Head Chef and co-owner Darshan Singh draws on more than two decades during twice-weekly classes. After an introduction to the food and culture of India, students learn to cook chicken in green curry with coconut milk, ginger, coriander, and the house curry blend; chana masala, a North Indian–style chickpea dish; and a healthy cucumber salad with cilantro. Flavor of India provides naan and a nonalcoholic drink for each student to enjoy with the full meal they have prepared by the end of the session. Students also receive copies of each recipe to take home. Classes take place on Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the location in West Hollywood.
Flavor of India
As diners are ushered through Flavor of India's resplendent gold-and-violet veranda, a cheerful greeting of "Namaste" sets the tone for an evening of monarch-level hospitality. The palace-like surroundings make suitable stage for a menu that draws on influence from all over India, attracting a high-profile clientele that includes Keanu Reeves, Jessica Alba, Nicolas Cage, and Curry Monster from Sesame Street. Vegetarian entrees stuff bellies with tofu, eggplant, and paneer, though servers also plate meat-laden curries and vindaloos. Chef and co-owner Darshan Singh also shares his culinary knowledge by leading do-it-yourself cooking classes for curry-smiths of all skill levels.
