What

Each course revolves around preparing a complete Indian meal. We always teach 5 items and you don’t have to be a culinary whizz or know the first thing about spices. Step by step we’ll unlock the secrets of combining the aromatic spices at the heart of each dish. It’s all hands on with the reward of a fantastic meal to finish.

The day is all about learning the essential techniques to make your cooking instinctive and adaptable but Spice Monkey courses are also about meeting new people, having fun, cooking and talking about … food.
