Enjoy Diwali Sweets at the Bittersweet NYC Pop Up

Mithai & Indian Sweets from Bittersweet NYC

I have not been to India yet, but I get excited about Indian food, Indian colors, and, of course, Shahrukh Khan. So when I met Chef Surbhi Sahni and her company Bittersweet NYC at the Queens County Market last year, I was very happy to taste her wonderful baked goods made with the flavors of India.

This week, Chef Sahni is hosting a wonderful Bittersweet NYC Pop Up to celebrate the Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights! The pop up is being hosted by Chef Hemant Mathur of Haldi restaurant in Murray Hill. We can dine on Chef Mathur’s wonderful Indian dishes, many of which are based on old family recipes. Dessert will be a selection of Bittersweet’s lovely sweets:
