This week, we’re excited to welcome KAUSAR AHMED to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories on cookbooks.
Kausar is a chef, educator, and food stylist. She was born in Karachi, Pakistan and her debut cookbook, The Karachi Kitchen: Classic and Contemporary Flavors of Pakistan, explores the flavors of her hometown. She is also the founder of Kitchen Craft, an organization that offers nutrition/cooking classes to women and youth in Karachi's high-risk communities.
In today’s show, we’re talking with Kausar about Karachi cuisine, her process to self-publishing her cookbook, and how she's leaning into her role as an educator.
Also in today’s show: We’re catching up with food writer and cookbook reviewer PAULA FORBES to discuss this fall’s seafood cookbooks.
And: We’re stopping by OMNIVORE BOOKS in San Francisco to chat with CELIA SACK.
