C'mon, cook happy with 'Aarti Paarti'

C'mon, cook happy with 'Aarti Paarti'

So many cookbooks these days approach food with an air of solemnity. Dishes are arranged like art projects. Techniques are explored in scientific detail. Ethical ramifications are expounded upon. This is all good. But you know what? Sometimes food just wants to be fun. And you won’t find a happier example of this than Aarti Sequeira’s new cookbook “Aarti Paarti.”

It’s not that Sequeira, a past winner of “Next Food Network Star” and host of shows on TVFN and the Cooking Channel, doesn’t take cooking seriously. But there is so much joy in her food that you can’t help but smile when reading her recipes.
