Come, eat, learn to make Indian kabobs. I will show you the basics on spicing your kabobs just right with a demo at the beautiful Bloomingdale's Medina Home Store and Culinary Kitchen. We'll be selling and signing copies of my book, Indian For Everyone. You will also sample other goodies including samosas and vegetarian tikka. This event is sponsored by Chicago Woman Magazine and will help raise money for A Leg Up Foundation, which helps support single mothers who have fallen on tough times. This is a free event, but please reserve your spot by emailing

Printer's Row. I love, love, love Printer's Row. How could I not, being an author? This year, I'll have a chance to cook on stage again. I hope you'll join me. In my 'Art of Dal' demo I'll show you how to pick the right lentil for your whatever recipe you are making and how to spice it just right. I will be at Jones College Prep/Food and Dining Stage/2nd Floor. Click here for more information.
