Mowgli Street Food (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) is currently $1.99 on Amazon.com and .ca.  It's a fun book by barrister Nisha Katona who started the Mowgli Street Food restaurants in the UK.  I bought the hard copy almost solely to make the Smoked Cardamom Old Fashioned but I've enjoyed cooking other recipes or just browsing for inspiration. 

Thanks! Find it hard to resist anything that will amuse me and only costs $1.99 (which is still part of a Christmas present!)

Edited to add: This is really odd but as I was copying and pasting Amazon info into this discussion, I discovered all of the prices had gone up by a $1.00US. Very strange. I only hope they don't go up further in price.:(

Edited again to say that the price difference may have something to do with the Amazon credit that I kept getting an error message about.

Regarding the $1 difference I was seeing in price (see above post), yes, it was because of an Amazon credit that somehow kept not getting applied to my purchases.
