PRINTED “Vividh Vani” by Meherbai Jamshedji Wadia


Dear All,

It gives me great pleasure to make available the PRINTED “Vividh Vani” by Meherbai Jamshedji Wadia.
First published in circa 1867, this mammoth cookbooks of two volumes total 1570 pages and has 2180 recipes, of traditional Parsi Indian cuisine, plus Continental Western and British Cuisines. This cookbook is an antique and many Zoroastrian Parsis hold it the dearly as an family heirloom. (including myself). My original copy is now falling apart like a cracker paper, and is kept in sealed plastic bags. Worms are probably eating away the paper! 30 years back I brought this original copy from Ahmedabad, India. It took me 6 months of work to scan these on a paper scanner, print and collate. I made a handwritten index in English so I could search recipes and then read the Gujarati text and cook for my family here in USA.
Through software and amazon services, We have managed to print the “Vividh Vani” in high quality paper . You can now own a brand-new copy of the Vividh Vani in strong paper bound books. These printed volumes are exactly the same antique and original books of Meherbai Jamshedji Wadia. They include photos and letters of the Wadia family. They are a legacy item for the parsi kom that can be preserved another 1000 years and more!
I have distributed the book as a FREE digital download for years on my website atwww.ParsiCuisine.comand now it is available in 2 four inch thick volumes. See photo (attached) and product details below.
