Madhur Jaffrey & Padma Lakshmi In Conversation
Madhur Jaffrey is more than an icon. As Padma put it at this year’s Cherry Bombe Jubilee Conference, “She is the greatest living writer on Indian food—ever.” Padma, the Top Chef star and best-selling author, interviewed Madhur at Jubilee and it was a riveting conversation that touched on a wide range of topics: protesting with Mahatma Gandhi, working with the legendary cookbook editor Judith Jones, facing discrimination as an Indian actress, and cheering on the young women championing both Indian food and representation today, like Priya Krishna and Meera Sodha. Madhur, who has written dozens of cookbooks, published her latest this spring, Madhur Jaffrey's Instantly Indian Cookbook: Modern and Classic Recipes for the Instant Pot.
Introducing Madhur and Padma are Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau. The sisters and culinary superstars from Jamaica are the authors of the cookbooks Provisions and Caribbean Potluck.
Stay tuned to hear who Ellen King of Hewn in Evanston, Illinois, thinks is the bombe!
