What is the first meal you ever cooked?
My first cooking memory was rolling out dough in my mom’s kitchen for sweet Indian steamed dumplings. We were an assembly line — someone rolling, someone filling, and so on. My mom was at the stove orchestrating over us.

I will never eat:
Anything slimy, like snails or frog legs.

Who would you love to have over for dinner?
My first cookbook author crush, Paula Wolfert (but I would be super intimidated!)

What’s your favorite restaurant and what do you order there?
There are many, but if I had to choose, I’d choose simple pleasures, like Katz’s Deli’s pastrami on rye with mustard and Taim’s green falafel, both in New York City. Blue Hill at Stone Barns is on my bucket list.
