Join us for a climate focused supper club with Soumya Sai Vanka, who will be making comforting ‘home-cooked’ dishes to show the versatility of the underused but climate friendly grain, millet.
Millet is an ancient grain that has been a staple in many traditional cuisines for centuries. It is highly nutritious, rich in fibre, and requires minimal water and resources for cultivation compared to conventional crops like rice and wheat. Millet enhances soil fertility and helps maintain groundwater levels, making it a valuable tool for sustainable agriculture. By opting for millet as an alternative, this will contribute to combating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, conserving water resources, and promoting biodiversity. Soumya’s vegetarian plant-based menu highlights millet’s possibilities, inspiring participants to adopt millet as their grain of choice.
Come and immerse yourself in a symphony of flavors inspired by the age-old tradition of “maa ke hath ka khana” (a meal cooked by a mother’s hands) at Soumya’s enchanting supper club. Step into her world of gastronomic delights, where she passionately crafts dishes that whisper tales of love and nostalgia. With a mischievous twinkle in her eye and an invitation on her lips, she beckons you to join her at “Kuch acha bana rahi hu, aajao khane” (meaning: I am cooking something nice and elaborate, come home to eat)—a phrase that resonates with the soul of India, where sharing food signifies an abundance of love.
In the realm of Soumya’s culinary creations, each dish is infused with a homely touch, a dash of quirkiness, and a whole lot of love. Are you ready to embark on this flavorsome journey and experience the true essence of “home-cooked”?
