Manjits and the Tandoor of Secrets
Author: Michael Cain
Who would think that a recipe for Butter Chicken could be so important?
But to the Gujral family - owners of the eponymous Manjits Wharf restaurant at Darling Harbour in Sydney, it is. It is also symbolic of their brand and core values, evolving into something more contemporary.
Manjits was one of the first Indian restaurants to open in Australia, and today has multiple sites across Sydney and Wollongong including a catering division and event management division.
But while Manjits is a successful business story, it is also a migrant story; one with all the highs and lows, and challenges, opportunities, and setbacks that many migrants encounter, as well as what happens when the second generation wants to start doing things their own way.
In Manjits and the Tandoor of Secrets, Michael Cain talks to all members of the Gujral family - father Manjit, mother Kawal, sons Deep and Varun - as well as colleagues, revealing a tandoor of secrets that readers will find fascinating and amusing and, with 18 recipes included, also delicious!
