the workshop

Cookbook Author & Founder of Brooklyn Delhi, Chitra Agrawal will teach you how to make a South Indian vegetarian meal from family recipes passed down to her from her mother who grew up in Bangalore. This style of cooking is much different from the usual North Indian fare found in restaurants (no naan or tikka masala on this menu!) and features inventive vegetarian (and vegan-friendly) dishes that are light, fresh and spicy—including lots of fresh veggies, lemon, coconut and fried spices. In this workshop you'll learn about traditional South Indian spices and cooking methods and how to apply them to a variety of produce. The workshop includes a full meal, drinks, and a recipe booklet. Limited to 8.

Chitra Agrawal is the co-founder of Brooklyn Delhi, an award-winning food brand inspired by her Indian heritage. She is the author of Vibrant India: Fresh Vegetarian Recipes from Bangalore to Brooklyn (Penguin, 2017) (you may purchase the book with your workshop).  Chitra has specialized in developing recipes reflective of her Indian-American identity for over a decade. Her work has been featured in The New York TimesBon Appetit, Saveur and more.
