About Me


Food culture is my passion. Everything I write seems to find its way there—including my new  novel, Consider the Feast. I am the author of Burnt Bread and Chutney: Growing Up Between Cultures, A Memoir of an Indian Jewish Girl  (Ballantine) which was a School Library Journal Winner: Best Adult Book for Young Adults, the SUNY Old Westbury First Year Experience book selection 2008, a Moment Magazine Staff Pick 2017, and a frequent book club choice. Additionally, my writing is included in W.W. Norton’s Mixed: An Anthology of Fiction on the Multiracial Experience, Moment Magazine, Kveller.com, Savory magazine, etc. With a MFA in Creative Writing and a BA in Literature and Anthropology, I spent time in the NYU Masters Program for Food Studies and have taught across the spectrum, including college creative writing and food writing. I have also spoken widely on diversity and writing, and been featured at numerous literary events across the U.S., as well as abroad.
