Friday, April 28, 7pm: COOKbook Author Series: Indian Cuisine Jugalbandi with Rupen Rao

Price $160.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Jugalbandi means "entwined twins." The East and the West parts of India have similar topography, but the cuisines are in contrast of each other. For his April appearance at COOK, Washington D.C. resident and Mumbai native Rupen Rao will share his recipes for East and West cuisines of India: fish paturi (banana leaf wrapped mustard fish - east); machcher jhol (Bengal shrimp curry - east) with Bengali pulao (spiced rice - east); Goan chicken curry (west) with poha (flattened rice - west); and amba doi (mango yogurt brulee - east). 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 second cookbook Indian Cooking: Popular Restaurant Dishes.
