Description
 
Mogul emperors ruled India from 1483 A.D. to 1858 A.D., and they took India’s culinary art to a zenith. These rulers were from Central Asia (Persia as it was then known) and they brought in exotic nuts, spices, and fruits. Their team of chefs got acquainted with India’s culinary offerings, and since they mostly ruled north of India, the culinary cuisine of north India gave birth to yet another kind of Indian cuisine called Mughlai Cuisine. The use of Persian ingredients along with Indian spices and ingredients gave birth to a delicious cuisine that is revered all over India and the world. This December join COOK veteran Rupen Rao for a walk down memory lane as he brings the Emperor's table to Philadelphia with a menu that features garlic spinach; tomato lamb stew with garlic naan; chicken pistache; shirin pulao (orange and saffron sweet rice); and sheer kurma (vermicelli Pudding). Rupen, who is a resident of Washington, DC, is an Indian cuisine chef instructor, travel chef, and an author of three cookbooks. Rupen has made it his mission to simplify Indian cuisine and make it accessible to patrons here in the United States. Each guest will receive a copy of Rupen’s “Indian Cooking: Popular Restaurant Dishes.” Recipes will be provided.
