Writing this review after hosting a Indian dinner party with friends last night! It took over 2 hours to clean up but the food was a hit!! Thanks Shakti!!!
We returned from India a few days ago and did the Spice Box cooking class in Udaipur last week.
On the morning of the cooking class we read the review below and almost cancelled. SO, SO glad we didn't! (Please don't let it bother you ... personally I think that girl and her boy must have gotten sick off something else they ate!)
Shakti was a great teacher. The others in our class were about an hour late so we were lucky in that we got extra time to chat with him and learn about Indian life. Definitely one of the highlight chats of our trip!
A tongue-in-cheek man, it was a funny class and easy to learn. You take turns being hands on and instructions are easy to follow. It was great to be able to learn how to cook Indian in an Indian way not the western way in which we normally eat it.
On return back to Australia we were super excited to go to the local Indian grocery store. We actually knew what everything was and it was easy to get everything we needed to re-create the dishes we had learnt to cook - at home.
In the class you learn how to cook a few dishes, but the great thing is that you learn how to create so many dishes off those. We followed what we had learnt and did a few spin off's from them and they really were great. I think that is the truth of how good a cooking class is ... We have done many overseas and in Australia (paying up to $250 per person per class and in spotless 5 star Miele kitchens), but I have to say that this is the class where we have actually come home and cooked everything that we have learnt!
Our only regret is that we didn't stock up on more spices at the shop. And that we can't run down the road to ask to learn more!
We would have been happy to pay extra for a class for just us two to do so.
