Does the Apple Fall Very Far From the Tree?

Madhur Jaffrey is a celebrated actress, television and radio presenter, and author. Born in Delhi, she developed a passion for Indian cuisine as a young drama student in London. Her books, which include An Invitation to Indian Cooking, have influenced cooks throughout the western world.

Jaffrey’s presentation from MAD4 argues for food as the most ingestible form of culture. She talks about culinary traditions from around the world, and the idea that no matter where your life may take you, your “taste of home”—the things your mouth has been trained to eat since the moment you were born—never fade away.
