I was at a loss for words, when I received a message and an email from Nisid Hijari. A member of the Bloomberg editorial board, Nisid was hoping to talk to me for a project Bloomberg Opinion was doing on innovative businesses started during the pandemic. As luck would have it, Nisid was living in Maine during the pandemic and heard about my sauce launch.
I loved hearing his story about being born in Mumbai and moving to Seattle as an infant. If you get a chance, check out his interview with Charlie Rose on his book, “Midnight’s Furies: The Deadly Legacy of India’s Partition,” winner of the 2016 Colby Award. He’s moving to Japan this fall with his talented wife and writer, Melinda Page. I can’t wait to hear all about his next chapter.
I made him a plate of delicious handcrafted Goa Caldine loaded with @pinkhamsgourmetmarket giant scallops and shrimp because it’s the least I could do! More than anything my mother would have been so proud because I made sure he was fed her signature Goa Caldine. Stay tuned the story will be out soon.
