We’re so excited to tell stories that feel familiar, histories that we can reflect on together, and an exploration of South Asian cuisine that indigenizes our palette. This project hopes to create conversations around decolonizing what it means to be Desi. Its time to embrace the messiness of intersectionality. We’re often observed but the stories we tell take up room for the many dimensions that food added to our lives.
Whether it was the healing properties of ingredients, the history of that particular dish and its many adaptations, or in ways it was influential in historical events. For me, this blog is pieces of that past: grappling with culture shocks and powerful reclamations to celebrate for the future. We’re often observed but the stories we tell take up room for the many dimensions that food added to our lives.
We would love to see your creations and what you’ve learned! And if you’re a fellow desi looking to vent about those #diasporicfeels, we’d love that too! Tag us at #currystories
