Author of Cooking Together: A Vegetarian Co-op Cookbook Shanta Nimbark Sacharoff will read from her cookbook and talk about why we share food and food preparation to build community. She will include ideas for kids, working adults and seniors to engage together in the kitchen.

Condiments being important elements in the cuisine of India, Shanta will demonstrate how to prepare two types of chutneys. She will explain what culinary herbs and spices go into the chutneys and how they enhance flavors. Recipes for the chutneys will be distributed. Chutneys make delicious holiday gifts.

Shanta will conclude with a Q&A session while participants sample the chutneys with crackers and sip homemade chai.
