A Dahl’s House: 5 Course Indian Dinner at Archestratus This Friday!

Dhal, Ankur Parikh
Dhal, a food eaten “with equal relish by toothless toddlers, husky farmers and effete urban snobs.”

Join Greenpoint chef/playwright/physician Ankur Parikh at 7:30 pm this Friday, March 17 at Archestratus Food and Books (160 Huron St.) for “A Dhal’s House”, a 5 course vegetarian dinner celebrating the various types and ways dhal, the split pulse, can be used in a meal, and can bring people of various communities and socioeconomic classes together. And more importantly, the event will examine how an ingredient that is classically associated with the Indian subcontinent draws from its roots, but has depth and breadth. It’s an offering of dhal, a once before, never again secret.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to New Women New Yorkers—the first organization dedicated to empowering young immigrant women from all national origins in New York City. It offers them a safe space, a support network and the resources and opportunities to become role models and agents of change.
$60 tickets are available here.
