    This looks and sounds wonderful – and perfect for beating the winter blues. Can’t wait until blood oranges are available here!

    Gah, you went to Berkeley?! So cool. One of the researchers I’d love to work for is at Cal; Kevin and I often discuss our dreams of doing a post-doc there. What a place to get inspired as an academic, you know? And in lifey things, like really good food :)

    This lassi is gorgeous, Linda! I’ve been eating blood oranges non-stop since I found them at the store last week. They’re my most favorite. I will definitely be making one of these!

    It’s funny how suddenly something triggers in our life making it one of the most memorable moments :) I love lassi and the fact that it can be made with any kind of fruit, well almost, this drink can never get boring.

    Gorgeous, Linda! I love the sound of this. Mango lassi is usually my favorite, too, along with rose (but I haven’t tried kiwi rose!) And I’ve certainly never tried blood orange cinnamon. Both yours and Phi’s are next on my list. Thank you for sharing this through beautiful photos (love the mix of dark and bright!) and lovely writing.

    I loved reading this – I had the SAME experience with Indian food when I went away to college (different college town, same eye opening /diverse experience).

    Also, this is obvious, but your photos are gorgeous and inspiring!

    You so are not alone on this one. I had the same experience with Indian food (and sushi!) when I was off at college. Except I’m pretty sure I didn’t try either until my sophomore year. (: Living in a super rural area of NY with pescetarians for parents certainly didn’t do much to expand my horizons outside of the standard (albeit mostly delicious) wholesome hippy dip meals. Albany, NY was basically one giant hole in the wall, so discovering all these tiny places with cheap, strange (and usually somewhat decent) cuisine was SO exciting for me.

    And the mango lassi — YES. I’ve missed them (and Indian food) so much since I moved to Burlington. I discovered a new vendor at the market a couple summers ago who sells baller samosas, a couple dishes, and mango lassis, so I indulge a lot in the summer. I love love love this wintery adaptation!

    P.S. I swear that any day now the Picardie Tumbler people are going to contact you and ask you to do some official product photography for them. You always make that glassware look so beautiful!

    Gorgeous! I had my first mango lassi recently and this sounds even better. I visited Berkeley for an afternoon last fall and it is such a bustling place. It was lunch time and students were everywhere. My husband and I had lunch at Gather which was amazing and we sat next to two people in a deep educational/political/environmental conversation. Love this post.
