This Migrations festival partner event has been cancelled. For any queries, please contact

Celebrated food writer, cookbook author, and actress Madhur Jaffrey lived through the Partition of India in 1947 as a young teenager, and witnessed firsthand the devastating effects of enforced migration. She arrived in the US alone on board the Queen Mary and soon became part of a vibrant, artistic, multicultural community. Jaffrey shares what America came to represent for her: free minds in a free nation, where those from different backgrounds could co-exist. Initially a culinary novice, she reflects on how Indian cuisine soon became a powerful means of connecting with her cultural roots. The evening includes a drinks reception and dinner that celebrates Indian culture in America.

Part of: Migrations: The Making of America

Tickets: $160
