In my class I uphold the ancient Hindu belief “Atithi Devo Bhava” which means “guests are equivalent to God”.

My classes are held at my humble home in Te Atatu Peninsula. The five-hour journey with me will give you a glimpse into a real Indian home, culture, tradition, hospitality, sumptuous food and very heartwarming story of why we came to New Zealand and why I started teaching. 

This multi-sensory experience is designed to inspire, educate and make you have a newfound love and respect towards food. It’s a great night with friends and a feast for the five senses.

It is a great opportunity to re-ignite your love for spices and learn about healthy Indian vegetarian cooking!  The class aims to transport you to India.

My classes are combination of doing, watching and learning.  Together we will create six dishes followed by a banquet which we will feast together.  You will be surprised as to how much will be there for you take home for your loved ones!

The class sizes are small and intimate maximum eight.  I am very happy to accommodate if you have specific food needs.  Groups welcome, menu is customizable if you have certain dishes you would like to learn then let me know.

What I promise is a rounded experience, action packed five hours with a balanced combination of watching, learning and doing. 

Here is a short video on my cooking class.
