If you would like to treat a loved one to an intimate and homely Indian cooking experience, I offer personalised gift vouchers of my cookery classes and courses. The vouchers are personalised with their name and occasion (birthdays, anniversary, christmas)
SINGLE CLASS VOUCHERS:
I offer three types of vouchers for a single class:
a) vouchers for a group Indian cookery class: The group classes run through out the year. Priced at £80 per person, the group classes are small in size with no more than 4 participants per session. There is food tasting throughout with enough left over to pack to take home. My most popular group classes are the Family Secrets class where we learn to prepare a starter/ side dish, a main course curry and accompaniments such as parathas (indian naan bread). For those who love an array of delicious Indian starters and dips of all types, the Indian Street Food Class and the Indian Inspired BBQ would be a great fit. Priced at £85 per person. Details can be viewed by clicking this link: Classes & Prices
b) vouchers for a bespoke private group session: these are apt for families and friends that would like to spend time together in a cosy home environment, learning my special family recipes. The bespoke session offers flexibility with the dates and the menu. It is created with the requirements of the group in mind. Priced at £95 per head for a group of 2 people; £90 per head for a group of 3 people; £85 per head for a group of 4 people.
c) vouchers for a private 1:1 session: these are customised to suit the individual. The menu is handpicked for the participant. The date is driven by their availability. Priced at £120
The above vouchers are valid for 8 months from the date of purchase or from christmas day (if purchased as a christmas voucher)
VOUCHERS FOR A COURSE:
I offer two types of courses:
a) The intermediate level course consists of two sessions. The 1st session is a group class (group classes run through out the year offering multiple dates to choose from). The 2nd one is a private 1:1 session where the participant masters technical dishes such as dum cooked biryanis, South Indian dosas, Xacuti based curries to name a few dishes with an introduction to a whole new world of niche Indian spices and techniques. The private class is designed with the individual in mind, based on their likes/ dislikes. The price of a voucher for an intermediate course is £180
b) The advanced level course consists of 3 sessions. It offers 2 group classes that run on multiple dates throughout the year and 1 private 1:1 session. Each group class offers a different menu of dishes to learn. The private 1:1 session offers a set of complicated dishes and new techniques with an introduction to a variety of complex spices. The participants would learn to master complex dishes such as lamb dum biryanis, xacuti based curries, curries prepared with different techniques and unique ingredient combinations, South Indian lentil based dosas to name some. The private sessions are very personalised to suit the participants in terms of their availability and their food likes and dislikes. The menu is handpicked with them in mind. Price of an advanced course voucher is £256
The above vouchers are valid for 1 year from the date of purchase or from christmas day (if purchased as a christmas voucher)
GIFT BAGS OF HOME ROASTED AND GROUND SPICES
I also offer beautifully packaged gift bags containing a trio of my home made spice blends (my family recipe of garam masala, chickpea curry powder and a unique curry powder). These 30g bottles come with cooking tips for guidance and links to specific recipes on the website that champion these spice blends. The gift bag can be added on to the gift voucher to enhance the gift experience. The bag can be posted to you (at a small charge) or collected from my home. It can also be handed over to the participant on the day of their cookery session. These are priced at £15 per bag. You can also purchase individual bottles at £5 a bottle. These make for lovely Xmas stocking fillers!
SPICE TINS COMPLETE WITH A MEDLEY OF KEY SPICE POWDERS
This is a great gift idea for those who are serious about Indian cooking and are likely to cook an Indian meal regularly. I decided to offer filled up spice tins with the spices we use in our class instead of empty ones to help and encourage participants to recreate their newly acquired Indian cookery skills as quickly as possible after my session. Not only have these been very popular with my existing participants, a number of whom have purchased these after a session, but spice tins have also enhanced the gift experience alongside a cookery class/ course gift voucher! Priced between £28 to £30 a tin based on the type (see through glass top or metal top). The tin can be collected from my home. If you are unable to collect it, the spice tin can also be handed over to the participant on the day of their cookery session.
