Continuity and Change in Indian Food

Have you ever wondered what our ancestors ate 4,500 years ago? India has one of the most diverse cuisines in the world. But what we often don't realise is, that there is commonality and continuity in techniques, ingredients, and dishes that go back thousands of years.
In our LIVE discussion in Cuisines and Culture, we trace the story of food in the Indian subcontinent, starting with prehistoric times, and how it has evolved across different periods in history. Taking us on this culinary journey is Chicago-based author and culinary historian, Dr Colleen Taylor Sen, who has written bestselling books on the food history of the Indian subcontinent. Here's the recording of our LIVE session with Colleen Taylor Sen.
