“IT WASN’T UNCOMMON IN MY CHILDHOOD FOR ROTI TO BE OFF THE MENU BECAUSE THE ROLLING PIN WAS BROKEN AGAIN.”

It is Ernest van der Kwast’s overbearing yet loving Indian mother who is at the centre of this big-hearted, hilarious family saga. Veena van der Kwast is a woman with an iron will, hilarious directness and a talent for haggling. When armed with her trusty rolling pin, every man she meets is eventually beaten to submission – especially her husband and three sons.

Including other equally delightful and amusing characters, this book is an intimate glimpse into van der Kwast’s childhood. Whether it is his strait-laced Dutch father, his Bollywood star Uncle Sharma or his talented heptathlete Aunt Jasleen, they all come together to lovingly entertain you in this engaging and charming book.

Intriguing, surprising and moving in equal measure, Mama Tandoori is inspired by an unusual family that will make you chuckle from beginning to end.
