Thanks to everyone who joined us at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre for our Canada Day Indian Street Food demo- the weather was beautiful, the harbourfront was rockin’ and there were a sea of people in red and white!
I contemplated wearing my 2010 Olympic red & white mittens to show my Canada Day support…
…but was happy the weather is beautiful and mittens are not required for at least another four months!
We ate Pav Bhaji on Canada Day – the perfect ‘portable’ picnic food for an outdoor celebratation. I was so happy the crowd loved it even though nobody from the group had ever tried it before (except the ‘sound check guy’, who just returned from India).
I used my mother’s traditional tawa, a stainless steel skillet used in India by most street food vendors (wallahs).
Fred’s Bread (Pizza Bianca) was the perfect bread to use for this dish. There were many ‘mmmms’ from the crowd!
I’ll join the lovely Mary Luz Mejia again on August 13th for the Hot & Spicy Festival. This time I’m teaming up with Mexican pastry chef Elizabeth Rumebe of Amaranto Creations for an Indian-Mexican dessert fusion – our recipe testing session had delicious results!
Mary Luz and I were chatting yesterday about the similarities between Indian and Mexican cuisines and noted the parallels between the two cuisines is amazing. Join us in the conversation on August 13th and you can try our Indo-Mexican creation!
