Description
 
Be it north or be it south India, during summer the entire nation shares a common goal when it comes to food – beat the heat! Coconut, seafood, yogurt and cold desserts are everywhere, and a good smoked biryani (a layered meat and rice dish) is a perfect entrée with a cooling accompaniment of raita (a yogurt and cucumber condiment). This August, Washington D.C. resident, and Mumbai native Rupen Rao treats 16 lucky COOK guests to a proper Indian biryani lunch menu of mango lassi; coconut cilantro chutney fish cooked in banana leaves; chicken biryani with cucumber vegetable raita; and rose petal rice pudding. Rao, who has a line of cookbooks, spice blends 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 second cookbook “Indian Cooking: Popular Restaurant Dishes.” Recipes will be provided.
