The Cuisine of India
Chef/cookbook author Suneeta Vaswani joins forces with the owners of Dharma Café, John Gurney and Susan Ralph, to whip up a little edible fun at The Cuisine of India party. All of the recipes were doing, the six appetizers and two entrées, are from my two [cook]books, says Vaswani. One of the appetizers is onion clusters, which are absolutely addictive. They disappear within seconds, she laughs. I warned them, you can make armloads and theyll disappear just as fast.
Theres live music by Moodafaruka, a fabulous band that does world music. Its mostly a mix-and-mingle party, but Ill be happy to talk about food with anyone. Vaswani is a real authority on Indian food the longtime chef and writer spent several years living in India learning family recipes so take the opportunity to chitchat with a culinary expert.
