Cooking Class Demo with 92Y.org
I love to teach and preach Indian food, Gujarati food and with the coming out of this cookbook, I am getting several opportunities to teach cooking! That brings so much joy to me, to be able to impart the learnings, passed down by my mother to me, and now to the people! It is truly the best kind of joy, contentment. And for people to recreate your dishes, and enjoy them, is next level happiness!
My publicist at Countryman Press, Nick connected me to 92y.org, who in collaboration with renowned, esteemed bookstore Kitchen Arts and Letters, is hosting me virtually to do a cooking demo online, that I am really excited about!

Indian cooks are masters of flavor, and Jam Lab blog creator Amisha Dodhia Gurbani takes flavor to new levels.
She joins us from her California kitchen to teach a recipe from her gorgeous new book Mumbai Modern, inspired by both her Indian roots and the California cuisine she discovered as an immigrant. Gurbani will demonstrate her recipe for Breakfast Naan Pizza, a delicious and clever example of Mumbai’s savory breakfast dishes. Gurbani starts with leftover naan, topping it with with melty, stretchy, flavor-packed Oaxaca cheese, potatoes spiced with coriander and turmeric, peppers, onions and eggs, and finishes the pizza with fresh cilantro after baking. As she teaches the recipe, she’ll share stories about her unique cuisine and keeping tradition alive for future generations. “Food is memory. Food is communication. Food is love,” Gurbani says. Join her for this joyful class celebrating her vibrant cross-cultural cuisine and learn how to make a flavor bomb pizza — for breakfast.
Hope you will join me in this cooking class, where I will show a demo of how to make homemade delicious Butter Garlic Naan, followed by the Breakfast Naan Pizza!
Hope to see you there!
