Another whose food is so much a part of the Adelaide experience is Ragini Dey, a diminutive Mirzapur-born chef, teacher, spice-flogger, author and all-round dynamo, turning up at festivals, cooking classes, catered events and of course cooking in her simple Indian cafe Ragi’s Spicery. The best Indian food I ever ate was at her old place, Dhaba at the Spice Kitchen – again in the ’burbs – but sadly it closed. Never mind. We cook from her lavish Spice Kitchen all the time, and now she’s done a new, self-published, spiral-bound, “write notes all over it” quickie called Everyday Indian. no pics, virtually no text, barely an index to speak of. Just very good recipes.
