Chaat cookery classes

  Classes are very informal and meant to provide a lot of fun while learning the complexities of Indian dishes. I host the classes in Pantperthog Hall (a former school building in the local area), which can be hired for small occasions such as the cookery lessons.

Students eyeing each others rolled efforts. John’s was the largest although by rolling it so large the paratha is thinner than your would like it to be.

Gracies’s dough was quite hard. This mean that filling the dough with the potato was tricky. She had fun that’s the main thing:)

This is the time I really enjoy because my students get a chance to get their fingers dirty.
