What we say

Mrs. Dabhi is one of this country’s true food heroes. A giant of the Indian vegetarian scene who has won every relevant award, most of them many times over. Not only does she serve wonderful food and write wonderful books, but she goes out and preaches the message about how properly sourced, lovingly prepared vegetarian food can change the world. She goes into primary schools to teach cooking, she takes her customers to India to educate them, she has launched a cookery school, and she raises money to support small schools in remote areas of India and Nepal. Hansa Dabhi, we bow down before you.
