Paachakam, ‘cooking’ or ‘preparation’ in Malayalam, is the title of Sabita Radhakrishna’s latest cookbook, a compilation of heritage cuisine and legacy recipes from Kerala.

Sabita’s earlier cookbooks include Aharam, which won the prestigious Gourmand French World Cookbook Award, India, in 2002, and the highly successful Annapurni, covering all major communities in Tamil Nadu. ‘The South is constantly identified with sambar and rasam. I want to showcase the richness of Southern cuisine.’ says Sabita. Paachakam is one more organic step towards achieving this dream.
