Description
 
Britain ruled India for almost 150 years from the early 1800’s A.D. to 1947 A.D. During this period, the British encountered a world of new flavors within various Indian cuisines. Some recipes were ‘created’ to suit the British palate, which usually meant reducing the level of heat and adding cream and/or sweetener to the traditional recipe. When Europeans left India, these dishes found a place in Europe, and the rest is Anglo-Indian cuisine history. For his January appearance at COOK, Washington D.C. resident and Mumbai native Rupen Rao will prepare Anglo Indian favorites, including Deccan railway spinach; chicken tikka masala with naan; lamb vindaloo with Bombay potatoes; and saffron crème brûlée. Rao, who has a line of cookbooks and simmering sauces, 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.”
