Nik Sharma is a food writer, photographer, cookbook author, recipe developer and James Beard Award Finalist based in Los Angeles, California. Originally from Bombay, India, Nik came to the US to study molecular genetics before taking the leap into food -- first with his popular blog A Brown Table. Since then, he's become a widely celebrated contributing writer and columnist, featured in The New York Times, Saveur and Food and Wine.  

Nik’s second cookbook, The Flavor Equation: The Science of Great Cooking, focuses on the science of flavor and how we interact with it. Released in October by Chronicle Books, it's already been named a Best Cookbook of Fall 2020 by The New York Times, Eater, Epicurious and more.


In this rodeo, you'll learn to make one of Nik's favorite dishes from The Flavor Equation:  Chickpea, Spinach and Potato "Samosa" Pie. From Nik:

"Samosas are individual hand pie–size creations that encase tasty fillings in an equally tasty crust. The choices for fillings are endless, including the popular spiced potatoes, spiced chickpeas, paneer, and ground lamb. I make this larger version that I’ve nicknamed the “samosa pie” whenever I want the flavor and texture of a samosa for dinner but I’m low on time. I’ve replaced the samosa pastry with store-bought phyllo sheets; they give the crust a delicate, paper-thin texture that crumbles with a crunch in every bite."

BONUS: We'll also be making Nik's signature Garam Masala spice blend -- featured in the Samosa Pie and a perfect pantry staple.
