Lovely Indian Cooking Class

My partner and I spent a great 3 hours with Rani - just the 3 of us in her own kitchen at home. Rani was welcoming, very open to questions, clear and obviously very skilled in preparing delicious food. We helped prepare the potato filling for masala dosa, made the dosas themselves, some lemon rice and an excellent Keralan fish curry. We were able to taste the food as we cooked it and then bring home enough for a meal. Overall, the session was very well organised and exceeded our expectations - I'd happily recommend it to anyone wanting to gain skills in this kind of cooking. The class we took was South Indian Specialities, but Rani also offers several others.

Brilliant teacher, great food

This is my second cookery class with Rani (the first was Indian street food starters). She is a great teacher - warm, friendly and patient. Her cookery knowledge seems boundless and she makes the best tasting Indian food I've ever had - and now I can cook (some of it) myself! The class price is very reasonable, especially when you consider you get to take home enough fantastic curry for two people.
