It will come as no surprise to most people that Indian food is considered a national dish in Britain – our relationship with curries has been a love affair, and increasing education on how healthy Indian food can be when prepared in a traditional style means that this is likely to flourish as we become more aware of the importance of eating well. With around 2.5 million customers eating Indian food in Britain every week, this accounts for around two thirds of all eating out, but learning how to perfect Indian cooking at home is not only satisfying and fun, but cheaper than takeaways and a great way to impress your friends.
One of the keys to mastering Indian cookery is understanding how to use spices and aromatic herbs to flavour your food without overwhelming the natural taste of the ingredients. An Indian cookery experience will give you all the tips you need on how to season your food well enough to give it a deep, exotic flavour without making everything taste the same or burning your taste buds to the point where you can’t taste a thing.
An Indian cookery experience is also a great chance to learn how to make some of the traditional dishes which you have probably eaten for years with only the vaguest idea of what actually goes in to them – now is your chance to discover how to prepare some of your all time favourites for yourself. You will learn how to prepare party dishes as well so if you like to impress your guests with your culinary skills, or perhaps surprise those who didn’t realise you knew your way around the kitchen, then an Indian cookery experience is the perfect opportunity to hone your talents.
So, if you’re looking for a gift idea for someone who has a taste for gourmet cookery and would like to broaden their repertoire to include some of the country’s favourite dishes, then an Indian cookery experience is bound to offer some inspiration as well as invaluable hints and tips for creating delicious dishes at home. Or perhaps you know someone who doesn’t know one end of a spoon from the other, but might be inspired to improve their skills if they knew they could make something truly tasty on their own – an Indian cookery class could be just what they need to coax them into the kitchen and have them whipping up tasty treats in no time.
