April 19: The Table and the Kitchen

Vimala Rajendran, Curryblossom Café

Vimala Rajendran, who hosted one of “Lunch on the Lawn” meals last fall, will tell the story of her acclaimed Chapel Hill restaurant Vimala’s Curryblossom Café which she opened in 2010 with the support of her “beloved community” and drawing on her experience with the donation based community meals she hosted for many years in her home. Vimala will talk about the challenges, rewards, and victories along the path of finding new and creative ways to feed her community as she navigates operating a restaurant, employing local people at fair wages, sourcing ingredients from local farmers, and offering delicious food to everyone. “When Vimala cooks, everybody eats!” Vimala is an activist in grassroots media, international peace, stopping domestic violence, and welcoming refugees to the table.
