Sacred Offerings – A cookery workshop that I did recently to showcase recipes (mentioned below) from temple kitchens in South India. I also wove into it stories, songs and local legends in this thematic cookery workshop. Yesterday’s workshop turn out was amazing and I am ever grateful to those who encourage me in these culinary endeavours. Here are some photos from yesterday’s session. If you would like a presentation for a private audience or in your city, please reach out to me.
