The AK family are from Punnad in the Malabar region of Kerala, and are extremely proud of their culinary legacy. These recipes that have long been guarded-secrets, have now been generously compiled into The Family Table, so that the dishes that we have long cherished and loved can now be part of your table, too.
The Family Table was brought to life by a team of volunteers from the family who generously lent their time and culinary expertise. Standardising decades-old recipes, that are traditionally passed on orally, is no small task, and each recipe has undergone a rigorous round of testing to make it adaptable to kitchens around the world. The recipes in the book have been contributed and tested by Mubeena A.K, Raheema A.K, Jabeena Ali, Sakeena Fazal, Kathija Hashim, Shabreen Hashir, Shaheen Hashir, Waheeda Kaliyadan, Rabiya Kareem, Hidaya Mayan, Hashida Nasser, Ameena Rafeeque, P.K Rafiya, P.K Razia and A.K Rukhiya.
The book has been written and photographed by Aysha Tanya.
