My Two Souths

Blending the Flavors of India into a Southern Kitchen

From award-winning chef and restaurateur Asha Gomez comes this collection of recipes that fuse together the “Two Souths” that are near and dear to her heart: the beloved cuisine of Southern India, and the downhome tastes of the American South.

My Two Souths takes you on a culinary journey with Chef Asha Gomez, from her small village in the Kerala region of southern India to her celebrated restaurants in Atlanta, and on into your kitchen. Her singular recipes are rooted in her love of Deep-South cooking, as well as the Southern Indian flavors of her childhood home. Recipes include:

  • Kerala Fried Chicken and Waffles
  • Black Cardamom Smothered Pork Chop
  • Vivid Tomato and Cheese Pie
  • Masala Lamb Burgers with Mint Chutney
  • Three Spice Carrot Cake

Written with James-Beard award winning cookbook writer Martha Hall Foose.
