Where: Mission Creek Kitchen, 550 Alabama (at Mariposa)
When: Sat., April 16, 2-4:30 p.m.
The rundown: The Starbucks chai latte you slurp like a soda from the jumbo cupholder in your Wrangler? Not exactly in line with Indian street-food tradition, though its a start. To take you deeper into chai understanding, the Chai Cart's Paawan Kothari is teaching a class tracing the drink's history and culture in India, different methods for making, and how to choose its main components, plus an overview of Indian street snacks (chaat). You'll sip chai and nibble on chaat, and walk with a shopping list and samples of Kotahri's teas to experiment with.
