There is a wonderful vegan dinner happening on Friday night that I thought you might enjoy! It is in Bushwick, Brooklyn just steps from the L train at the home of Ashley and Jack.
I have eaten with Ashley and Jack (a yoga instructor and professional cook, respectively) and they are incredibly sweet hosts and talented chefs.
From Ashley & Jack:
After attending a Vedic cooking class at Lightning in a Bottle in California, we were inspired to create this meal for our EatWith Guests. Vedic cooking is part of the traditional Indian medicinal system of Ayurveda. We will explore this holistic approach to health, nutrition, and healthcare by sharing this meal together.
We will demonstrate the frying of poori (puri) bread then share a tasting of delicious chutneys and sauces we have prepared. The second course will feature a deconstructed samosa appetizer we will plate for each guest. Then each guest will help add one ingredient to the Kitchuri. Everyone will be served a plate from the pot of herbs, vegetables, dal, and rice that we create together. Dessert will be an Indian inspired delicacy. We will also serve our homemade chai tea and aged rum cocktail!
