DAY 1: 6-Course Contemporary Indian Dinner Series
It's been almost a year since our last visit to Chef Sujan Sarkar's Baar Baar, so when we heard Chef Sarkar was cooking up a brand new 6-course menu for his favorite guinea pigs, we just couldn't say no! For those who don't remember, East Village’s Baar Baar (which means ‘again and again’) is in a class of its own. For one thing, it is New York’s first modern Indian gastro bar, challenging your preconceptions about every Indian restaurant you’ve ever eaten in. Chef Sarkar, named by the Times of India as India’s chef of the year for 2016, has a remarkable pedigree gained from his far-ranging global cooking experiences. He worked at the Michelin-starred ‘Galvin at Windows’ at London Park Lane, the ‘Automat and Almada’ at Mayfair London, and took over the helm at Olive Bar & Kitchen in New Delhi. Then, he opened Rooh in San Francisco, where he served his interpretation of new-age Indian cuisine. With Baar Baar, he is exploring new directions that reimagine one of the world’s great cuisines. We will be taking over the restaurant for this event, and Chef Sarkar will take your questions and regale you with stories of his journey through the world of food.
