Upcoming Cooking Classes

Vegan Indian Cooking Classes

Tuesday, January 18th & Tuesday, January 25th

6:30-8:30 pm

The classes will include a brief introduction on various kinds of Indian cuisines and will specifically focus on North Indian cuisine. We will learn about the different spices used traditionally in the preparation of various authentic hearty winter dishes like the Chana Masala (spicy chickpeas- without the use of tomatoes), Cauliflower and Potato dry vegetable with spices, Saag "Paneer", Rajma (bean dish flavored with spices) along with a few side dishes. The classes will be interactive and hands on, depending on the availability of space and number of students.

Our Guest Teacher, Manisha Patel, has a BS in Chemistry with a Masters in Biochemistry from Bombay University. Childhood interest in food and how it interacts with human body led her to the Food Science program at Rutgers University. There, the primary focus of her Graduate research was Ayurveda. Her passion and keen interest in learning more and advocating good, healthy and vegetarian eating habits lead her to study at the Natural Kitchen Cooking School. Here is where she learned traditional cooking methods from other cultures, completely different from what she was exposed to in Bombay. She joyfully serves the community by touching people’s lives through healthy food prepared with love.
