    NINA! It was great to read the review in NYT of your new book. CONGRATULATIONS!. It sounds fabulous. I intend to rush out and get it this week. .You must be thrilled.
    It’s so inspiring to know that the subject of immigrations, food and assimilating is book-worthy.
    I too have been compiling my experiences with food, eating and cooking for possible publication.
    THANKS so much!

    • Anita,
      Thank you for your interest in Biting Through the Skin: An Indian Kitchen in America’s Heartland! It sounds like you agree that food is wonderful lens to see culture. I hope you continue to compile your food stories–go girl!
