In Vij's at Home: Relax, Honey, Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij show you how to prepare the recipes they eat at home, from vegetarian dishes that go from stove to plate in less than 45 minutes to seafood, poultry and meat dishes that come together in 20 minutes then cook while you help the kids with their homework or sit down with a glass of wine. Designed for flavour, versatility and convenience, virtually every recipe can be adapted to suit your palate, your dietary preferences or your on-hand ingredients. Clear instructions, stunning photographs, a conversational tone and a paperback format make this an affordable must-have for every kitchen-for first-time cooks to more experienced chefs.

"It would be hard to imagine a warmer, more easygoing introduction to Indian cuisine in North America than the one put together by the Vancouver restaurateurs Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij in their VIJ’S AT HOME: Relax, Honey. “Ours is a whimsical, loud and very social cuisine that practically begs for you to share it with as many people as possible,” the couple write. “Its aromas will go through your entire home, the floor of your apartment building or your entire neighborhood block. True, as it happens! The book is hardly encyclopedic or even authentic to anything other than Dhalwala and Vij’s heartfelt desire for families to eat together from the larder they use at their excellent restaurant on Vancouver’s West Side. But they will eat well for that: spicy cauliflower “steaks” with rice; mung beans in coconut curry; the restaurant’s justly celebrated fiery lamb “popsicles.” "
