I highly recommend a cooking class with Chef Parsati! We did a class with her to celebrate a birthday and it was wonderful. Chef Parsati is a wealth of knowledge and taught us delicious recipes, cooking techniques, and answered our many questions. She was also extremely careful and thoughtful on hygiene and safety. Food was delicious and it was a very memorable experience!

My son gave me a cooking class with Chef Parsati for my 66th birthday, and had kept the event/destination a surprise to me -- the two of us comprised her whole class. The experience was relaxed, informative, fun, and culminated with our enjoying the products of our labor. (Chef Parsati graciously called herself our "sous chef", letting us do all the key steps beyond her orderly preparation setting out the ingredients, ready for slicing, chopping, etc.) She made us feel at home immediately, and was warm and friendly throughout. Her kitchen and dining area were scrupulously clean, and she observed COVID protocols out of an abundance of caution, e.g. remaining masked throughout though all of us were fully vaccinated. Her expertise with North Indian cuisine was obvious. She had useful tips, e.g. preferred cooking oils, how to sequence the ingredients, and how to time the cooking. She showed how to share several ingredients across dishes in the menu, yielding distinct tastes by virtue of different proportions and seasonings. Her explanations were clear and she patiently answered all our questions. She also was flexible in adapting all the recipes to avoid ingredients my son is allergic to, e.g. replacing lentils with tofu in the Dal. All the dishes were delicious, even the tofu, which I normally find unexciting. My favorite was the Kebabs (pictured), which appeared flame-grilled, though we actually fried them. We had ample time at the end to eat our fill and pack leftovers. I was delighted by the experience and enthusiastically recommend this class!
