Here’s a personal story. It is strange to write about my students reviews of my Indian Cooking Class in Brooklyn, NY. People from India are in general so introverted and reluctant to talk about ourselves that sometimes, we are not doing justice to our own talents and accomplishments. We call it modesty – at east that how it has been for our generation, but more often than not, it’s not helpful to promote the work we do, and the business we run. In my case, it has been an unbelievably difficult...
We grew up in this city. We were born in this city. And this city – Kolkata -- was known as Calcutta for a long time because British colonial rulers could not pronounce it properly. And they imposed it on us, just the same way they imposed their way of thinking on us. They made us believe that we are not able, or worthy, to take care of ourselves, and that we needed their help to run the country. Meanwhile, they destroyed Bengal’s economy, and turned one of the richest places in the world into...
Last week, after a very long fourteen-hour flight from New York to Delhi and then after a five-hour halt in Delhi, another two hours of flying, we landed in Kolkata. This is the city we grew up in, and every time we come here, it brings a deep joyful sense of homecoming. Only problem is, this time we came in early summer, and thanks to global warming and climate change, it’s already near 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Of course, in Delhi, it was 110.

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. "
"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!"
