We had an awesome time! Highly recommend. Ruby made a custom menu to adapt to my family's food allergies. It was delicious and dishes we will add to our family recipes. We felt so at ease and welcome in her home. The conversation never stopped and we learned so much! I am hoping to book with her again. This was a gift to my daughters boyfriend for his birthday. We have decided togrther on gifts of time. This was a hit!

About This Deal

This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Join your host Ruby at her charming family home to learn to cook a modern Indian fusion meal or traditional Indian meal from recipes that she has created herself and learned from her mother. Your hands-on cooking class will last about 2 hours during which you will learn to cook three dishes from scratch. Some of the Mexican-Indian fusion dishes you might learn to cook are paneer "quesadillas" with tandoori onions and "crack" crema, Indian-spiced corn eloté, curried cauliflower with chimichurri or basmati rice-stuffed poblanos, and mango lassi. If you prefer a traditional Indian cooking class, please state your preference when making your booking. Your traditional Indian meal might include dishes such as shrimp or chicken biryani and raita, whole roasted tandoori style chicken, a spiced potato and cauliflower dish. Enjoy learning about the tips and techniques involved in Indian fusion (or traditional Indian) cooking before you sit down at the table to share the meal you helped prepare with your host Ruby.
