Plants, Cuisine and Culture

Plants are intimately linked to our cultural identities and food traditions. Plants tell us where we are, and who we are in how we use them to feed ourselves. When we migrate, we carry our culture and cuisine with us. In this series, renowned chefs, culinary historians, and authors from cultures around the world discuss how plants shaped their foodways.

Join Chef Simon Majumdar, world-renowned broadcaster, food writer, speaker, author and cook as he discusses Indian Cuisine.

Online webinar conducted via Zoom.
