Review On Bollywood Kitchen (Los Angeles)


Ellen Dostal - Musicals in LA

Registered Critic


If you think this is going to be just another cooking show you'd be wrong. It's much more than that. It is an intimate, honest, and insightful immigrant story shared while preparing a meal, and an undeniable expression of love for family in all its wonderful messiness. It also celebrates the impact Bollywood films had on a young Indian boy growing up in Mechanicsburg, PA, at a time when his was the only Indian family in town.
