The Granny Who Gets Paid To Teach Family Recipes
As millennial interest in cooking declines, one cooking school of immigrant grannies is keeping family recipes alive – and getting paid to do it.
Yamini Joshi, 66, is an Indian immigrant from Mumbai, now living in New York City. By day, she works at a jewellery company in Manhattan; at least three times per month, on weekends, she instructs a group of students – often millennials – on how to prepare her family recipes. It is what she thinks of as an extended family meal.
