In the journey of the self, we often revisit our past, our tradition, our culture to find ourselves. It is a pleasure to invite you to share in one such journey... a journey that began more than eighty years ago and has found its culmination in a befitting tribute – "Cooking at Home with Pedatha". This book revisits tradition, a culinary tradition of an illustrious family, which fed not just friends and family, but many stalwarts of India’s glorious past.
   
Jigyasa Giri and Pratibha Jain take the initiative to record this legacy for posterity. The unfolding of this culinary legacy centres around eighty-five-year-old Subhadra Krishna Rau Parigi. Fondly called Pedatha, (short for Peddha Atthayya, which means father’s sister in Telugu), she is the oldest offspring of former President of India, Bharat Ratna Dr. V.V. Giri, and Smt. Saraswathi Bai Giri. 

A passionate cook, Pedatha's recipes are much sought after by friends and relatives. Her cooking has remained unchanged in the face of changing times, retaining the traditional flavours and an old world charm. At her best and happiest in the kitchen, she has taught many younger sisters, daughters, grand-daughters and daughters-in-law, and has once again shared these age-old recipes with Jigyasa and Pratibha.
 
 "Our heartfelt desire was to show Pedatha how a 'seemingly' ordinary skill of hers is in truth a rare genius…and thus came about this book at the greatest speed possible", the authors say.

Through a journey of love and learning, the authors take the initiative to record this culinary legacy for posterity. Rendered in stunning aesthetics, the book also gives a peek into the simple presentation of traditional Andhra vegetarian food, as well as the affection and joy which was shared in bridging the gap between the spoken and the written word. It is a tribute to Pedatha and her generation. As the prominent food columnist of more than 50 years Mrs. Malathi Chandoor has applauded, "All of us will live for 70 years or 80 years, but this book will live for ever."

Customer Reviews of Cooking At Home With Pedatha
Review by Aruna: Friday 02 April, 2010
Cooking at home with Pedatha was referred to me by a friend when I asked her for an authentic Andhra cookbook. The recipes brought back memories of dishes I ate as a child. What I like about the book is its presentation which is visually appealing and the simplicity with which the recipes are explained. Podis and Pachachadis were something I never gave importance to earlier. They were at best used when one didn’t have time or mood to cook a vegetable or when one is in a hurry. That they are something unique to Andhra cosine dawned on me only after seeing the wonderful presentation in the book “Cooking at home with Pedatha”. The meal suggestions at the end of the book make it easier to plan a quick meal without much effort. In all, it could make an excellent gift to someone living away from Andhra and who would want to learn about authentic Andhra Cooking.
