Wow wow wow????I have to say it’s one of the best courses we have ever done. Want to learn how to cook restaurant style gravy based curry?? Well definitely not for you….Want to learn about authentic Punjabi culture, geography, and cuisine, learn techniques that have been passed through generations, and discover what you have been doing wrong with your spice mix and cooking methods for years whilst being surrounded by beautiful people in a cosy, homely environment???……then this is definitely for you.We felt welcome from the very first moment we stepped through the door. Surinder and Safia are 2 of the most beautiful people, both inside and out, that we have had the pleasure to meet, Knowledgeable, patient and passionate about everything they do and happy to pass on their knowledge and skills that they have spent years mastering. You can genuinely feel the history coming through the dishes as you cook. I cook a lot of Indian food at home, mostly self taught but focussing on one region and learning their tips and techniques has been invaluable, especially understanding some fundamental things that I’ve been doing wrong that all make sense now. Thanks for a fantastic day, we will definitely be back soon.Phil, ‘The Indian Experience’ February 2020

We teach the foundations of Punjabi food, which comes from the region of Punjab in North India
We teach the food as cooked by our mother and grandmother and we remain firmly rooted in her teachings. The workshop is based upon the first cookery lessons given by the mother to her daughter. Nearly all of the daily Punjabi cookery is based on a few fundamental principles, from which you can build your repertoire of dishes.Punjabi food is typically famous for dishes such as Tandoori and Tikka chicken, Naan, Dhal, Roti (chappatis), Samosas, Biriyani, Saag…to name but a few, but the real staples of old-school Punjabi food are Dhal and Roti, Sabjhi and Roti, and Saag and Makki di Roti.
