Learn the basics of vegetarian Indian cuisine in this interactive culinary experience with Chef Meir.
In this hands-on class with Chef Meir, you will learn the skills and techniques needed to prepare four vegetarian Indian recipes using both familiar and exotic ingredients as well as easy-to-master cooking techniques.
Some of the recipes you can look forward to adding to your culinary repertoire in this class with Chef Meir include handmade naan bread with a cool and tangy yogurt dip, vegetarian potato meatballs bathed in a creamy tomato gravy, delicately spiced spinach swimming with chunks of paneer cheese, and simple coconut ladoo for dessert.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
My partner and I took a private cooking class from Chef Meir at his residence. What fun we had and the food was divine! We will definitely be taking another class from Chef Meir soon!

We participated in Chef Meir’s Veg. Indian Cooking Course. If you’re looking for a cozy, hands on lesson, this is a wonderful way to spend your night! Chef Meir works alongside each member of your group, teaching you how to make a number of dishes. He guides you though technical skills and gives you tips and tricks for making the meal at home. The food was absolutely decadent. You will leave excited & confident to recreate at home. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this class to a friend.

Had a good time learning about new dishes with the Chef. Learned a lot of new techniques and methods.
He seemed a little unprepared, or somewhat overworked for the session. Still worked well with us, but it created a little bit of a rushed atmosphere.

This was a very unique and intimate experience. Chef Meir was friendly and accommodating. We shared the experience with another couple (and their wine), which made it even more fun. Would definitely do again!

This was a very good class, with a delicious selection of dishes. Chef Meir takes care to make sure it's a learning-by-doing experience and he is very responsive to requests regarding food allergies.

We had an amazing experience with Chef Meir. He kept us engaged throughout the process, and answered all the nitty-gritty questions I had for each of the dishes. My partner and I especially enjoyed learning the process of making paneer (Indian cheese) from scratch!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed making (and eating) the dishes in Chef Meir's Vegetarian Indian 101. We definitely left with more delicious recipes and translatable skills in the kitchen than what we arrived with. While we knew going in that we'd be preparing new dishes and sauces, the food we created from scratch that took us most by surprise was cheese for our Saag Paneer. I now know how to make cheese at home! How cool is that?
I am not a vegetarian, and would recommend this class regardless of your meat-eating preferences and restrictions. And, I think this opportunity would be fun with a group of friends who want to add to their culinary repertoire or simply enjoy a night-out outside of a bar.

My daughter and I took Indian Vegetarian 101. I'm not a vegetarian but I love Indian food. Chef Meir was extremely organized and prepared and kept the class on track. In addition to teaching several great recipes he provided numerous cooking suggestions that I never would have thought of or learned on my own. I will make these recipes again in the future. One suggestion to future participants: although Chef Meir provides containers for the leftovers, it may be worth bringing your own several containers since there could be a fair amount of leftovers (all delicious) from the class.

Chef Meir was great! This class was a birthday gift for my wife and we had a blast. Chef Meir is very knowledgeable about all aspects of cooking. The class was fun and very hands on. Totally worth it.

Chef Meir was down-to-earth and friendly. He made sure the class was hands-on, gave us chances to learn new techniques, and answered our questions. We had a lot of fun! The food was delicious, and I can't wait to try making it at home!

This is the second year my wife and I decide to do a Cozymeal night out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Chef Meir did not disappoint us. We had great evening, chopping it up, talking food and preparing a juicy chicken dinner that included a salad with an amazing vinaigrette and delicious onion parsnip soup. Chef Meir showed us how to take simple ingredients and cook up a delicious meal...and we had fun along the way. Thank you, again, Chef Meir and Cozymeal.
