I recently spoke to Rani Sidhu, the author of the wonderful cookbook "Menus and Memories from Punjab" which blends great Punjabi recipes with her engaging and heartwarming reminiscences and stories from her homeland. During our call, Rani offered to share the proceeds from the sale of her book with SikhNet as her and her husband's way of showing support for the work that SikhNet is blessed to do.
I originally reviewed Rani's book when it was first published in 2009 and SikhNet published several articles by and about Rani. See these links for a sampling:
Rani is also a columnist for SikhChic.com where her articles have inspired me along with many others.
She spent thirty years at the side of her Punjabi mother-in-law in kitchens and communities in India and the U.S. A busy professional and mother, she learned to adapt American cooking techniques to traditional Indian food preparation. After a career as a high-school guidance director and pioneer in the Punjabi Sikh community of New Jersey, Rani began teaching Punjabi cooking in order to raise money for scholarships in her grandson's memory.
Now you can help SikhNet by buying a copy of her book. You can read more about the book as well as purchase a copy for yourself or as a gift here, or just click on the image below.
