About the Show

In India, food is symbolic of Annapurna – the goddess of food and nourishment – and is an integral part of ritual and festival. Novice and aspiring chefs alike can join this cooking demonstration presented by award-winning Twin Cities chef Raghavan Iyer, who will discuss the interconnectedness of food, art, and ritual in India with Ragamala Dance Company’s co-artistic directors Ranee Ramaswamy and Aparna Ramaswamy. Cozy up to your computer, and learn about these dishes, or cook along with the group to make a meal in your own home!

  • Artistic expression rarely, if ever, occurs in a bubble. Artists exist in culture and community, and food is one aspect of culture and community. How do you imagine that food and dance can be interconnected?
