We've taken cooking classes in many different places. Jyoti and Gourmet Desire is the best ever. She is delightful, warm and oh, does she know how to make the most delicious dishes! She makes it all seem easy, because she is so sensible about her advice. We've now tried making some of the dishes at home in New York with amazing success.

We recommend Jyoti heartily!

Having been overwhelmed by the chaos that is New Delhi, I completely enjoyed the down-home cooking experience with Jyoti. She arranged transportation for me as finding her place would be quite hard on my own. Her class was well organized and very informative. She has a great knowledge of Indian cooking and answered all questions. Most importantly, the food was fantastic!

I love Indian food and have been cooking it for years. This class gave me some new and very useful guidance for my next cooking exploits! The food we cooked was really delicious and I can't wait to try cooking them myself at home. We also received printouts of the recipes for all the dishes we made. Jyoti is warm and friendly and was a great host and teacher. It was a very sociable and friendly gathering as well - a really nice diversion from typical sightseeing activities.

I recommend this cooking class for anyone who is looking for a genuine, non-touristy experience. I had a great time learning to create Indian dishes with Jyoti in her home. She is an intelligent, interesting woman with a huge range of recipes to share. I attended the cooking class solo, so we had more than enough food! We discussed life in India as well as the US and took a tour of her local market to see where all the produce and spices come from. I returned home with a booklet of recipes and the confidence to use them.

Highly recommend cooking class - Jyoti will show you how to cook a huge range of dishes and explain lots of spices and the range of food across India. We got to help cook and eat everything, which was all delicious. Can't wait to try and cook it ourselves when we get home. Jyoti is also great to talk to and gave us great shopping tips.
