"Absolutely loved this class! Shalini was a wonderful and organized host. I had the class time wrong and missed the class, but she was very kind and accommodating and we rescheduled the class for the following day. The curry and naan were both absolutely delicious and will definitely be making it again! I hope to take another class with Shalini in the future, and would highly recommend this class to anyone (especially vegetarians!)."

"This class was great, and lots of fun. I've wanted to explore Indian spices and cooking for some time, and Shalini was patient and clear in her instructions. I loved the whole experience, and can't wait to take more classes!"

"Shalini was very helpful and patient, and the food was excellent!"
Ashley 23 June 2020
"Shalini was very nice, willing to answer questions before, during, and after the class and customize recipes to what we wanted, and get up early to cook with us at 7am her time. It was a great experience to learn "homestyle" Indian cooking and we will make these dishes again. We took the class remotely, and Shalini had a phone mount I believe which helped us see each step she was taking so we could have a similar experience to in-person."
