The food we are familiar with at our local Indian restaurant represents a fraction of India’s culinary diversity. South and North India differ greatly in cooking methods, key ingredients and spices used.
This masterclass is ideal for Indian food lovers who want to develop their culinary skills further. We will kick off with preparation of a typical South Indian breakfast/brunch including dosa.
