amongst them was the venerable Parsi chef and cookery writer Bhicoo Manekshaw whose Parsi Food & Customs is a charming ode to Parsi recipes as well as a repository of our cultural customs historical religious and geographical Manekshaw’s book will always occupy a treasured place in my cookbook place as will Vividh Vani third in my trinity of iconic Parsi community cookbooks Published in 1903 in Gujarati it is full of uncompromising recipes made with utensils I’ve never heard of all explained in interminable sentences that stretch into paragraphs Nevertheless it is well worth the effort —it is after all an artefact of the fast-vanishing cuisine of my foremothers and forefathers My home would not be complete without it Meher Mirza is a Mumbai-based independent writer and editor with a focus on food and travel For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Tech Desk | Updated: January 31 2017 5:44 pm Microsoft Amazon and Expedia to fight Trump’s order on immigration (Image source : Reuters) Related News Technology giants Microsoft Amazon and Expedia have come in support for a lawsuit filed by the state of Washington challenging President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration Both Amazon and Expedia have each filed declarations in a federal court in Washington Microsoft on the other hand has stated that it would “be happy to testify further if needed” The statements outline how each technology company is affected by Trump’s executive order which blocks the entry of immigrants predominantly from seven Muslim countries (Iran Iraq Libya Syria Yemen Somalia and Sudan) for 90 days and refugees for 120 days Watch all our videos from Express Technology The lawsuit filed by Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson and State Governor Jay Inslee accuses the Trump administration of violating the Constitution’s guarantee of Equal Protection the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause the right to due process and the federal Immigration and Nationality Act “It is an insult and a danger to all of the people of the state of Washington of all faiths” Inslee told reporters according to a Reutersreport The lawsuit asserts thatTrump’s immigration order “is separating Washington families harming thousands of Washington residents damaging Washington’s economy hurting Washington-based companies and undermining Washington’s sovereign interest in remaining a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees” In an email to employees Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos said the order “is one we do not support” “We are a nation of immigrants whose diverse backgrounds ideas and points of view have helped us build and invent as a nation for over 240 years” Bezos wrote “We reached out to Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle to explore legislative options Our legal team has prepared a declaration of support for the Washington State Attorney General who will be filing suit against the order We are working other legal options as well” he added Also read:Google employees come out to protest Trump’s immigration order Expedia has sharply criticised President Trump’s immigration executive order in an email to employees?
