So yesterday I went to my first ever cooking class and it was awesome.
I learnt a lot about Indian curry’s and general tips about spices – good spices. And in the end the food that we cooked together was oh so delicious.
There were 10 of us in the class, some of us for the first time and others for their 5th. There were 4 different dishes to make so we all got to volunteer to make a dish. I did the “Grilled Eggplant Curry”. I’m not a big fan of eggplant but after yesterday’s dish I’ve changed my opinion.
My other favorite was the stuffed lemon chicken. The lemon just gave such a kick to the taste and the vodka - well it was a nice addition.
It was a great class. So much so that I’ll be going back next week for more. But before Friday comes around I need to make one or more of the dishes I learnt for my family.
So anyway here are some pictures from yesterday.

soaking/boiling the lemon chicken in the vodka sauce
Samosa’s. (I found it a little difficult to make these, I mean the triangle shapes)
my plate after it was all done. We also had some Chicken Tikka, Spinach with Cheese and Lentils. Everything was so yummy.
Our teacher owns a restaurant which is where the extra food came from. The food is good.
So there it is my first cooking class.
