This is not the very first time Krishna has followed into her mother’s culinary footsteps. She’s appeared on Padma’s various cooking collection. Krishna popped up in a Hanukkah-themed episode of Style the Nation, the 53-year-old’s award-profitable journey collection, supplied that Krishna’s father, Adam Dell, is Jewish.

And so to do an episode about Ashkenazi Jews in New York and fake that I have no connection to it would’ve been disingenuous,” Lakshmi explained to Folks in 2021. “It designed excellent sense for her to be there at that Hanukkah evening meal. And so which is why she’s there in that sequence.”

“My daughter preserving me humble,” Lakshmi wrote around the movie.
