During these unusual times I am also delivering online Indian cookery sessions! Gift vouchers are available  – these are valid until end of 2021. Add a spice kit containing a gift box of 3 special home made spice rubs (these come with 2 curry recipes!) and 12 pouches of spice powders and ingredients like dry fenugreek and hing, home roasted coriander and cumin powders to name some to the gift voucher and your curry lover is all sorted for the online class and beyond  – all they will need to source are the perishable ingredients like vegetables and meat. To find out about the spice kits please click here.

Participants, in small virtual groups, will learn to prepare healthy, simple yet delicious Indian dishes from the comfort of their homes – from scratch, in an interactive cook along, to enjoy later with their family. These dishes are special – chosen for their authenticity and simplicity, using easy to source ingredients.

With small group classes ( maximum of 6-8 participants per session), the aim is to recreate a personalised experience that they would get in my face to face sessions. By the end of a class, they will have an authentic home cooked and freshly prepared dish to enjoy with their loved ones which they will be able to recreate over and over!

Bespoke online sessions to celebrate special occasions for a group of friends, families across multiple households and locations, Children’s birthday workshops as well as Corporate workshops for innovative team building sessions and dos can be organised. Please contact me for more details.

My pilot online fish curry session held on 24 April 2020 was a huge success! Sharing this lovely review from one of my participants who joined the online session

How will the online class be held?

Via ZOOM – free and easy to download, this is an online conference calling programme which uses video and audio. Not only will I be able to see and hear each participant and vice versa, but they will be able to watch a close up of my dishes and cook along with me. All the participants will be able to ask questions, make comments during the cook along, talk to each other, show me how their dishes are coming along at various stages of the cook. However they will also have the option to mute their audio and hide their video should they prefer.

What will the participants need to take part?

The participants will need to source the ingredients, details of which (along with a choice of any substitutes) will be sent to them well in advance along with detailed joining instructions. I will also share the details of the equipment required (mostly a wok or pan for cooking curries, rolling pin if making an Indian bread)

Participants can also preorder my special spice kits that contain all the spices and dry ingredients they will need for the cooking lesson – all they will need to source are the perusable ingredients like the meat and vegetables. There will be enough spices to help them recreate the dish a few more times. Included will be my home made garam masala, home roasted and ground cumin and coriander powder – to help add a real depth of flavour to the dishes!
