Seaside 2010: Writers Workshopping with Kim Sunee

Seaside 2010: Writers Workshopping with Kim Sunee

The 2010 Seaside Floating Island Writers’ Workshop started off in delicious fashion when attendees began arriving Saturday, May 29. Among them, chef Suvir Saran of New York City’s restaurant Devi and his partner Charlie Burd came to run cooking demonstrations and sign his fabulous cookbooks (Indian Home Cooking and American Masala) at Sundog Books.

A few hours after arriving, Charlie and I headed off to find some fresh Gulf shrimp from Goatfeather’s Seafood. Soon Kim, Suvir, and a few other attendees (particularly Rose) began toasting, grinding, zesting, chopping, juicing and sauteing a beautiful supper of Goan shrimp, basmati rice, and a mixed yogurt raita.

Prosecco flowed freely during a dinner conversation that weaved from our beautiful Emerald Coast surroundings, to salty Indian mango pickles, finishing with a how-to on signing a memoir deal. Afterward, we adjourned and went on a starlit walk down the beach. In all, a wonderful start to the 2010 Seaside, Florida workshop.

  1. Eyes down while chopping Rose! Yikes! :-)
    I know Suvir was fascinating…but I’d hate to see you lose a finger girl!
