Introduction

Indian cuisine has a rich history that defines its culture, we want to share our passion of cooking authentic classical Indian dishes that have a depth and balance of flavours. We will teach the group about the mindfield of spices and how to use them, we will make marinades, side and rice dishes, this is not only a team bonding activity but also an education in cooking classical Indian cuisine

Event Outline

As an icebreaker we will begin with a spice quiz that will test the palates of your team, followed by knife skills, health and safety, and a engaging informative talk on Indian spices, and how to use them.  Teams will then enjoy an interactive cookery demonstration on marinading, making masala’s, how to cook perfect rice every time and preparing side dishes such as bhaji’s or samosas.  Groups will then create a dish under the watchful eye of our professional chef and then sit down together to enjoy the Indian cuisine.  We can add in a  judging criteria for a competitive edge and judge the teams based on the balance of dishes, creativity and presentation.
