Book Banter S3 EP 115: Nandita Godbole Interview

Updated: May 13

Hello My Happy People,

Today I am thrilled to bring another amazing cookbook author to all of you. Nandita Godbole has reinvented herself many times. She has been a botanist and a landscape architect, but family influence finally won out as she followed in the footsteps of many others in her family and ventured into the kitchen with a new purpose.

Nowadays you can find Nandita either in the kitchen creating new and wonderful recipes or in her potter’s shed creating beautiful dishes to display her creations on. For many, being a personal chef and a potter would be enough to focus on, but Nandita found more creative outlets to explore.

To fulfill her creative side, she explores art in many forms including being an artist, a graphic designer, a poet, and an author with several published works which include fiction as well as several cookbooks. She also creates and sells spice blends from her website Curry Cravings™ Kitchen and according to her, she is an eternal dreamer.

Nandita writes books with the intention to bring greater awareness to the general public about traditional Indian food and show others just how easy it can be to create amazing, delicious, and healthy dishes. Just don’t let her website name fool you, you will not find a recipe for a “curry” in any of her cookbooks. What you will find is an amazing collection of recipes for kormas, stews, and saucy dishes which are often referred to as “curries” in many restaurants.

Nandita's work has brought her a lot of attention from numerous publications and broadcasters. She has appeared in Eater, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Food Network, Epicurious, and Healthline just to name a few. Now she is on Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt - Book Talk Podcast so she can share her knowledge with all of you. 

So don't wait, click the purple microphone above and go listen now!
