Completed the taste of the Punjab course recently. Very informative regarding Indian food, cooking technique and spices. The hands-on element was also very educational and we got to eat the result, which was delicious. Thoroughly recommend.

I am just a enthusiastic home cook - not an 'advanced' cook by any means - and the advanced course was just right. A superb experience. Rather than learning anything by rote, you are left with the knowledge to be able to go away and...More
