Overview
More
Food and cooking are integral to understanding Indian culture. Susan will teach you some Indian dishes, but also more importantly give some cultural understanding of India and how it relates to food. For instance, what it was like for Susan to live in a joint family, mother and daughter in law dynamics in the kitchen, the importance of round roti, etc. Learn to make chai and 3 vegetarian dishes in this 2.5 hour class. Pick any 3 dishes from this list: Aloo-gobi (potatoes and cauliflower) Baingan Ka Bertha (Mashed aubergine) Shahi Paneer Daal (lentils) Bindi (Okra) Chapatti (roti) Paratha Mango Chutney

Susan's chais are extraordinary. Tried many of them and all were heartfully crafted, served with a huge smile and delicious fresh taste. From the classic masala chai to even rose petals tea, all were on point (I could always taste her ayurvedic touch). Susan's chais...More

I had a good time taking some kind of a quiz test that would reveal my current 'dosha's'. Good tea and good talks! I did not try her cooking classes but i am sure she knows what she is doing there too. Thanks Susan.

The cooking class was very interesting and fun. Susan was very calm and explained the basics of indian cooking. I feel confident now to cook indian dishes by myself. I highly recommend the cooking class.
