The Google alert came in this  morning. The very talented blogger FoodBlogga had posted a review of Modern Spice. i could feel the butterflies in my stomach. I could feel the sweat running down my face.. what did she think.. I wondered. It is like that with every review that comes out, the anxiety, the anticipation never quite goes away. So what did she have to say?

Here is the one line that did it for me — ” By the book’s end, Bhide feels like a friend”

One of her favorite dishes from the book is a favorite with our family as well. I hope you will try my tomato and coconut fish curry.
