Indian Cooking Class

Join us to create and taste traditional Indian cuisine. Dishes in India incorporate a variety of spices, creating flavors and aromas to accompany everyday life and play a central role in culture and festivals. Meals include two to three aromatic main dishes accompanied by chutneys, pickles, rice and roti (bread) and, of course, desserts. Our instructor, Tam Gupta, was born in India and has been living in the United States for the last 8 years. Mother to two children, she loves to cook and play with spices to create the perfect dish. She hopes you will join her to share in her culture and learn how to use Indian spices to create unique and aromatic flavors.
