Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math Cookbook
Humble request by Lavanya Mayi Devi Dasi of the Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math, London.
Please accept my humble obeisances. We are hoping you may be able to assist us with compiling a cookbook by sending your best recipes for the pleasure of our dearest Srila Bhakti Sundar Govinda Dev-Goswami Maharaj.
The Italian and London Math devotees are putting together a cookbook for Sri Chaitanya Saraswat Math to be printed in Italian, English and Spanish (three different books) — something we know we have needed for a long time. It will be a valuable preaching tool with Scriptural references, anecdotes in relation to our Sri Guru-varga, and great recipes. We humbly ask you to provide new recipes that you cannot find in any other cookbook. Please give appropriate quantities for servings for four to six people.
Kindly type the recipes by computer and save the text as rtf (rich text format). After making the preparations and offering them to the Lord, please take a digital picture (of good resolution) giving attention to the presentation: artistic, with seasoning, nice plate and some fresh ingredients, spices, nice light in the background, etc. Most digital cameras give best results in bright daylight. If you have any scriptural/cooking reference that you would like to add, that would be great, especially experiences from your association with our Gurus.
We wish to print by the summer, therefore we need to gather together as much as possible as soon as possible. We shall offer the completed book on an appropriate auspicious date to the lotus hands of Srila Gurudev for his pleasure.
With best wishes from your aspiring servant,
Lavanya Mayi Devi Dasi
