The problem with the cooks I grew up with, like my mother for instance, is that they never wrote any of their craft down. So here I am looking for ways to cook the wonderful food I have been put- ting away for years and all these people can tell me is well, you add a \u201clittle\u201d of this and wait till \u201cthat\u201d happens and then serve. This collection then started through my efforts to write down some means of replicating what I would undoubtedly forget otherwise. From a small collection of Indian recipes, this has grown into a larger collection with a much more varied background.
The recipes come from other cooks (many from a dinner cooperative at Carnegie Mellon that I am a member of), magazines, and from the Internet. I have tampered with most to suit my own taste but a few are included exactly as I received them. Since I have really copied these recipes in one form or another, I have no sense of ownership of the recipes in this collection. Feel free to do with them as you like.
This collection is the antithesis of the typical computer collection. There is no database program to do fancy things with. It is not even modular, doesn\u2019t follow any standard format to allow easy inclu- sion of other recipes. However, it is just what you want if you are not a nerd about your cooking. I have spent an awful lot of time into the formatting so that it is easy to read and most recipes are in a consistent format. I have even have produced an index. Put it in a three hole binder that lays \ufb02at on your kitchen counter and don\u2019t worry about getting turmeric on the pages.
This version has several new recipes and many of the old recipes have been improved for clarity and many errors have been \ufb01xed. If you are trying to get hold of this collection, see the Section labeled HOW TO GET THIS COLLECTION. Feedback is always welcome. The preferred medium is electronic mail.
