Reviews (5)

I recently attended the Comprehensive Indian Cookery Class, I would just like to start by saying what a fantastic two days I had.  The class contained a lot more one to one than I expected which I found very helpful. I learnt so much in proper authentic Indian cooking and to be taught by someone who is so lovely and patient was an absolute pleasure. I have recommended the cooking academy to many of my friends and look forward to visiting again to do the Indian street food cookery class.

“I’ve had a really good day with fun, fellow classmates enjoying great food and wine (I wasn’t expecting to be looked after quite so well). The food we cooked was actually even better than what I ate in India earlier this year. Thank you for sharing your techniques and tips – they will be very helpful and they will make cooking easier.”

“I recently attended your Indian cookery class and I wanted to let you how much I enjoyed it. I didn’t know what to expect but the whole day was enjoyable, friendly group and teacher, very approachable. Most impressive was the spice trail and the knowledge of the teacher, and the information was relayed in such a practical way so that we could act on it. I’ve been to India, and I have to say it is the most authentic food outside of India – thanks for keeping it real! Good luck.”

“A rave review – this cookery class is excellent for anyone who wants to learn to cook really good Indian Food. The food you learn to cook is so different to what you get in the restaurants and so well taught. I was actually quite surprised at the amount of dishes we covered in a one day class – it was non-stop but in a jovial way. Not only value for money, but also you just felt like you’d stumbled on something really great. I will be back for the Advanced Indian”

“I wanted to say thank you for making my cookery course such a success. I confess that I had been concerned that I might find myself a little out of my depth, but you quickly put me at ease and the day was really enjoyable. You explained everything so clearly and opened my eyes as to how misinformed many of us are about Indian food. I was particularly surprised by the lack of complicated ingredients and the ease of preparation, yet the dishes we made were full of flavour and colour. Thank you once again; I had a wonderful day.”

Faqs (16)

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

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.

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

In our cookery classes, you get to make your own food to suit your own palate, so although we provide guidelines, you can adapt each recipe to suit your taste, as spicy or as not spicy as you’d like.

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.

Our Indian, Thai, 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.

Alternatively, you can purchase an open voucher that can be redeemed against any class of the equivalent value.
