What you'll learn in this indian cooking class:

An exciting introduction to Bengali cuisine! This class begins with a warm welcome to Afsari’s home where she will greet you with a cup of ginger tea and a delicious homemade snack.

Menu for "Taste of" Workshop (Vegetarian):

Gobi Masala (Cauliflower and Potato in a Spiced Tomato and Coconut Sauce) 
Cauliflower florets, potatoes, and tomatoes sauteed with ginger, onion and coconut milk, seasoned with turmeric, chilli powder, and cumin, topped with fresh cilantro.

Plain Chapati (Flat Bread)
Circular flat bread made from scratch.

Raita
A cooling yogurt and cucumber side dish made with fresh mint, a touch of brown sugar, and seasoned with chile and cumin powders.

Cooking with Afsari: Bengali cuisine, a rich culinary tradition found in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent, is known for its aromatic spices and diverse range of fresh flavors.

When you meet Afsari, you will be delighted by her warmth and graciousness. Upon arrival, Afsari will serve her ginger spiced tea accompanied by a delicious snack of homemade samosas or pakoras along with a range of homemade chutneys, or chaat, a refreshing sweet, spicy, tangy mixture of crunchy puffed rice, chickpeas, fresh cilantro, yogurt, and tamarind sauce.

In her workshops, you will learn to create the complex, delicious flavors of Bengali cuisine, and you’ll learn the art of handling the myriad number of spices at its heart. Afsari is a master teacher, and her clear and supportive guidance will give you the confidence to successfully make her recipes at home. This is Indian food like you can’t get at any restaurant. At the end of the day you’ll go home newly inspired with all the recipes and a shopping guide to Afsari’s favorite food markets.

Food Allergies: This menu includes dairy and wheat.

All Taste Of workshops include a welcome snack and beverage, 1.5 hours of hands-on cooking instruction, a small meal, a recipe packet, and a shopping guide.

Hi Sherry! We currently don't have classes for March, sorry about that. You may save this class to your wish list so that if we'll have classes in March, we'll notify you when we post it here. Thanks!
Answer from Kym R. Verified Student
The "Taste Of" workshops are simply demos. They won't teach her to cook. Look at other longer courses.
