The f-word, family, food and vacations

DNA India, 26 November 2010 http://www.dnaindia.com/opinion/comment_the-f-word-family-food-and-vacations_1472162 It was the first time in eight years we were going away on a holiday. A family holiday with dog attached. And suddenly, we didn’t have a clue on how to go about it. Every aspect of it, from packing to where to sit in the car to the things we wanted to do, came with three points of view. The only one who didn’t have a particular opinion about anything in particular was […]

मेरी किताब में जायका है – मीता कपूर

Rajasthan Patrika, 30 November 2010 http://www.rajasthanpatrika.com/News/Rajasthan/11302010/mita-kapur-the-F-word/85399 जयपुर। किताबें जीवन है। ये नजरिया विकसित करती हैं। मुद्दों को समझने की नई दृष्टि पैदा करती हैं। सबसे अच्छी दोस्त भी होती हैं। लोगों को सभी विषयों की किताबें पढ़नी चाहिए। जीवन से जुडे हर पहलू पर। साथ ही बच्चों में भी पढ़ने की आदत डालनी चाहिए। टेक्नोलॉजी के दौर में भले ही बच्चे हर समय विडियो गेम्स, कम्प्यूटर और इंटरनेट में बिजी रहते हों लेकिन पैरेंट्स को अपने बच्चों में रीडिंग हैबिट […]

Launch of “The F Word”

Whazzup Delhi!!! 20 November 2010 http://whazzupdelhi.blogspot.com/2010/11/launch-of-f-word.html I’d been reading snippets of Mita Kapur’s The F Word even before the book was launched. A few illustrations with short tantalising explanations were enough to excite the foodie on me to start desperately searching for her book as soon as she announced that it was out. But it wasn’t to be found in a single Delhi book store. Not surprising considering that Harper Collins hadn’t launched it yet in Delhi. So when the invitation […]

The ‘F’ of course, stands for food – from kebabs and noodle salad to Goan curry and mud cake, you’ll find easy recipes for them all. In between these lists of delicacies, you’ll read about the heroine of the book who loves to eat and also loves to feed others. CM (Chhoti Mamma) is a woman with a […]

Reader’s Digest

The Open Magazine, 11 December 2010 http://www.openthemagazine.com/article/books/reader-s-digest Mita Kapur’s book is another addition to the feast of books that present food as memoir, politics and history. In Haruki Murakami’s short story ‘The Second Bakery Attack’, the narrator and his wife of two weeks find themselves one night with ‘an unbearable hunger’. As newlyweds, strangers yet to one another’s living habits, they find in their refrigerator six cans of beer, a few shrivelled onions, and a bottle of French salad dressing. […]
