The Geffen Stayhouse has done it again! They have created Bollywood Kitchen, a new virtual interactive streaming event. Past Stayhouse shows have focused on magic, illusions, and mystery…and they’ve all sold out. This time the subject is Indian cooking and our host is Sri Rao, noted author, filmmaker and screenwriter, who takes us on a personal interactive culinary journey by pairing Bollywood musicals with homemade Indian recipes.
The fun part is you can choose your level of participation and a special box will be delivered to you in advance including ingredients and recipe cards you will need to prepare your dinner at home. Chef’s Table ($175 per household), is the premier limited ticket that allows you to cook with Sri and ask questions via Zoom, receive an autographed cookbook, and the full Bollywood ingredient box. A Hollywood Foodie ($95) receives a streaming only ticket and the Bollywood Box. Lastly is Here for the Party ($40) includes a streaming only ticket and digital recipes (for those do it yourselfers). Full details on the menu including Mumbai Mule, the house cocktail, box contents, show dates et al can be found on their website. Sri is an excellent chef and an even better storyteller. As you cook, he will engage you with stories of his parents immigrating to America, their culinary traditions and the joy and nourishment that Bollywood musicals brought to his whole family.
