What you'll do
We'll gather at the kitchen table, make our own Indian Cappuccino and get to know each other over an introduction to Indian spices. Then I will take you step by step through the various creations that I grew up cooking with my mom and am perfecting as an adult. This experience will be entirely participatory so together we will prepare ingredients and cook 3 dishes which we’ll enjoy together at the end. A sample menu would include a rice dish, a vegetable or lentil dish and a chickpea pancake dish that is a great appetizer or on-the-go snack. The entire meal can easily be made vegan or gluten free if needed so please send me a note of any foods you'd rather avoid when you sign up and highlight any allergies. If you'd like to add meat to the session, please book or inquire about a private booking. After we eat, there might be a quiz on the Indian spices! I’m excited to share my heritage and passion with you, and to get to know each of you who participate. I hope you will enjoy your creations!

I am a yoga teacher and cooking-enthusiast with a background in public health and health education and I'm excited to be working in a field that combines two of my favorite passions: Cooking and meeting new people. For as far back as I can remember, I woke up to the smell of cumin seeds roasting and onions browning in my childhood home in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan called Bloomfield Hills. Through my career, I've studied the benefits of the Indian spices I've grown up cooking with and want to share both the spices and some of my favorite recipes with you.
