Like Indian food? Author to speak, give cooking demo at Hudson Library event

HUDSON, Ohio – Hudson Library and Historical Society is holding a live virtual streaming event with New York Times food reporter and cookbook author Priya Krishna.

Krishna, author of “Indian-ish: Recipes and Antics from a Modern American Family,” will speak at 7 p.m. Monday, April 18. Krishna also will do a brief cooking demonstration. It’s part of the library’s “Explore India” Month.

Krishna’s book was included among a list of best cookbooks of spring 2019 by the New York Times and Bon Appétit.

Her book is described as a loving tribute to her mother’s “Indian-ish” cooking. The culinary creations merge Indian flavors of her childhood with her global travels and inspiration from cooking shows.

Stories from Krishna – who was named to Forbes’ “30 Under 30″ in 2020 – have appeared in editions of “The Best American Food Writing.” She also wrote the college-centric cookbook “Ultimate Dining Hall Hacks.”

Copies of “Indian-ish” will be available for purchase at Learned Owl Book Shop, 204 N. Main St., Hudson.

Registration is required; participants will receive a Zoom invitation a day before the program begins. Email [email protected] or call 330-653-6658, ext. 1010.
