Funny, My Kroeger's Doesn't Carry Cow Ghee

Padma Laksmi, author of Tangy Tart Hot & Sweet, stopped by this morning and described her philosophy of putting a global spin on classic American recipes.

Lakshmi tosses in exotic spices here and there (a gross oversimplification). But what if you don't live within reasonable driving distance of a specialty market? One of her favorite places to order up some huitlacoche or arame is Kalustayan's. You may not want to order anything, but it is fun to look.
