Curry has become an integral part of our staple diet but few of us are aware of what 'authentic' means when it comes to Britain's favourite food - how it is cooked and what makes it so sublime.
Instead we have been patronised with dumbed-down versions of wonderfully spiced dishes through the provision of gooey mixtures that slime their way out of jars. 'No more!' cries self-proclaimed Urban Rajah Ivor Peters.
The search for homemade, straightforward fragrant food ends here. Packed full of inspiring stories and generations-old recipes, this book opens the door into a world of family cooking that will teach us how to cook delicious curry in our own homes.
So put down that jar of low-fat chicken tikka masala, rip up your takeaway menu and let Ivor lead you through a journey of spice that will leave you revelling in colour, yearning for the delicate smells of cardamom and cinnamon and desperate to tear a chapatti to shreds and plunge it into a curry feast of your own making.
