Loved all the info about food in different regions of India and when/how to use certain spices. Food was delicious -- the chef and her recipes were easy to follow. Class ran over by 30 mins, though it was a pleasant class and I liked that we didn't feel rushed to finish.

That this ended up being a private lesson was unplanned, but made for a focused and fabulous class. A lovely introduction to spices and a little Indian history was a perfect overture and we went right to work. Chef was generous with her time and taught us valuable cooking skills. We had a lot of fun and created and ate a memorable Indian meal.

Chef Meghna was a wealth of knowledge with Indian food, spices, and history of it all. I don’t really cook so it was great to have her walk us through everything step by step. She was truly an amazing chef and I would definitely do another class with her in the future.

We had a fantastic experience with Chef Meghna. We went for a team building activity, and it was better than I even thought it would be. Chef Meghna taught us so much about Indian cuisine. We learned about all the spices, spice holder, different oils to cook in and why. It was very informative but also fascinating. AT the end we had this AMAZING food that I thought I could never make.

Megha was really great and informative. She did a nice job of balancing the cooking and the information so we enjoyed the evening and the company but at the same time we were learning and she was making sure we had everything we needed to cook the recipients at home. I think she mentioned that she is planning a street food CozyMeal option and when she does we’ll be the first to sign up. Would definitelt recommend her classes to anyone

This was my first time doing anything like this, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Meghna is super friendly, chatty, and easy going, and the group I was with were really enjoyable as well. I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of format but I enjoyed the fact that we were each given a recipe to "own" and we prepped and cooked it for the others while also learning about the other dishes as they were prepared. It was an easy pace and the food was delicious! Wish I could have eaten more!

Absolutely delicious, highly recommend her!!

Chef Meghna was absolutely fantastic. She provided upfront insights about regional cooking practices and spice usage prior to jumping into food preparation.

I enjoyed the time I spent with Chef Meghna. She was a great teacher & host. I loved the history of Indian cooking she shared with the class as well as technics that are used in Indian cooking.

Meet your chef
I have often been asked about my culinary background, to which I facetiously respond that I come from a culture that has been focused on food for the past five thousand years. Certainly, quite a resume! Coming from a heritage that has food as the epicenter of most occasions, I found myself yearning to replicate the scrumptious delicacies, be it from high end Indian restaurants in Mumbai to street food in smaller towns such as Lucknow.
