"It would be hard to imagine a warmer, more easy going 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."

"While [Meeru Dhalwalla and Vikram Vij] could easily have succeeded on the strength of their culinary expertise, it is the personal touch that has brought renown to their restaurants and cookbooks. That feeling emanates from the restaurants' walls and keeps visitors coming back, and the same feeling will follow them home in Vij's cookbooks."

“This attractive, well-designed book introduces non-Indians...to everyday cooking in the home of an Indian-born Canadian couple, Meeru Dhalwala and Vikram Vij, who operate two Indian restaurants in Vancouver. In Vij’s at Home, they invite us into their home and introduce us to their family, their foibles and their interpretation of homestyle Indian cooking. They share recipes that they make, not for restaurant clientele, but for each other and their daughters. The book is well-illustrated with plenty of photography by John Sherlock showing techniques, completed dishes and the authors in action. The writing is conversational and fun to read.”
