For the first event I will be sharing the kitchen with my mother. Each dish represents a collaboration and a passing on and sharing of knowledge which was previously taught to her by her mother, Bhanumati.
This event is dedicated to my mother, grandmother and the countless number of Gujarati women in India and in the diaspora who have demonstrated their hearts, sacrifices, abilities and spirits through cuisine along the ongoing path towards international women’s equality.
All proceeds, as a form of Prasad, will be donated to Anandi-India, whose mission is to bring rural Gujarati women’s concerns to the attention of developmental processes in order to create a more equitable society.
A special thanks to Paige, Gabi, Merit and everyone at Archestratus. Paige and her team have been like a second home and inspirational space in Greenpoint—for that reason we are especially excited to begin this journey together with them.
For questions regarding dietary needs, concepts, inquiries, or the abstract thing known as the future of Bhanumati, feel free to contact Ankur at firstname.lastname@example.org.
