“In the Kitchen is an anthology which showcases the best of food-inspired writing, with each beguiling story interpreting the theme in a different way. Food, in the hands of these writers, becomes a route into our memories, into magic, rebellion, grief and joy.” CG Menon
“This anthology is like a box of treats, one to dip into and savour the delights it offers, one day at a time, or dive into it completely to satiate your hunger!” Susmita Bhattacharya
A young woman attempts to cook her mum’s enchiladas. A boy finds arepas, and the woman who makes them for breakfast, irresistible. Astay-at-home mum realises that her sparklingly clean kitchen isn’t so perfect after all.
This collection is a surprising platter of delightful and peculiar short stories by new and established writers that allow you to lose yourself in their magic.
