Learn to cook classic Bengali dishes with Ishita Saha, Kolkata-born Dubai resident and food blogger at ishitaunblogged. Ishita fed us generously during our podcast episode, Bengali Food 101 with Ishita, and has gladly extended this invitation to feast again in celebration of the Bengali festival, Durgotsav.

Pick her brains on Bengali culinary traditions and learn about authentic ingredients like mustard oil, the ubiquitous Bengali five-spice mix and of course Ilish.
