I run several series of cookery workshops highlighting recipes from different parts of India. You can suggest what type of food you wish to learn – vegetarian, traditional, gourmet, mughlai, parsi, punjabi etc. The course covers lots of hands-on cooking.   I will only be the facilitator for the group’s activities and demonstrate each recipe giving you lots of fresh ideas and tips about planning, flavor, texture and taste while you will be carrying out all the cooking yourselves. You will learn some  easy to prepare, nutritious and impressive dishes for sophisticated everyday cooking highlighting recipes from different parts of India like dal (lentils), palak paneer (spinach with cottage cheese), biryani (rice), kebabs etc.

The courses run for maximum 4 hours and cover 4-5 recipes at a time that are easily adaptable to other vegetables, pulses, grains or even meat, fish and poultry, if you are cooking for friends and family at home. I will provide you with the printed recipes for each dish from the course. There will be an opportunity to eat all the dishes that you make. The group sits down together after each session to eat.

Under the present circumstances to combat corona virus,  we are maintaining the new norms of social distancing.   I am now-a-days conducting these workshops on a smaller scale, with groups of 3-4 people at most (in adherence to the applicable RIVM rules).   You can join together with your friends & family and form a group.  It seems more and more people enjoy and prefer to have their own personal tailor made session.  Do you wish to surprise someone with an original gift?  Give them something they’ll never forget! You can choose a date, time and also the style and menu perfect for your friends/family.

Most important:  my workshops are in a very relaxed atmosphere… it’s not a school or ‘hells’ kitchen, but it’s all about having fun with food!
