I've had the good fortune to take Chef Vinutha's virtual South Indian cooking classes and I can attest to learning a great deal of not only the process of following a recipe and making the dish but also the why behind using certain ingredients and the cultural importance of food in a South Indian milieu. Chef Vinutha has exceptional interpersonal and communication skills. She is a natural teacher and makes even the most difficult technique understandable to the newbie cook. She expresses ideas and processes clearly in a very precise and orderly fashion. She is passionate about her cooking and her culinary expertise encompasses many other ethnic foods. Her recipe and menu designs are both traditional and innovative and highlight her creative approach to every meal she prepares. I look forward to future classes with her.
