Your host Reshma
Reshma lives in Mumbai with her father. As a child, Reshma’s love for poha (spiced beaten rice) is what made her curious about cooking. Reshma spent a lot of her time watching her mother cook in the kitchen, fixing dishes for loved ones. Like every Indian family, her parents hoped she would become a doctor, engineer or earn an MBA, but she had only one dream: starting her own restaurant. As destiny would have it, she went on to study at culinary school. When she’s not cooking and feeding people, Reshma enjoys photography and playing squash. In your online class, Reshma will teach you to make biryani, a layered rice and meat dish flavored with spices.

"Reshma was terrific, she was incredibly patient with some novice chefs on our screens (we had 6 total screens). She did a great job interacting with each of us, sharing insight about the food but also shared about her culture."

"Reshma is a wonderful cook - she made the process of preparing butter chicken and naan easy to follow. We had several family members online - it was a great way to get together during Covid 19! Lots of fun - I'd highly recommend her class"

"This class was fantastic! Reshma provided easy to follow instructions, provided insights into the ingredients and flavors and we made a delicious meal! Really fun way to pull together family members living all over right now. Even my 5-year-old nephew was engaged!"

"First of all, this is only 4 stars instead of 5 because I am still sad we can't be taking these classes in person. The online format is the best it can be, but how I wish the world was open and I could have been there in Mumbai with Reshma! However, as an online experience, it was great! Reshma was friendly and fun and very patient with us. We went way over time, but Reshma never seemed to be rushing us even though it was late at night in India. Thank you for that expansive sense of time! Her instruction was perfect, the dishes were great, and it gave my family a great way to spend time together from 3 different states."

"Reshma helped us create a truly amazing butter chicken and naan dinner and we have made the meal twice since : ) We've always wanted to try it but felt intimidated by recipes online, so it was awesome having this chance to be guided through the process by an expert. Reshma was super kind and easy to connect with. I was nervous about getting the time set up correctly from the US to India, but it was a very easy process to finding a time that worked for all. Would definitely try the Traveling Spoon again and have recommended to several friends who enjoy cooking and traveling."
