Recipe Exchange

Nithya and I just hosted a very delicious event – the very first YRB Recipe Exchange. The idea for the exchange came from our February trip to Tahoe when we found that a good number of the people at the lab are foodies. Since we all cook very different kinds of food, we decided to have a recipe exchange where we would be able to not only eat various dishes but also learn how they were prepared.

For this event we had Ryan, Yuki, Ayman, Carrie, Nithya and myself meeting in the afternoon to cook a wide variety of dishes (mostly) from scratch before Jeannie joined us for the consumption part of the evening. I’ve posted a bunch of photographs as a Flickr Set but the main dishes were:

Bread (Carrie)

Mango Salsa (Ayman)

Masala Vada (Nithya)
Masala Vadai

Chicken and Paneer Tikka (Me)


Pepper crusted, maple soy infused salmon (Ayman)
