La Porte Des Indes Cookbook

The legacy of France in Indian regional cooking

By Mehernosh Mody, Sherin Alexander Mody and John Hellon.


Published in August 2005 , this hardback unique Indian cookbook features rich imagery, narratives and recipes of the French inspired cuisine of Pondichéry in Southern India. This cookbook presents the very best recipes from La Port, including many of these original ‘fusion’ dishes as well as other regional specialities from across the subcontinent.

The stunning photography by award-winning Belgian photographer Tony Le Duc captures the beauty of the finished dishes and the ambience of the restaurant.
