The iconic Padmashree Thangam E Philip (1921–2009) was a giant in the world in cooking, catering and nutrition. In her long career, spanning more than 50 years, she worked tirelessly to educate people about the joys and health-giving benefits of cooking. Her recipes, always simple but delicious, have inspired countless numbers to take up the culinary arts.

In this book, she embarks on a gastronomic journey through the wonderful and diverse world of plants. From roots to leaves, cereals to spices, and nuts to fruits, she describes their nutritional benefits medicinal properties and how to use them in everyday cooking—a subject very close to her heart.
