One Day Indian Cooking Class

Overview

If you’ve ever wanted to get to grips with cooking healthy and nutritious Indian food the authentic way, this course is perfect for you.

There are so many restaurants across the world that claim to serve up the real thing, but very few come close to giving you a genuine taste of India. We’ll give you a hands-on experience hosted by experts in Indian cooking, using fresh ingredients, correct techniques and family recipes.

You’ll be creating and savouring a range of delicious chicken, fish, and vegetable dishes. You’ll cook up delicious dishes like you’ve never tasted before and blend exotic dressings and marinades. Welcome to the real India!

This cookery class is a real hands-on experience for those of you who want to get down to some spice blending and understanding the essence of Indian food. From Chili Chicken Kebabs, vegetable dishes, dressing and marinades, lamb samosas, this is the class for cookery enthusiasts.

You don’t need experience of cooking because the class teaches the entire process from start to finish for each dish. The key difference is the focus on spices; you don’t just learn how to but also why and when to use spices.  The fully hands on experience enables you to use all your senses to discover your palette and learn how to make a difference in taste.  It’s fast, furious and fun! Just bring along your enthusiasm and a stomach for lots of food.

FAQs

I can’t handle spicy food; will your classes be too hot for me?

Is lunch provided in this class?
Yes, lunch is provided (and cooked by you!). If you have any special dietary requirement please make those known to us at the time of your booking.

Is there parking available on site?
Yes, there is ample car parking available on site – free of charge.

Is there anything I need to bring to the class?
Yes, you will need to bring some tupperware/plastic containers (quantity will be specified in your booking confirmation letter sent via email) with you to take home some of the delicious recipes you will cook on the day. This will also be highlighted in your booking confirmation letter. Everything else, including an apron will be provided.

Will I have my own cooker and cook my own recipes?
Yes, you will be cooking on your own hob and will be making the recipes individually tailored to your personal palate and preference.

Can I bring a spectator with me?

I’m gluten intolerant, what classes can I attend?

Our Indian, Thai, Spanish Tapas and Nutritional classes can be easily altered and tailored to suit a gluten free diet. Please just ensure you make us aware of this at the time of booking.

What is the minimum age to attend a class?

Anyone from the age of 11+ can attend our cookery classes, if you’re not sure which class would be best please do call us on 01923 778880 so we can help.

I’m a complete beginner, what class should I do?

Our cookery classes are not based on skill as such; they are all hands on and taught by an expert chef who can lead you through the cooking processes so even a beginner should be fine on our classes. However, if you want to start at the very beginning, and develop an understanding of food hygiene, knife skills and safety in the kitchen, our beginner’s cookery class would be the one for you.

I am allergic to certain foods/ I have a special dietary requirement. Will this cause a problem?

We try our best to accommodate for special dietary requirements. Please notify us of your dietary requirements within 24 hours of booking.  Please email us cook@thecookingacademy.co.uk or call us on 01923 778880 if you would like to know whether your allergy can be accommodated on a particular course at least 28 days prior to the class. It is the customer’s responsibility to inform us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking for your health and well being.

I am an experienced cook, are all the courses suitable for me?

All courses are suitable for all levels as the classes are based more specifically on the cuisine rather than skill. The Chef will ensure that you have the assistance required to enjoy the day and really develop your cooking skills. If you are an experienced cook, you may particularly enjoy our Advanced classes. Please contact us if you would like further guidance.

Will I eat the food I make?

There will be an opportunity to eat all the dishes that you make. All participants sit down together for lunch to enjoy the food they have made in the morning, and will be able to take home the food you make in the afternoon to share with family or friends.

What should I wear/take with me to the course?

Please wear comfortable clothes and comfortable shoes (no flip-flops or open toed shoes). We will provide you with everything you need for the day, all we ask for you to bring are tupperware containers.

Do you have facilities to purchase equipment on the day?

You will be able to purchase a good selection of equipment that you use in our classes, as well as a variety of spices.

Will I have food left over to take home with me?

Yes! On most of our classes, you will be able to take a selection of the delicious food you have made home with you. This does not apply to the half day Indian class.
