Delight the senses with a colorful and versatile Italian-inspired menu by Chef Raina.

In this interactive cooking class, Chef Raina will guide you as you incorporate the senses to explore textures and aromas while learning to balance flavors and spices. This adaptable menu can easily go from weekday meal prep to cozy date night dinner.

Begin with massaged kale and chickpea salad with fresh vegetables and bright lemon tahini dressing, followed by a palate-cleansing melon basil salad. For the main course, prepare a slow-cooked tomato basil sauce to serve with crisp eggplant Parmesan on a hearty hero roll. For dessert, enjoy a sweet and refreshing strawberry sorbet with a twist.

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

Chef Raina is so knowledgeable and so sweet, her husband was also extremely kind and super amiable, I had a great experience. They made the experience really laid back so I felt comfortable throughout the entire class. They answered all my questions and shared their experiences with me about Indian food and traveling around India. The class itself was hands on and super easy to follow, even for someone like me with little experience in Indian cuisine. Trying the spices was one of the highlights since a few of the spices were ones I hadn’t tasted before or simply did not know the name of. I left the class really appreciating the food I had just made and definitely appreciating all the spices used, the depth it gave the food, and the amount of work one has to do to make these yummy samosas. I will be taking more of her classes in the future!!
