What You’ll Do
Just as infants naturally learn languages in the home, there are few places better for picking up new cooking skills than in a cozy kitchen. Join veteran chef and native of Bangladesh Afsari Jahan in her home, where you’ll learn how to prepare flavor-packed North Indian dishes. After Asfari touches on the cultural importance of each dish and the unique spices used to create it, you’ll head into the kitchen to prepare a delicious four-course dinner.
Mingle and Enjoy a Cup of Tea
As your fellow guests arrive, you’ll sip on a cup of ginger or chai masala tea while Asfari details the menu.
Cook a North Indian Meal
Prepare and dig into delicacies such as vegetable samosas, chicken tikka masala or palek paneer, and bread.
Create These Dishes at Home
Afsari encourages guests to take pictures and notes, and you’ll head home with printed copies of each recipe.
When Afsari Jahan moved from Bangladesh to the United States 20 years ago, she quickly became homesick for the food. Working from her mother’s recipes, she threw herself into cooking Bangladeshi cuisine to maintain a connection with her homeland, soon venturing into catering with a focus on North Indian cuisine. Today she continues to share her skills with the world, working at the nonprofit Restaurant Opportunity Center and Émigré Gourmet, a catering and cooking-class organization she helped found.
