Great interview with Padma Lakshmi in Zagat! Thanks for representing India with pride! :-) "...The thing to remember about Indian food and Indian culture is that historically speaking, Indians do not have the habit of going out to eat. Historically there wasn’t a big restaurant culture there in the way there is in the West, other than going to the chaat stall for street food or the tiffin houses. For my grandfather’s generation, you only ate out if you were traveling to a foreign city and had no home to eat in. So it’s important to remember that Indian restaurant food is really different from Indian home cooking. I do think that there are great Indian restaurants, like Amma, and that the more people try Indian food, the better, in general terms. What I would like to see is other parts of India being highlighted for their food because Indian food is so varied. India is like Europe under one governmental umbrella — you could travel an hour by car and people are speaking a different language, praying to a different god, and eating different food. Like Gujarati food — it’s a type of cuisine not many people know about in the States but is wonderful and varied and flavorful and fresh. It’s especially great for people who are vegetarian but don’t want to feel like they are eating fake versions of meat. I would love to see more Gujarati restaurants or South Indian restaurants or Bengali restaurants where the food is not so heavy..."
