Making Indian Food Accessible
Last night’s cooking plans were abandoned due to laundry, so I thought I’d use this opportunity to talk about another one of my favorite cooking shows: The Next Food Network Star.
Like Master Chef, The Next Food Network Star is about giving a professional opportunity to home-chefs. Love it! H and I watch the show pretty regularly, and definitely have our favorites. Hands down, I’m rooting for Aarti. Indian food has always eluded me – in the past I’ve found it way too spicy – but she makes it look so appetizing that I was persuaded to give it another go. Well, H and I went for Indian dinner last weekend and I loved it. Not only did I love it, I am now inspired to make some on my own. Aarti has lots of recipes on her website and I’m putting them on my list. First up? Samosas.
