Lopate and Locavores: Madhur Jaffrey

7:00 PM

Going out to a restaurant can be a way of traveling around the world without setting foot on a plane. But do you ever get the feeling that, even here in New York where we have access to every cuisine imaginable, they're only serving up Americanized versions of what you’d find abroad? 

This season, Lopate and Locavores: Eating Around the World invites experts to share the authentic dishes from their countries that you wouldn't find in a restaurant.

No one knows Indian food better than Madhur Jaffrey. For more than 40 years, the “godmother of Indian cooking” (The Independent on Sunday) has introduced Western home cooks to the vibrant cuisines of her homeland. For this final installment of our annual food series, Jaffrey introduces us to some of her favorite specialties of India. Join us for a lively conversation, cooking demonstration and Q&A. Hosted by WNYC's Leonard Lopate, a three-time James Beard Award winner.

You can also watch a live video stream beginning 7pm ET:
