Explore the enticing flavors and textures of Indian cuisine with Chef Manjiri.

In this hands-on cooking class, you'll practice the skills and techniques to create a hearty meal inspired by traditional dishes of India. Transform familiar ingredients, like chicken, tomatoes and rice, into a beautiful spread that adds some spice to the everyday meal.

Begin with crunchy poppadom before building depth of flavor in a rich chicken curry paired with fluffy basmati rice and spiced vegetables. Next, learn how to craft a cooling corn raita, followed by a bright and creamy mango shrikhand seasoned with cardamom and saffron for a wonderfully sweet ending.

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

For my sister’s bachelorette, I got in contact with Chef Manjiri who very kindly taught us how to make several delicious Indian dishes at her home. Chef Manjiri was very prepared, and her process exceptionally streamlined. As a result, we were able to cook and pack up within the allotted time--which was great since we had another bachelorette event scheduled right after the cooking class. Also, half of us were vegetarian, and she was more than accommodating. Not only is Chef Manjiri well organized, she is also kind, sociable, and patient. She really helped cultivate a relaxing atmosphere, which I’d say is essential for novice cooks. I can’t speak highly enough about the class, and if you choose to take it, make sure to bring plenty of containers. You will walk out with lots of amazing food.
