing so clear that even the most timid home cooks can master his recipes.” The New York Times
