Eat Pray Eat


Nominated for British Travel Press Book of the Year

World-weary, distracted and more often than not the worse for wine, Michael Booth really needed to make some major changes to his life. Instead, he embarks on an over-ambitious, self-indulgent attempt to write the definitive book on Indian food, taking his wife and two young children with him.

They criss-cross India, from mist-shrouded Delhi, to Mumbai and the slums of Dharavi, meeting the locals and sampling different cuisines along the way. However, his plan is derailed as he spirals deeper into his metaphysical middle-aged malaise, finally unravelling in the sweltering heat of the Keralan Backwaters.

Fortunately, his wife takes control and enrols her disintegrating husband in a hardcore yoga bootcamp, enlisting a wise meditation guru to help him chart a path towards enlightenment. But will Booth’s cynicism and untrammelled appetites prove his undoing? Can he regain his balance, conquer his anxieties and face up to life as a husband and father?
