Excerpt from Dainty Dishes for Indian Tables It may be objected that as many cooks cannot read, the Urdu copy of this work will avail them nothing, but in all households some member will be found possessing the necessary accomplishment who will be glad to display it for the benefit of his brethren. One other difficulty which lies in the way of reform in our cuisine is the painful fact that, with most cooks, lining their own pockets is to them a matter of far greater importance than the excellence of the dishes they are called on to make. One means of doing this, which finds special favour in their eyes, is to use half the ingredients named in the recipes, and to write down the full amount in the bill. The only way to meet this difficulty is to face the fact that a certain percentage of his master's money will surely find its way into the cook's pocket, and therefore it will f; preface.

Presenting a social history of colonial food practices in India, Malaysia and Singapore, this book discusses the contribution that Asian domestic servants made towards the development of this cuisine between 1858 and 1963. Domestic cookbooks, household management manuals, memoirs, diaries and travelogues are used to investigate the culinary practices in the colonial household, as well as in clubs, hill stations, hotels and restaurants. Challenging accepted ideas about colonial cuisine, the book argues that a distinctive cuisine emerged as a result of negotiation and collaboration between the expatriate British and local people, and included dishes such as curries, mulligatawny, kedgeree, country captain and pish pash. The cuisine evolved over time, with the indigenous servants preparing both local and European foods. The book highlights both the role and representation of domestic servants in the colonies. It is an important contribution for students and scholars of food history and colonial history, as well as Asian Studies.
