We recently had the pleasure of experiencing an authentic Indian cookery Classes with Garam Masala Spice Kitchen, a unique cooking experience that comes to your home, teaches you the secrets to cooking amazing curries and leaves you to eat what has to be one of the best curry you`ve have ever eaten. Guaranteed!
Hari, the founder of Garam Masala, has cooking in her blood. Her mother taught her how to cook curry the original way and she has stuck to these quite incredible recipes.
How it works:
Hari sends you a list of recipes and you choose a starter, main and side dishes that you want to cook and choose a date for your class. Hari rocks up with all the cooking equipment and food. You literally have to open your ears and let Hari share her extraordinary knowledge with you.
Hari encourages you to get stuck in with all the preparation, gives you a fascinating spice master class half way through and then teaches you the true secrets that go into making a stunning curry. What’s more Hari does all the washing up so your kitchen is left as was before she arrived leaving you to get stuck into your creation.
To be honest, I thought that I knew how to cook a curry, it is my favourite dish and I cook at least one a week, however I have seen the light! Just a couple of the key tips I learnt… caramelise the onions, add the right spices at the appropriate times… the list goes on.
In terms of cost, the experience is extremely good value at around £50 per head, also remember that you don`t have to buy the food and you are left with something that will make your local takeaway look like amateurs! The experience last around 2 – 3 hours dependent upon what sort of class you decide to take and you are left with enough food for 2 portions per person in the class so lots of food to invite people round for!
If you love curry or authentic Indian food (or know someone who does) then I can`t recommend this experience enough. It would certainly make an amazing gift idea for that hard to buy for budding chef or a unique dinner party experience where you get your guests to do the cooking with Hari!
Thank you Hari, loved it!
