IAAC Presents Madhur Jaffrey In Conversation with Priya Krishna on Food, Cookbooks and more

Madhur Jaffrey has earned many titles, ‘Queen of Indian Cooking’, ‘Godmother of Indian Cooking’, ‘Ambassador of Indian Cuisine’ and more. She’s written 30 cookbooks and is an icon in the food world. The Indo-American Arts Council (www.IAAC.us), is delighted to present her new book, Madhur Jaffrey’s Instantly Indian Cookbook: Modern and Classic Recipes for the Instant Pot® on June 20ᵀᴴ 6PM at DAG, 41 E 57th St building suite 708, New York, NY 10022.

She will be in conversation with Priya Krishna, food writer/contributor to the New York Times, The New Yorker, Bon Appétit, and more. Audience can look forward to a lively evening with discussions on the unexpected way Madhur Jaffrey uses her Instant Pot, instant recipes which might end up becoming instant hits, like her mango soup, inspired by the flavorful diversity of regional Indian cuisine. She will also share many other tricks such as using the Instant Pot for fish, roasting potatoes with a quick 2-step process and also what not to use the Instant Pot for.

In the new book Jaffrey provides inviting, easy-to-follow recipes—some entirely new, others reworked classics-for preparing fantastic Indian food at home. While these dishes are quick and easy to prepare, they retain all the rich complexity for which Jaffrey’s food has always been known, making this the only Indian cookbook with recipes designed for the Instant Pot you’ll ever need. From classics like butter chicken and buttery dal to new sure-to-be-favorites like kale cooked in a Kashmiri style and Goan-style clams, these recipes capture the flavorful diversity of Indian cuisine. Rather than simply adapting recipes for one-pot cooking, Jaffrey has selected the essential dishes best suited for preparing using the Instant Pot, and created some all-new delectable dishes that make the most of its strengths.

Priya Krishna who will be moderating and talking to Jaffrey at the event is amongst the top food writers and comes from an exciting new generation of young food writers who are able to bridge the gap between Indian and International taste palates. Talking about Jaffrey’s book, Krishna had this to say, “One of the best cookbooks to come out of the Instant Pot craze. It’s full of those timeless Indian recipes Jaffrey is known for. . . . The flavor to ease factor ratio in these recipes is undoubtedly high, and, as always, Jaffrey’s calm, nurturing voice guides you through each step.”.

A book signing follows the event and includes a wine reception. Both Madhur Jaffrey’s Instantly Indian Cookbook and Priya Krishna’s cookbook Indianish will be on sale and available for book signing. This will also be an opportunity to meet Jaffrey and Krishna and talk to them and maybe discuss their recipes in person!
