Ranji Smile: America’s First Celebrity Chef
Long before NYC had Danny Meyer, the charismatic chef J. Ranji Smile took the city by storm. Arriving in NYC in 1899, Smile introduced Indian cuisine to the well-to-do, ushering curry into America’s foodie lexicon. In this talk, we’ll explore the history of Indian cuisine in America, as well as the lasting legacy of Smile.
