This event will be hosted in-person at Book Passage's Ferry Building location. Please note, this is not a speaking event.


For this event, Vina Patel will be bringing: 

Chickpea Rolls: Chickpea, flour, yogurt, and turmeric are some of the main ingredients and are garnished with the tempering of mustard seeds, coconut, cilantro, and green chili. 

Handvo: is a baked vegetable dish made with rice and split lentils and corn, green peas, bottle guard, spices, and yogurt. In addition to being flavourful, it is delicious and healthy.

Both are very popular and loved by thousands. Gujarat is the KING of appetizers, and these appetizers are heart-healthy and a gift from Gujarat to the rest of the world. Every dish from my cookbook "From Gujarat With Love" offers very distinctive and palate-pleasing combinations of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors, and this is something you have never tried in any Indian restaurant before.

100 delicious and accessible vegetarian and vegan recipes from the Gujarat region of India, light and healthy yet packed with flavor.

Exploring authentic cuisine from the west coast of India, the recipes in this book adopt the region’s explosive combination of sweet, spicy, and sour flavors, and are captured visually by world-renowned photographer Jonathan Lovekin. Featuring easy recipes for classic small plates, popular street food, and everything in between, Vina Patel has made her recipes accessible for home-cooks everywhere, including those with dietary requirements. Brimming with suggestions for salads, appetizers, dals and soups, curries, breads and rice, drinks, and desserts, recipes include Garlic Burnt Rice, Smoky Eggplant Curry, Green Chickpea Salad, Spinach Chaat, Thin Layered Roti, Sapota Pudding, Rose Sorbet and many more.

Vina Patel was born in Gujarat, where she grew up watching her family and friends cook these dishes. She has since moved to California, and her passion for the food of her childhood has grown.
