Cooking Class - Paneer Workshop

Learn to make fresh, homemade paneer and how to integrate it into an authentic North Indian recipe.

Take the mystery out of paneer, the infamous Indian cheese and follow the steps to making this farmer’s cheese on your own. Chef Teena brings over 25 years of cooking to the table and will energize your team to prepare delicious Indian meals at home.

Start off with curdling whole milk into fresh paneer, then incorporate it into a light curry with peas and tomatoes. Round the meal off with cumin scented basmati rice and hot cup of masala chai tea. By the end of this class everyone will be able to confidently cook a classic Punjabi meal to impress at the next dinner party.

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

Chef Teena is a total pro. She and her team managed the chaos of the group cooking experience extremely well, and were just fantastic to work with. This was a very well-organized and super fun team-building experience. Plus the food was delicious. 11/10 would do this again.
