Screenwriter/Indian foodie
Kathy Gori has been cooking Indian food for 20 years. A screenwriter by trade, she works at home, so trading a hot keyboard for a hot stove is just a matter of a few steps. Kathy's obsession with Indian cooking began when her sister-in-law, who'd lived and worked in India, introduced her to the intricacies of the Indian kitchen. Thousands of hours and hundreds of dishes later, Kathy makes her own chutneys, grinds her own spices and enjoys exploring the various cuisines of the sub-continent. She has cooked for some of the Dalai Lama's monks, the Director of the Delhi Museum and President Clinton's California campaign staff. She's always learning and likes to share her knowledge and love of Indian cooking with others. In addition to her writing and cooking, Kathy was the voice of Rosemary the Telephone Operator in the series Hong Kong Phooey. She has voiced many films and commericals, winning a Cleo Award. She and her husband/writing partner Alan Berger live with their Siberian Husky Patsy in Sonoma. They are currently working on a project for producer Andrew Lazar (Get Smart) and most recently worked on the screenplay for Chaos Theory starring Ryan Reynolds.

We Have A Winner! And Some Thanksgiving Recipes

Rate: 1 Flag
   Happy Thanksgiving week. For those of you eating at relatives.. I feel you, and watch your blood pressure! For those of you who are cooking at home, I salute you! I'm not going to be cooking this Thanksgiving as my parents decided that we're all going out to a restaurant this holiday. This is also the time of year when I'd be trawling the cooking magazines looking at friends' blogs, and perusing  my cookbooks searching for something interesting to put on this very traditional table. Over the years I've come up with a lot of good stuff, so In the spirit of wishful cooking I thought I'd pass along some recipes that we've loved.
Buttermilk Biscuits


Pumpkin Pie

Brussels Sprouts

Flourless Chocolate Cake, Gluten Free

Indonesian Spice Cake

Cinnamon Spice Cupcakes, Vegan

Baby Roast Potatoes In The Bag

Pear and Arugula Salad
Baked Samosas

Spinach and Corn

And Now For the Winner!
   I held a drawing this morning to give one person a chance to try some vegan palm shortening courtesy of the folks at Tropical Traditions  . They were nice enough to let me sample their product which arrived just in time as I was doing some cooking for a friend who was on a medically enforced vegan diet. Believe me, it really came in handy.

The winner drawn by is Monique!

   I really like this shortening and I hope you do too, I'll be sending our winner Monique an email and will get this shortening right out to her just in time for holiday baking. Thanks to everybody who entered and to those of you celebrating, have a great Thanksgiving week.

  Coming up next..a dip in the cocktail pool and we go goat again. Follow along on Twitter @kathygori
