Spice 101 - First stop Southern India

Medium (10-15 Guests)
I've been fortunate enough to cook in many kitchens and work with amazing chefs and home cooks from all around the world. I would like to welcome you to my kitchen to share some of the recipes that I have fallen in love with along the way. Global cuisine is exciting and should not be intimidating. I hope that this inspiration finds its way to your kitchen. Although that I've never traveled to Kerala, I've had the pleasure to learn some regional recipes from a well-known Chef and close friend.
