Make a Meal of Samosas and Chutney with a Monk-Turned-Chef - New York: Center your chakra with a fully conscientious dinner made in the intimacy of the chef’s East Village home.

What You'll Do

The chef then guides you through making your own vegetarian samosas and chutneys, and everyone sits down for a healthy Indian dinner.

Your Host

Doyal GaurangaDoyal Gauranga

Raised in California in a big Italian family, Doyal Guaranga always loved food. But it was as a monk that Doyal began to understand how much diet impacts a person's health—both physically and mentally—as he learned to consciously cook for his brothers at the monastery before traveling the world to vastly expanded his culinary and spiritual education. In the summer of 2013, Doyal decided to transition out of monastic life, but he hasn't given up his teachings: the former monk cofounded a nonprofit organization dedicated to community development, where Doyal can learn from and share his knowledge with others.

Where You'll Meet

The event will be held at an East Village residence. The exact address will be shared after purchase.
