Making Chai & Finding Home

Often times I find inspiration in the smallest of moments. Many of these moments happen when I am making chai. On weekends, I share them with my sweet Samara and Rana, making chai as I have done so many times since they were little, in either the early morning light or warm afternoon glow of the sun. And on Tuesdays, I share them with Chef Juan and the ancestors who guide and connect us. Making chai takes me back to India and a deep sense of home, not as a place, but a feeling.

Join me tomorrow and every Tuesday for homemade chai here at the Pfister in the lobby from 10am – noon.
