Friday, February 9, 7pm: Anglo Indian Cuisine: East meets West with Rupen Rao of Rupen’s

Price $155.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Anglo-Indian food is the delicious result of the British Raj in India. Indian cooks took aspects of British cuisine and amalgamated them with Indian cooking methods and ingredients to create what is referred to as Anglo-Indian cuisine! Think soups tempered with cumin, roasts prepared with whole spices like cloves and cinnamon, croquettes flavored with turmeric and garam masala. When Europeans left India, these dishes found a place in Europe. For his February appearance at COOK, Washington D.C. resident and Mumbai native Rupen Rao will prepare Anglo Indian favorites, including mulligatawny soup; lamb vindaloo with Deccan Railway spinach; chicken tikka masala with naan; gulab jamun crème brûlée. Rao, who has a line of cookbooks and spice blends, has made it his mission to take classic Indian cooking and adapt it to our day-to-day lifestyle here in the United States. Guests will receive a copy of Rupen’s cookbook Indian Cooking: Popular Restaurant Dishes. Recipes will be provided.
