The New York Times Travel Show announced that award-winning food writer and television host Padma Lakshmi will headline its annual travel industry event. Lakshmi will discuss travel, food, and her best-selling book, Love, Loss, and What We Ate: A Memoir.

Ms. Lakshmi established herself as a food expert early in her career, having hosted two successful cooking shows and writing the best-selling Easy Exotic, which won the “Best First Book” award at the 1999 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards; and later, her second cookbook, Tangy, Tart, Hot, and Sweet. For the Food Network, Lakshmi hosted “Padma’s Passport,” where she cooked diverse cuisine from around the world and later, “Planet Food,” a documentary series on the Food Network and broadcasted worldwide on the Discovery Channel. Ms. Lakshmi has been the host of Bravo’s television competition series “Top Chef” since 2006 and was nominated for an Emmy Award for her role as host and judge for the program in 2009.
