Taste evenings: Indian feast

Looking for some inspiration for your next curry night? Instead of reaching for the takeaway menu, join us for a fun evening demonstration where our chefs will show you how easy it is to cook up a delicious Indian-style feast at home, starting with a classic fragrant paste and moving on to curries, sides and more.


What to expect

Our Taste demonstration evenings allow you to sit back and relax as our chefs showcase exciting ingredients, break down dishes and de-mystify tricky techniques to inspire you to give them a go at home. 

As a demonstration only, there’s no pressure – you get to watch, listen and learn, enjoy a drink and plenty of tasters, and quiz the chefs on anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to know about cooking your own curries and getting perfect rice at home. 

You’ll finish the night with recipes and information to take away, and hopefully the urge to build on this introduction – you can always book on one of our longer Indian cooking classes for some hands-on practice, too.
