Returning from India, American Food Did Not Taste That Great! 🙂

Returning from India, American Food Did Not Taste That Great! 🙂

When I came back to New York after spending a few weeks in India, it felt very nostalgic. The climate in India is always mild and mellow. People in India, in spite of going through many serious obstacles, are warm and friendly. And Indian food truly embraces you with its unbelievable taste, diversity, and culinary artistry. I do not want to undermine the talents of the many young and old chefs that thrive here in America, with their ratings and rewards and numerous followers. But here I am...

What People Are Saying


"We had a wonderful time at Mukti’s kitchen. It was slow, thorough, participatory and always engaging. I feel ready to throw away all of my powdered spices and start adding complex and healthy flavor to my food. "

"We took a lesson with Mukti and it was an incredible experience, would recommend to anyone! She warmly welcomed us into her home (even when I was running very late due to traffic), taught us how to cook a wonderful meal, and shared stories about her life with us. And the food was so delicious. We’d gladly go back again!"

"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she taught the entire class over Zoom, with three cameras that showed every step of the preparation. "

-Michael Y.

"What a fantastic time we had with Mukti! It was an immersion in the delicious side of her Chemistry wisdom, both in what we learned about Indian spices and in how beautifully she integrated our little group into the food’s secrets and marvels. Just so much fun and rewarding to be a part of. My wife and I heartily recommend a visit, pakora, saag paneer, and some butter chicken!"
