  • FLAVOURS OF INDIA
    A complete world of taste!
  • Using the whole palette of flavours, spicy, sour, sweet and hot all at the same time with exotic ingredients and magical spices. Indian cuisine can be both exciting and intimidating.
    Not all Indian dishes are curries, but "curry" is what we call any spice-based dish with a sauce. Curries can be watery, dry, red, green, hot or really really hot - it's up to you to make every bite count.

Compared to Western food, ingredients used in Asian food create flavours that are intense, subtle, deep and contrasting all at the same time and all in harmony. Meat is used sparingly whilst vegetables, herbs and spice create taste and texture surprises.

Understanding how to combine and balance flavours is an important cooking concept in Indian food.  In these lessons you will learn how to balance and enhance flavours with easy recipes from Chef  Monica’s vast knowledge of cooking .

Your will be equipped with a life skill that you can teach to someone else or use to start your own business or training while at the same time impressing your family and friends .
