I recently organised for Nik to come to our family home for a private cooking course as a present for my dad. We had such an amazing experience. Nik was very accommodating to our numerous dietary requirements and came up with a menu that worked perfectly for us. He was very friendly and funny which made the whole experience very comfortable. The food itself was incredible, with some key lessons that we will definitely use again! At the end of the course we sat down for a lovely family meal in the comfort of our own home, and enjoyed the delicious food we’d cooked. We are very much looking forward to trying some of the recipes again!


I booked a private lesson for my family at our little flat in London as a surprise birthday present for my wife. Nikita arrived whilst we went out to pick up my mother in law and set up everything from tables , gas cookers, woks , food etc. We arrived back to a transformed flat ready to get cooking. An entire day of fun, laughter, cooking and the odd drink or two under Nikita’s witty and gentle guidance concluded with an amazing banquet that non of us could believe we had cooked. Age range 24 -87, tolerrence of splices 3-8, ability to cook 3-8 and we all loved it. Nikita gave us a really clear and simple insight to the world of spices and Indian cuisine and a hands on lesson that stuck in. I have just served a meal losely based on the dishes we had and it went down a storm. Not the cheapest option out there but Nikita does a brilliant job of engaging everyone, sharing his knowledge, entertaining and delivering a real experience tailored to you. Hugely enjoyable, very memorable and a real success.


Private class for family – Learned loads and had a lot of fun!

We booked a family outing to celebrate my sister’s birthday to learn some advanced veggie recipes and techniques. What a fantastic experience! Despite varying ages and levels of cooking experience, all of us left having had a brilliant time and feeling like we’d learned enough to go home and try out some Indian cooking techniques.

Nikita made the day really fun and fast-paced from start to finish. We began with a spice masterclass which really brought the subject of Indian cuisine to life. We had the chance to taste spices and get an introduction to the art of spice blending from an expert. If you are used to British or European styles of cooking, cooking with spice can feel a bit daunting. Nikita made sure we grasped some key principles of using spice so we could go away and try new things and not feel ties to following recipes word for word.

We were amazed by the number of dishes and techniques we got to try. The food we prepared with Nikita’s guidance was sooooo delicious and we even had some leftovers to take away.

Can’t recommend Spice Monkey highly enough. Thanks for a brilliant day Nikita 🙂
