Straight from the MADFeed:
"Madhur Jaffrey is a celebrated actress, television and radio presenter, and author. Born in Delhi, she developed a passion for Indian cuisine as a young drama student in London. Her books, which include An Invitation to Indian Cooking, have influenced people throughout the western world.
After being introduced by Lucky Peach editor Peter Meehan as the person who has “perhaps done the most to introduce Indian cooking to the western world,” Jaffrey launched into a presentation that argued for food as the most ingestible form of culture. She explored culinary traditions from around the world, and the idea that no matter where your life may take you, your “taste of home” — the things your mouth has been trained to eat since the moment you were born — never fade away."
