About This Class
Indian holidays are a time to indulge with rich and delicious dishes. This time of year it is great to celebrate with old favorites but how about shaking up some of your holidays with the flavors of India?
We will prepare malai kofta- a quintessential celebratory dish made with potatoes and fresh cheese in a rich tomato sauce. Everyone adores fragrant, luscious Chicken Korma. This curry, in a base of almonds, cream, and saffron, is everything when its homemade.
To balance all the richness we will make some melt in your mouth, light kebabs made with yogurt and paneer. Last but not the least we will each make some fresh bread to compliment the meal and top it all off with glasses of cool Mango Lassi.
Dahi ke Kebabs, Malai Kofta, Chicken Korma, Pulao, Chutney, Poori, and Mango Lassi
The average duration of our current cooking classes is 2 hours, which is predominately hands-on work. You will be standing for the majority of class, cooking at your work station as your instructor demonstrates techniques and walks around providing individual feedback.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we can not have students congregate in the building before class starts. Doors will open 5 minutes prior to class starting and we will begin promptly on time. Students will be asked to queue up outside the door of the school, safely distanced (sidewalks are clearly marked) and will be let in the school just before class begins.
Please arrive at the school with your own mask on. You will be given a new, disposable mask to wear in class to ensure what you have on hasn’t been contaminated prior to entering SFCS. We will have extras available should you need one while at school.
Wear comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes (remember, you’ll be on your feet cooking). The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped with everything else you need, including clean aprons.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we will not be serving food or drinks during class, We will, however, be sending you home with both ingredients and finished food items so you can enjoy them later, and practice as well.
Wear casual clothing you can easily move around in, and comfortable close-toed shoes. Long hair must be pulled back and masks, provided by SFCS, are required while in the building.
