I'm back after a brief illness-induced break, and while I'm not up to teaching yet, I am definitely here to celebrate! How much do YOU know about Diwali? I knew basically nothing but the name until I put this episode together. This is the final day of Diwali, and isn't it our good luck that they celebrate with food? Listen to learn about the holiday and its meanings, its means of celebration, and for some delicious recipes for sweets and savories from Indian cuisine. These recipes come from Nevada and New Jersey newspapers published in 2005 and 2006, and feature a story written by a woman whose childhood in India was steeped in the traditions of the Festival. I hope you enjoy the episode, and come back for the next one - Thanksgiving from 19th-century Boston! ALSO: The podcast is now on iHeartRadio. Listen from your Roku box!
