Rave Reviews for Kalpana Gajjar's Cooking Class at Cambridge Cohousing
Video highlights from last Sunday's traditional Gujarati Thali cooking class with Kalpana Gajjar. Gujararti cuisine is vegetarian and comes from the state of Gujarati in western India. Our sumptuous meal included Bhinda nu Shak (okra), Kadhi (yogurt and chick pea flour soup), Channa (Indian chick peas), Sheero (cream of wheat porridge), Paratha (semi-fied whole wheat bread) and Vegetable Pullao (rice pilaf). Thank you Kalpana (and Jess) for a great meal!

Writers are encouraged to bring a short work in progress to read at our open mic at the beginning of the reading and any published works they may have to sell after the readings.
