It's difficult to express the entire range of feelings and flavors that my partner and I experienced, mostly because language is insufficient. Chef Parsati cultivated an experienced that intersected culture and personal experience. We were able to enjoy the flavors of Northern India in a way that fit our personal flavor profile. Her class was an experience that spanned food chemistry, culinary flow, and physiological health benefits. Every herb, ever spice was very intentional. Her passion cannot be over stated. If you are fortunate enough to find a time frame that works for you, do yourself a favor and book an afternoon or evening with Chef Parsati.

I have had the pleasure of taking Chef Parsati’s “A Tour of Northern India” class. In a warm and inviting atmosphere, Chef Parsati provided detailed and easy-to-follow instruction, including interesting background on the many ingredients, as well as generalized cooking tips that will apply well beyond the particular dishes prepared. I recommend Chef Parsati class without reservation.

This was really fun and the food was great. I am hoping to reproduce what Chef Parvati taught me. Learned a few way to make some really good healthy stuff. Thank you
