You might remember her cardamom-pistachio Swiss rolls from TheGreat British Baking Show, or the orange savarin that blew Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood away. But in her new book, Chetna Makan is moving from all the butter and sugar onto another topic: Healthy Indian. We talked about daily baking habits, canned chickpeas, and why her black lentil recipe is better than her mom’s. She also told the story of a recent Great British Baking Show reunion at a wedding that involved not one, but 10 cakes.
Later on the show, we grill TASTE contributor Max Falkowitz with a hard-hitting question about hot dogs.
