Part two of Cooking with a Mumbai Caterer During the High Holidays 5777 was published today. In my article titled "Discovering Yom Kippur Tradition And A Beautiful Break-Fast Pastry In Mumbai" published in the Jewish Daily Forward today, not only did I share the cooking but also other traditions during the High Holidays.
Jewish Daily Forward with a Rosh HaShanah recipe. The short video of halwa making that was in the story came out fantastic (it will be attached to the article soon). Several quick videos I shot on my iPhone 6 were edited into one wonderful piece by the video editor. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The second part will be published in a week or so before Yom Kippur.
So proud to see "Chasing Challah in Mumbai", my first story out of India published in the Jewish Daily Forward today. Who would have thought chasing challah in India, out of all places, right?! My last post "Saffron, Turmeric, Curry Leaves, Cumin & Black Mustard Seeds Honey Challah" was inspired by this story and my travel experience. The story illustrates not only the life of the Jewish community in India today but also the ever-changing food culture and traditions. I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
