Gourmets found their love for Calcutta’s flavors very well rewarded when the unveiling of the much awaited Oh! Calcutta cookbook was done by Tollywood hero Prasenjit Chatterjee. The ninety one exquisite recipes are a culmination of the taste of the romance between the city and the flavors.
Mr. Anjan Chatterjee, the author of the cookbook, said “This is an emotional moment for me. I never dreamed that the dishes I have cooked for the pleasure of many at my home and in my restaurants would one day be brought out in the form of a cookbook. The thing that I have leant by serving the diners in the city is this – there is a little bit of Calcutta in every one of us”.
