Indian cooking classes in London

Take a peek into the heart of La Porte des Indes by joining award-winning Chef Mehernosh Mody (Ethnic Chef of the Year 2012 at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards) and his talented team as they unravel the secrets of Indian food with live Indian cookery classes in our London restaurant.

Join us at La Porte des Indes to participate in one of the most popular Indian cooking classes in London! That sounds like a tall claim, but you’ll soon see what we mean. Chef Mody shares insights on the numerous herbs and spices used in Indian cooking, as well as advice on how to prepare them by roasting, grinding and pounding – the successful basis of any Indian meal. You will also become aware of the importance of slow cooking in Indian cuisine, to allow the flavour to fully develop.

Learn to cook Indian food from the people behind one of the finest London restaurants. The award-winning Chef Mehernosh Mody will guide you through the subtleties and intricacies of Indian cuisine.

La Porte’s Indian cookery classes are famous among London restaurants for their personal touch and individual attention. In addition, you’ll learn everything you need to know about pairing wines with Indian cuisine – what notes complement which flavours, what best complements a spicy palate, and so on. Most interestingly, you’ll even learn to pair native Indian wines with the cuisine you make!

Then after the master class, enjoy the delights of the La Porte des Indes lunch menu, safe in the knowledge that cooking Indian cuisine at home will never be the same again. You’ll enjoy the food that much more, knowing exactly how much effort, talent and technique has gone into making it!

Whether you’re looking to treat yourself with a quiet evening in, cook a delightful meal for someone special in your life, or just impress your friends at potluck parties, knowing how to cook an exotic Indian meal is a talent that will never go unused.
