These spices helped the day-to-day cooking in the dorm kitchen of his college to remind him of home. Experimenting with what he could find in a mainstream grocery store, Iyer learned to create the complexity of the Indian flavors he craved. And he grew a respected career in teaching others how to cook this way. Workman Publishing, New York, has published Chef Iyer's Indian Cooking Unfolded, A Master Class in Indian Cooking with 100 Easy Recipes Using 10 Ingredients or Less.

Thompson http://wkms.org/post/good-read-rum-diary-hunter-s-thompson <p>Today being Hunter S. Thompson&#39;s 75th birthday, I suppose there&#39;s no better time to finally write up my good read about <em>The Rum Diary</em>. I picked this up as a winter read to warm the bones, but it&#39;s so refreshing you may as well pick it up to cool down this summer. How do I explain that a book with little to no plot or conflict is actually extremely compelling?</p><p> Wed, 18 Jul 2012 21:47:26 +0000 Matt Markgraf 19427 at http://wkms.org Good Read: The Rum Diary by Hunter S.
