Anyone who knows me also knows that I am passionate about authentic food, and sharing the experience of cooking with people. Recognised as the youngest Asian female to manage an Indian restaurant I have been creating my own dishes and am now planning to launch a cookery school in Bournemouth for small groups.
Cooking and eating authentic food together makes good things happen!
As people cook and eat together they enjoy community, learn about food and food ingredients, build confidence and skills. Above all they have fun!
If you'd like to be amongst the first to experience the cookery school please pledge on my crowdfunder and choose your reward: you can come by yourself or we can create a small group.
Before the lock down I had a thriving business travelling up and down the country preparing delicious dinners for individuals at small events and serving great food to hundreds of happy customers at festivals. I was busy delivering engaging cookery demonstrations through the year.
As we start to open businesses up after the Covid crisis, there's an opportunity to re-imagine and build something better: to spend time focussing on the important as well as what - and who - we love. What could be better than learning how to nourish yourself and your family, and have some fun in the process?
..and after all, this nation loves a great curry!
So I'm asking you to help be build a new business that will allow me to feed my passion while teaching people to cook and providing authentic experiences for small groups where we all cook together and eat together.
