Hello from London!
of gray skies, great bar food and Ottolenghi
Short newsletter this week as I’m in London on vacation for spring break. Yes, we chose to go to a city that’s as cold as NYC! But we are hanging with old friends and enjoying every minute.
I’m always pleasantly surprised by how good the Indian food is here. Our plans include hitting up Dishoom (again!), trying NOPI and maybe ROVI (rabid Ottolenghi fan here) and some good old London pub food (samosas in bars? Sign me up!)
A couple of reminders below and see you next week! XO
If you are on Facebook, join my cookbook group here and share your pictures as you cook along from the book! You can also ask questions about recipes and I will help in any way I can.
The next v8well Cooking Club is on Wednesday, April 5th at 12pm ET. We will be making the Vegan (and gluten-free) Zucchini Bread. When the bread is in the oven, we will make my spicy avocado sauce so that Avocado Toast is ready for lunch right after! We’ll also chat about making croutons and breadcrumbs. The Zucchini Bread from my cookbook is a staple - I use it ALL over the book in tons of recipes so don’t miss this one!
Join me - it was so fun last time meeting you all and cooking together (you don’t have to cook or turn on your camera, lurkers welcome). I will be sharing tips and tricks and also doing a Q&A. Be sure to get your copy of The Vegetarian Reset beforehand. RSVP below.

Vibrant India - A loving and detailed compilation of South Indian home cooking, by Chitra Agrawal of Brooklyn Delhi (those chutneys are to die for). You will find several authentic recipes from the her mother’s hometown of Bangalore (also mine!) as well as the author’s Brooklyn spin on traditional recipes.
East: Vegan and Vegetarian Recipes from Bangalore to Beijing - an ode to Asian cooking by Meera Sodha. You’ll find unique recipes for noodles, rice and curries from India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Thailand and beyond. The recipes are vegetable-centric and there are plenty of ideas for tofu as well.
