Michael Wood is the BBC’s answer to Ken Burns, and he does a brilliant job with this six-part documentary. The series starts tomorrow night on PBS. The accompanying website is beautifully done as well.
The show is brought to you by Patak’s, which happens to be the one way you can cook your own “Indian food” in the US, in Germany, France, and of course, the UK. Meena Patak – can you do us all a huge favor and bottle the taste of Moti Mahal’s butter chicken, please?
