BWW Review: BOLLYWOOD KITCHEN is Much More Than a Cooking Show BWW Review: BOLLYWOOD KITCHEN is Much More Than a Cooking Show
by Ellen Dostal on January 24, 2021

Even before the performance began, I was hooked. I couldn’t stop smelling the spices. Two of the three ticket levels for Geffen Playhouse’s world premiere of BOLLYWOOD KITCHEN include a Bollywood Box sent to your home. This beautifully designed box – easily a keepsake in and of itself –  contains recipe cards, a shopping list, specialty ingredients, and jars of the most aromatic spices you can imagine, that you’ll use in Sri Rao’s recipes. Ground cloves, cumin, coriander, and cinnamon, the whole experience begins long before you start cooking. It’s a perfect example of how food conjures memories just by the way it smells.
