We'll gather at the kitchen table and I'll offer an orientation to the 5 main spices of Indian cooking. Then I will take you step by step through the various creations that I grew up cooking with my mom and am perfecting as an adult. This experience will be entirely participatory so together we will prepare ingredients and cook 3 dishes which we’ll enjoy together at the end. A sample menu would include a rice dish, a vegetable or lentil dish and an Indian bread. We can also mix in yogurt dishes, lentils, and meat if desired. The entire meal can easily be made vegetarian and vegan/gluten free if needed so please send me a note of any foods you'd rather avoid when you sign up. After we eat, there might be a quiz on the Indian spices!
I’m excited to share my heritage and passion with you, and to get to know each of you who participate. I hope you will enjoy your creations!
