AUTHOR EVENT! Sun. Sept. 25. Anita Jaisinghani. Masala: Recipes from India, the Land of Spices. 3:00 p.m. FREE TO ATTEND (THE PRICE LISTED IS FOR THE BOOK)!

Born and raised in Gujarat, India, award-winning chef Anita Jaisinghandi’s approach to cooking is simple: following the tenets of ancient Ayurveda, food is seasonal, texture and color are celebrated, and spices are used to enhance, not overwhelm. Masala teaches readers to think like an Indian chef, revealing the wisdom and techniques to cooking with fresh whole spices: identifying warming versus cooling, order of use, tempering in hot oil, and much more.

With recipes drawing inspiration from every corner of India, including fermented dosas; sweet and savory chutneys; fragrant chicken, fish, and pork curries; samosas; pakoras; and naans, these recipes pay homage to one of the oldest and most diverse cuisines on the planet. Expect to be wowed with new flavors and combinations, such as Saffron Citrus Pilaf, Coconut Lassi, Jackfruit Masala, Vindaloo Ribs, and Smoked Eggplant Raita. Learn just how simple and delicious Indian food can be in this stunning and accessible debut cookbook.
