Experience hands-on learning with cooking, baking, grilling and use of flavorful spice blends. Learn cooking methods so you can create your own recipes to match your tastes and diet needs using seasonal, and frozen vegetables. Please bring containers for leftovers.

Menu:

  • Baked vegetables with mild spices
  • Grilled stuffed vegetables
  • Curry with vegetables and paneer (or tofu)
  • Vegetable korma curry with coconut milk and gourmet spice flavors

We will teach you creative cooking methods so you can match your personal tastes and diet needs. Unlike most cooking classes, we are not about teaching specific recipes. Our goal is that with practice you can cook using your imagination without detailed recipes.

Our curriculum is based on Design Thinking, a creative problem solving approach, taught at Stanford. Learn creative cooking using a variety of ways:

  • Different cooking methods like cooktop, grilling, baking
  • Fresh ingredients like vegetables, tomato, onion, garlic, ginger
  • Pantry items like frozen vegetables, canned and dry legumes
  • Variety of spices and spice blends
  • Modern appliances like instant pot, pressure cooker, grill, food processor, blender

You will be given a helpful list of pantry items with long shelf life. We want to enable you to cook healthy and tasty food even when you don’t have time to shop for fresh ingredients.

You will have the chance to demonstrate your creativity during hands-on cooking experiences in the class. Enjoy the food we cook during the class and please bring containers to take leftover food.
