This Is TASTE 206: Maya Kaimal

The name Maya Kaimal may be familiar to many. She runs an amazing packaged foods company that sells delicious premade South Asian sauces and dals in more than 10,000 stores across the United States. She is grocery store royalty. But we wanted to have Maya on the show to talk about her time working at Saveur in the early 2000s and how she transitioned from that job to launching her eponymous food brand. We also talk about her excellent new cookbook, Indian Flavor Every Day. 

Also on the show, Aliza and Matt catch up about three things they are each into right now, including Razza, tropical fruit smoothies, Lexie Park of @eatnunchi, hop tea, and Adeena Sussman’s forthcoming fall book, Shabbat.
