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 Winners For #indianfoodpalooza

Rate: 0 Flag
       One month ago my friends Prerna at Indian Simmer and Barbara at Creative Culinary  and I decided to get together and throw a month long Indian food extravaganza which we called #Indianfoodpalooza, because as everyone knows if you add palooza to anything it ups the fun quotient. We asked everyone to step out during the month of March and try their luck cooking an Indian dish. We provided some resources, suggestions, and of course prizes! Because you also cannot have a Palooza without prizes...,probably porta-potties too if I recall, but this is the internet and neither here and certainly not there.

       Well, March is gone April's here and it's now time to announce our winners. All the entries looked mouthwateringly delicious, and since licking the screens of our monitors didn't work, we chose our winners using
