What You’ll Do
The chefs at House of Ayurveda believe that the path to a happier, healthier life starts in the kitchen. The benefits claimed by Ayurvedic cooking include everything from lower stress levels and fewer illnesses to improved circulation, and a House of Ayurveda chef explains how to use seasonal produce and fragrant herbs to capitalize on these benefits. You’ll watch as experienced chef Niki Jagad demonstrates the preparation of a four- to five-course vegetarian meal.
Learn the Ayurveda approach to cooking: using seasonal ingredients to prepare meals that bolster the body and mind.
The multicourse menu constantly changes, but examples of the chef’s recipes include rasam (a spiced tomato soup), potato coconut curry, herbed risotto, sprouted mung salad, and vegan milk fudge.
Eat, and Then Eat Again
Finish by eating the results of the lesson, and then take home any leftovers.
Ayurveda requests that you remove your shoes at the entrance (slippers will be provided, or you may bring your own). Older guests or those with health conditions may leave their shoes on.
House of Ayurveda
House of Ayurveda gives a Chicagoland home to Ayurveda—an ancient Indian discipline that claims to be the root of many alternative medicines and therapies, such as yoga. This modern healing center helps its visitors find health and well-being through one-on-one consultations as well as group activities including lectures, workshops, and classes on topics such as meditation. House of Ayurveda’s healing reach isn’t confined to a single location, however. Founder and director Vladimir Kazinets has practiced across the world, including hospitals in Nepal, India, and Europe.
