June 19, 2007
My dear Mr. Parigi, Hearty Congratulations! We are delighted and rejoice at the news that your mother, Mrs. Subhadra Krishna Rau Parigi’s book has won the award for “Best Vegetarian Cookbook in the world” at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2006 held in Beijing, China.

The acclaim and recognition she has won, is surely well-deserved, and we share your pride and joy at this great distinction. Yes, it is a proud moment for your family and we are happy for you. We feel certain this cookbook will be a must for almost every Indian both in India and abroad, as well as “vegetarians” all over the globe…

“India” as a nation, must be proud of this unique accomplishment.
With Best Wishes
Amitabh Bachchan

I have gone through your book. I am not much of cook. In fact I am not a cook at all. But I can proudly declare that I am a gourmet, and a glutton of gourmet food, a contradiction perhaps, but true. I have gone through your book and find it great. All the recipes my mom my peddattas and pinna attas, pinnis and peddammas, bamma and ammamma reveled in dishing out for our pleasure, I found them there, and some of them as mouth-wateringly great photographs. The book is well laid out. Really a book to be cherished!
