We had a great night with Chef Charuta. She was very knowledgeable and was very nice to chat with all night. The food was delicious and her instructions were hands on and a good balance on how much she helped out and let you create the meal. Definitely worth the time and money for this evening.

We took a Rustic Italian class with Chef Charuta. She was professional, knowledgeable, and very personable. She answered our questions, demonstrated culinary techniques and had us assist with various aspects of the meal preparation to make sure we understood about the process. Making the pasta from scratch was a highlight and she made sure that we thoroughly understood and participated in each step.
She plated our courses beautifully, and while we ate each one she cleaned up and prepped for the next part of the meal while she chatted with us. Thank you, Charuta! It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

Had a great experience with Chef Charuta's class. Lots of opportunity to participate and ask questions. Learned lots of tips and tricks of the trade. Also got to explore so many authentic spices and flavors. Got to prepare and enjoy a 4 course meal. Everything was delicious and can now try these recipes at home. Class size limited to 4 people so it was a comfortable learning environment.

Charuta is passionate and really informative. Got some great tips on how to make a complex dish like biryani. We made a lot more food than more classes, 5 different dishes and a couple sauces as well.
One thing that would be nice is if we could eat a little throughout instead of at the end. The class started at 6 and we didn't eat until 830 or so. I think the kababs could have been done first and eaten as an appetizer. It also would have been nice to have the recipes printed out for us to follow. This would make it easier to follow along and cook a little more independently. She did send us the ingredients after the class, but a more detailed recipe would be nice to have during the class.
I loved how intimate the setting was, just 2 couples. We had great discussions on cooking techniques and tricks. I would definitely do another class with Charuta!

I booked a class with Chef Charuta. She is really professional and I learned a lot of new things from her. The food tasted really good, definitely would recommend her class to anyone looking for a fun energetic cooking class with a lot to learn.
Chef Charuta began her culinary career in Mumbai and Bangalore, India, before taking on roles in bistros around Ontario. The hospitality skills she acquired through her education in hotel management have served her well through the years. She's also acted as a photographer for a spice start-up. With a specialty in authentic Indian dishes, Chef Charuta takes joy in creating food and helping others develop and hone their kitchen skills.
