'Romy really takes her readers on a journey they’ve most likely not made before. In sharing her passion for the people, places and produce of Kashmir, Romy’s appetite for this lesser-known part of India – its ingredients, its recipes, its stories – becomes quite contagious.

Yotam Ottolenghi

'Travelling through glittering lakes and icy mountain passes, this is a fascinating, beguiling and delectable journey into the heart of Jammu and Kashmir.'

'Between the covers of this book is an incredible adventure: the views, traditions, flavours and scents of the Himalayas are all there, and we could not ask for a better, more knowledgeable guide to take us to the ceiling of the world than Romy.'

'There's nowhere I'm more desperate to visit than Kashmir. Unfortunately, Kashmir is also one of the hardest places to visit on the planet. Until it becomes possible, Romy's enchanting book is the next best thing. A transporting work at a time we all need transporting.'
