This book tells the history of the Indian migration to the UK, via East Africa. Her family was part of the mass exodus from India to East Africa during the height of British expansion, fleeing famine and lured by the prospect of prosperity under the imperial regime.

The food she cooks now, in one of the worlds most ethnically-diverse cities, combines the traditions and tastes of her familys hybrid history."--Global Books in Print."@en ;
