About 1 year ago I hosted a cooking class lunch event called Spices 101, taught by Chef Kaumudi Marathe from Un-Curry. The event, at Surfas, was extremely fun and informative with delicious food. Since then I have had the pleasure of trying her food again and am very impressed with her passion for regional Indian food, the quality of the food she cooks and her attention to detail.

She will be hosting The Un-Curry Table, the first Indian Pop up restaurant in L.A. You can read more about it and pre-pay for a guaranteed seat at this link:

The event will take place at Surfas, in the Test Kitchen.
