Season: Book Signing with Nik Sharma

  • Southern Food & Beverage Museum 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)

Join the Southern Food & Beverage Museum to welcome author Nik Sharma as he signs his new cookbook Season: Big Flavors, Beautiful Food.

Enjoy a conversation between Nik and fellow author Scott Hocker, discussing the writing of the book, the process of developing recipes, and more.

Season is the story of an immigrant spoken through food and photography and a collection of flavors from Nik Sharma’s two worlds—India and America. There are few books that offer home cooks a new way to cook and to think about flavor-and fewer that do it with the clarity and warmth of Nik Sharma's Season.

This event is presented in partnership with the John & Bonnie Boyd Hospitality & Culinary Library and is free with museum admission. Those who purchase a copy of Season in the SoFAB Pantry will receive 1 complimentary admission per book. Program is free with museum admission.
