Cookbooks by Pankaj Bhadouria :
The First Book
November 2011 saw the release of Pankaj’s First Cookbook The "MasterChef Cook Book".
The book was dedicated to the housewives in small towns who
wanted to experiment with varied Indian and international recipes
but were limited by the unavailability of exotic ingredients in their
towns. Taking this up as a challenge, Pankaj helped them discover
what they could do with their culinary skills on their own and
surprise their friends and relatives. Therefore the book has in it a
total of 75 recipes with the likes of - Khau Seuy (Burmese), Ravioli
in Pumpkin sauce (Italian), Baklava (Turkish), Burnt chili Garlic
Pot Rice (Oriental), Crown roast of Lamb in Barbeque sauce with
mashed potatoes (French) and Indian recipes like Masaledaar Raan,Paneer Makhani and more.
The book was priced at Rs.350 off the shelf and came in hard cover.
It became a bestseller having sold around 10,000 copies so far and
is certainly a proof of her popularity across India.
The Second Book
The second cookbook turned out to one for little girls! The cookbook
is a collection of 16 recipes with pictures, that little girls can do
themselves. It comes as a part of a ‘Barbie I Can be Chef’ kit
that has in it, an apron, puzzles, bookmark and the cookbook and is
priced at Rs.475.
