Jalsa by Veda
Veda Sankaran combines her Indian heritage and her Western Pennsylvanian upbringing to tell her personal story via her cooking. Jalsa by Veda is one part recipe website, one part cooking classes and popup dinners, and one part specialty spice blend. In this episode, we learn how Sankaran came to love cooking, the recipe that started her eponymous spice blend, and where she loves to shop for ingredients. She shares her takes on some very Pittsburgh foods and we talk about why she thinks cooking is important to so many people right now.
