I recently curated and showcased Thanjavur – A cooking demonstration of heirloom recipes from the Thanjavur region that had some long lost and forgotten recipes from the Tamils ,Thanjavur Marathis and the Thanjavur Royal family. A saturday that came together beautifully with Dr. Chithra Madhavan talking on the history of Thanjavur and temples in the region, stories and a special Thanjavur lunch for the guests that we put together. A huge shout out to Aapti Gardening Solutions for giving away micro greens / vegetable saplings & Lalah Masalas for sponsoring masala hampers to our guests.
Here are some photos from the workshop.
