Do you like Indian cuisine? Author to speak, give cooking demonstration at Hudson Library event

HUDSON, Ohio – Hudson Library and Historical Society is hosting a virtual livestream event with New York Times food reporter and cookbook author Priya Krishna.

Krishna, author of “Indian-ish: Recipes and Antics from a Modern American Family,” will speak at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 18. Krishna will also give a short cooking demonstration. This is part of the library’s ‘Explore India’ month.

Krishna’s Book was included in a list of the best spring 2019 cookbooks by The New York Times and Bon Appétit.

Her book is described as a loving tribute to her mother’s “Indian” cuisine. The culinary creations fuse the Indian flavors of her childhood with her travels around the world and inspiration from cooking shows.

Stories of Krishna – who was named in Forbes’ 2020 “30 Under 30” – have appeared in editions of “The Best American Food Writing”. She also wrote the college-centric cookbook “Ultimate Dining Hall Hacks.”

Copies of “Indian-ish” will be available for purchase at Learned Owl Book Shop, 204 N. Main St., Hudson.

Registration is mandatory; attendees will receive a Zoom invitation one day prior to the start of the program. Email [email protected] or call 330-653-6658, ext. 1010.
