Travel to southern India in this cooking class centered around a favorite regional ingredient: coconut.

Coconut is ubiquitous in southern Indian dishes. Learn how this ingredient is incorporated into a dish from the verdant southern Indian state of Kerala in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Kavitha.

Begin by mixing up a batch of appam, a type of pancake that is made with fermented rice batter and coconut. Then, prepare a vegetable stew with a coconut milk base accompanied by plenty of warm spices. To complete your meal, luxuriate in a true South Indian specialty: chicory coffee with milk and sugar.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

We had a great time cooking with Kavitha. She was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with. Kavitha was impressively organized and most of the ingredients were presliced/chopped so we could spend more time on actually cooking the meal, which was DELICIOUS!
