Back to the Kitchen, Ladies? The Day After International Women’s Day
A man I know asked me the other day if I know how to make chapatis.
He wasn’t asking because he wanted us to exchange recipes, or debate on whether dhaniain chapatis is a good idea (it brings out a nice flavour, you see, as do carrots).
He was asking in a “but you’re a woman” kind of way.
I wasn’t sure how to answer.
It was the week of International Women’s Day, you know, the day everyone remembers that women are important.
I did not want to be rude or presumptuous. Maybe he really did want to have a culinary conversation.
