Anjali Mansukhani

Anjali Mansukhani is a travel and food writer with a flair for the international. From a chilled Pisco sour in Patagonia to a savory lamb tagine in a Bedouin tent in Merzouga, Anjali sightsees with her stomach. She has devoured alpaca steaks, guinea pigs, and kudu burgers, and has eaten fish from all seven seas.

Having crisscrossed the globe from Mumbai to Manhattan, Anjali decided to call New York City home, where she regularly pounds the pavement and munches on Gotham’s best street cart foods: gyros, dumplings, tacos, and cupcakes.

When not on the prowl for cuisine, Anjali is cooking up creations in her own little NYC kitchen. She knows the difference between kefir and kaffir lime, frequently using them both along with 200 flavorful, aromatic spices — much to the dismay of her neighbors and the delight of her dinner guests.

Respectful of her Indian background, Anjali chose to have an arranged marriage, and has been happily sharing her dog-eared travel notes and forkfuls of food with her husband of 16 years. She is a graduate of the Hotel Institute of Management, Montreux, Switzerland.
