She is TV's Sexiest Chef and she spices up Paper Magazine's latest Issue. If you've ever fantasized on what she would look like with only Spices on, then thank you Paper! See more of her after the cut...
Padma has a new book out titled The Encyclopedia of Spices and Herbs, where she offers insightful explanations and histories of each ingredient in addition to advice on how best to use them when cooking. "I want it to be something that's beautiful but also useful," Lakshmi says of her book. "Something that people can open up again and again and have in their kitchen on the shelf so they can use it and splatter it with food."
