A native of India, Nandita Godbole is the creative energy behind Curry Cravings ™, a niche culinary service. Inspired by her love of the food culture of Indian meals, she routinely teaches Indian cooking, chefs’ private dining events and hosts exclusive supper club dinners in metro Atlanta and Los Angeles, where she combines holistic eating principles with decadent dining.
Her books address the massive lacuna in the true appreciation of the Indian cuisine as a healthy and achievable culinary alternative. In previous lives, Godbole has been an ethno-botanist and a landscape architect; both of experiences have helped her embark on this journey to explore the connections between food, people, their stories and traditions.
She writes about finding the happy and content place between family, food, flavor, health and celebration -- all inherent to the Indian cuisine. She also blogs about her own life as a parent and her adventures in the kitchen at http://currycravingskitchen.blogspot.com/

As a third generation chef; and in carrying on her unmistakable knack for unveiling the secrets of the Indian cuisine, Nandita’s second book ‘Crack The Code’ complements ‘A Dozen Ways To Celebrate’. This book is based on the knowledge she acquired in her mothers’ kitchen, and is distilled from her grandfathers’ cooking strategy towards making perfect dishes. Nandita discloses these principles through this short book of secrets – the hitherto unspoken code for making any Indian dish successful.
