Cookbook Giveaway: Masala Farm

By: Kirsten Vala

Just in time for March, when the weather is beginning to warm and daylight savings time is almost upon us, Masala Farm by Suvir Saran is a season-centric cookbook that will make you embrace springtime as you never have before. Suvir is the executive chef at Dévi in New York City, the only Indian food restaurant in the U.S. that has earned a Michelin Star; a chairperson of the Culinary Institute of America’s Asian Studies Program; and author of two other cookbooks, Indian Home Cooking and American Masala. In 2005, Suvir moved with his partner, Charlie, to a farm in upstate New York. Masala Farm captures their stories of farm living and great cooking.

Instead of traditional Indian dishes that you might expect, Masala Farm recipes include Western classics like risotto, burgers and banana pudding (Suvir is known for sprucing up Southern classics). With a little spice (or “masala”) and brilliant imagination, Suvir gives familiar comfort foods exciting new spins that are sure to liven up your meals.
