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.

Cooking with Chef Parsati was a great experience! She told us she wanted us to feel like guests in her home just making and enjoying a meal together and that’s exactly how it felt! I learned a lot and enjoyed it very much!

Chef Parsati was great for our corporate team building event! She brought everything needed for us to make the dumplings and helped us steam them afterwards for a tasty meal. She included both vegetarian and chicken options and was careful to keep them separate. While we were making them Chef Parsati explained the importance of each ingredient and how it'd contribute to the end taste and showed us multiple ways to fold the dumplings. Our team really enjoyed the event!
