    I had a blast in this course. Dolly is a master of her domain, a warm, confident cook who threw open her home and whipped up enough roti, curry, channah, etc., to feed an army. I grew up in a West Indian kitchen but learned so much more here than I ever thought possible: about how to cook delicious food with skill and flair. I mean, the woman got me to eat curried goat for the first time. It was sublime. She knows her stuff. Her love of cooking was obvious, and her enthusiasm was infectious. Oh, and I love her laugh. Best cooking class I've had so far.

Virtual Indian Cooking Classes 

If you can’t find an in-person Indian cooking class that works for you, you could try an online Indian cooking class. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the online format became very popular because people couldn’t learn in person, however, even as learning restrictions have ended, online learning remains popular because many people have discovered that they love its flexibility. You can take an online class from the comfort of your own home, or anywhere else you want; all you need is a computer and an internet connection. Just remember that with online learning, you usually have to supply your own materials.

If you want to take a virtual Indian cooking class, you’ll find a number of different options. The League of Kitchens runs a class called Indian Cooking Online w/ Yamini.
