I’ve been learning the art and science of Indian breads for over 30 years, cooking at home for friends and family. Indian flat breads (in most cases unleavened) have evolved to be distinct in the world of breads and I look forward to introducing you to nuances of it. This experience is an introduction, to get you curious, connected and motivated to try it at home. It is easy to participate in and can be cooked in most home kitchens around the world. Indian breads are a vast universe with many different flours, implements, methods and accompaniments. We will literally and figuratively get the ball rolling :)

Es war ein sehr schönes Zusammensein und Julian hat uns sehr gut in die Kunst der Roti Herstellung sowie in viele andere indische Eigenheiten eingefügt. Es war ein sehr schöner Mittag mit sehr leckerem Essen

Had a really lovely experience. The moment I stept inside the location of the course I knew that this was going to be awesome. The course is done from his own home. Besides being really modern en having a relaxed atmosphere it also felt like an escape from the busy live in Bangalore. During the course Julian went through the basics of making four different kind of breads. He gave me the knowledge required to start making them back at home. Furthermore, Julian figured out that I enjoy a glass of wine occasionally, and opened up a bottle of Indian wine for me to taste. It made me feel that he would go the extra mile to make his guest have a outstanding experience!
