feasting on the tastes and aromas of Indian food
The passion to create delicious and healthy Indian food… each meal a time to come together in mutual pleasure and gratitude for the abundance life offers. It’s true, is it not? We spend more time communicating with our dearest friends, family and colleagues through social media, email and all the rest of it than actually face to face! Whatever happened to the dinner parties we (and our guests) used to get so much pleasure from?
Some of the very best times of my life have been spent sitting around the dinner table, talking, laughing… sharing delicious food and a glass or two of fine wine with friends and family. Sometimes we’d just meet for brunch – any excuse for a lie in before enjoying a casual late breakfast meal in the mid morning sun. As the sun set, we’d often find ourselves in bbq mode, cooking traditional and ethnic treats for friends and visitors to Australia. As special occasions came and went we marked them by digging out our best linen, dressing up the table, polishing the glassware and inviting everyone over for dinner. Whatever we did, no matter how casual or formal, there was something particularly warm and rewarding about sitting down to feast upon what we had all created.
cookery classes: passion shared
Cooking is my passion of course. It is integral to Indian life – our way of celebrating any occasion and honouring the people we meet. Which is why when you visit Prana we offer you refreshments: chai, seasonal fruit or small morsels of our cuisine to tempt, ease and refresh the palate.
If you have enjoyed those things as a client – or if you are yet to visit Prana but nevertheless love Indian food, I can help you to create the sublime tastes, textures and aromas of authentic Indian food. As I was taught, SO I TEACH YOU how to create, prepare and present a meal that is all your own; not mine. That is the way that food passion spreads and enriches us all. It is the best gift I can give you – the ability to understand the delicious simplicity of combining ingredients correctly, the cooking techniques to arrive at rounded flavours and the confidence to create your own version of a meal your guests will adore!
