Hi Monica,

Good job!

Could we have a few words about Chef Sudhir Seth. And what restaurant is it ?

Great class, Monica! I did the Cumin Flavored Potatoes as one of the dishes for dinner tonight (listen carefully, and you'll hear the applause!). One question arose around the table - what would traditionally be served as a drink with this meal?

Hi Monica,

Good job!

Could we have a few words about Chef Sudhir Seth. And what restaurant is it ?

Ofcourse, the bio was in the announcements and here it is again:

Sudhir Seth, Chef/Owner, Heritage India, Bethesda Maryland

The incomparable talent of Sudhir Seth makes Heritage India shine in downtown Bethesda. Chef Sudhir has over 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry. He has personally catered to Queen Elizabeth (in Hyderabad, India) and to former President Bill Clinton at the Bombay Club in Washington DC. His fingers work magic with North Indian cuisine.

A graduate of Hotel Management from Delhi, India, Sudhir has held various chef positions in India and across the globe (Taj Hotel - Mumbai; President - Mumbai; Taj Coromandel in Chennai; Dubai Sheraton). In 1989 he was commissioned to open Bukhara in New York City and in Chicago. He was the executive Chef at the exclusive Bombay Club in Washington DC, and then opened Heritage India/DC as his first venture -- quoted by the Washington Post as "This is the area's best Indian cooking outside of a home kitchen: rich meats, luscious veggies, creamy lentils and warm and wonderful breads.

In addition to his culinary excellence, Sudhir has also assisted Jiggs Kalra, food journalist and master of haute cuisine Indian style, in the authoring of Kalra's best selling Indian cookbook: Prasad.

During Pooja or prayer ceremony meals, I believe, traditionally milk or yogurt based drinks are served. And ofcourse Indian style tea

Thanks for the info, I'd linked here from the Indian forum so I missed the announcements and the bios.

He looked familiar and after going through his bio I now know where I've seen him, in Bombay. Good going for him.

On Diwali day we hindus are vegetarian, and so glad that beer and scotch are vegetarian.
