If you though that 'The F Word' was a racy novel by commonly used 'F'word, you might be disappointed. But for the lovers of 'Food' it's another drool-worthy book.

The F Word by Indian author, Mita Kapur is a book for food lover, for the people who enjoy gastronomical pleasures in life and aren't ashamed of being gluttons. "Says the author, I love food, I'm always looking for a bite to eat - the reason which inspired me to write about the book."

Unlike cuisine books which stick to certain recipes and strict cuisines Mita refuses to compartmentalize food in categories. "I'm not going to follow cuisines, I like to keep the structure casual, what I have learnt over the years, which I'm emotionally attached to, I haven't stuck to one cuisine, recipes handed out by my mother-in-law.

A mother of two daughters she reveals that her primary reason for writing the book was to write something for her daughters who she claims are now her best friends. "The book is part memoir, travel and experiences and also focuses on family values." Reading a chapter from her book - Go Green, "In this passage I try to induce my kids to eat green veggies - spinach, lettuce, ghobi, tinda," she says with a laugh.

Touted as a delightful book for food fanatics, the book boasts recipes which are 'tried and tested'.
