Priya Krishna ’13 began her food writing career in a surprising place—FoCo (the Class of 1953 Commons dining hall).
As a student “obsessed with the idea of taking limited ingredients and jazzing them up into something cool,” Krishna started The Dartmouth’s “DDS Detective” column, sharing recipes accessible to students dealing with the limited ingredients and equipment of the College’s dining hall.
That concept turned into Krishna’s first cookbook, Ultimate Dining Hall Hacks, published in 2014. These days, Krishna is a regular writer for Bon Appétit and The New York Times. Her new cookbook, Indian-ish, is receiving rave reviews for its creative recipes and family-centric narrative.
The alumna will be doing an Instagram takeover on Friday at 12:15 p.m., when she’ll follow a recipe live from her new cookbook.
