Authentic Indian Cooking Classes

Committed to the pursuit of authentic Indian home cooking for more than 20 years, I love to cook, eat, and teach Indian cuisine. My Indian cooking classes reflect both my passion for authentic Indian flavours and my love of fresh, straightforward food. In each class, I will clarify the complex world of Indian spices and show you how to use the right cooking techniques to get the best flavour from Indian ingredients. After only one class, you will be able to cook delicious Indian food at home!
