What You'll Do

South Asian cuisine in particular is known for its seamless blending of bold flavors and spices—such as chili, saffron, and coconut—into one perfectly seasoned dish. Chef and Mumbai native Kavita Chambery knows how to harmoniously blend these classic South Asian flavors, and she imparts her wisdom during a cooking workshop where you'll craft butter chicken, bhindi (okra), dal makhani (black lentils), and jeera (cumin) rice. After creating the authentic meal from organic and grass-fed ingredients, you and your classmates sit down and savor your homemade dishes.
