A mouth-watering insight into the homes and hearts of the Kutchi Memon community, an esoteric group of idiosyncratic individuals who put an oddly gigantic premium on the gift of taste, through the story of Razia, who epitomises the quintessential Memon girl. She uses food to open doors in her life. Her magic wand is her favourite wooden ladle which she uses to prepare the meals, her recipes are likened to magic spells, hence spice sorcery. As her life unfolds through the chapters, her magical talent enchants a diverse cast of characters-her food-obsessed uncle Munavvar, her autocratic mother-in-law Shakira and her emotionally strained sister in law Rabia. The story is simmered and sprinkled with the recipes in a tale as delicious as the food itself.
