Back by popular demand this hands-on class with Indian chefs Nina & Sumita will teach you how to mix authentic ingredients and spices, and make great tasting Indian food at home.
The course starts with a coffee and a chat with the ladies about the day ahead, and then it’s through to the kitchens for demonstrations of a range of authentic Indian dishes. Next it’s time to roll up your sleeves put on an apron, learn new skills and enjoy replicating the dishes under our Nina & Sumita’s expert instruction.
We firmly believe that great cooking isn’t about recipes, it’s about techniques and you’ll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors. In every class, you will get hands-on experience throughout the class. For some dishes the chefs will have done some of the prep for you so that you can maximise your hands-on time with cooking and learning
At the end of your cookery experience, you can retire to the dining room to enjoy the fruits of your labour with a glass of wine/ soft drink. The class includes time to sit down and enjoy your culinary creations. However if you do wish to take any food that you have cooked home with you, please bring suitable containers.
Please arrive 10 mins prior to the commencement of the class. On arrival you will be directed to our coffee lounge where you can meet the chef and chat about the class.
Please wear comfortable clothing and closed toe, non-slip footwear. An apron will be provided for you to use during the class.
Please note – we are unable to accept any responsibility/liability for food taken out of the cookery school, however if you do wish to take any food that you have cooked home with you, please bring suitable containers.

Feedback from a previous Indian class:
I treated my dad to a visit to the Cheshire Cookery School for fathers day and went along with him myself! I have to say we not only had a fantastic time but learnt how to make the best chicken tikka masala I have ever tasted plus a whole array of other Indian cooking techniques, the two ladies that held the lesson were not only informative but a lot of fun too. I will be recommending to my friends for sure. Thanks Lisa and the whole Cheshire cookery team x
