Rich aromatics filled the room as Akanksha Advani carefully prepared her display of Indian spices in a beautiful, wooden box. She prepared these spices before a counter full of colorful vegetables, naan bread, indian dishes and handmade, slow-burning oil candles. She placed the box amidst the vibrant display of food, all prepared for a special cover shoot for the Fall Moorhead Community Education Catalog. Akanksha’s passion for sharing and celebrating her Indian heritage through food shines in the Community Education classes she teaches. Every member that signs up for her classes knows how infectious her passion for Indian cooking is, not to mention how delicious it is.
