Informative and fun cooking class with Rita and her team! We chose the 3 hour class and made 5 dishes, with time to chat with Rita and her husband. We learnt so much about indian spices and were able to make a pretty mean vindaloo! Highly recommend for an intro to indian, and specifically Goan cuisine. You also get a great take home bag with recipes and a cute gift!
The experience with Rita and her lovely team was truly first class. We were driven to the local market where fresh herbs were purchased and explained to us as we went round. We then cooked many different courses, starter, main and dessert, which was all absolutely delicious. Rita even guided us in not making the food too spicy.
