I recently hosted a dinner party for some girlfriends where we had Shalini teach us how to make a fabulous Indian feast....and fabulous and feast it was! She managed to teach us various tricks of the trade despite our constant chatter -- a real skill! I can highly recommend Shalini's Kitchen and hope to host another party soon. She was super easy to work with, accommodating all special requests. And the whole night was made even more special due to Shalini's attention to details: a personalize and detailed menu book for each participant to take home, as well as our own garam masala, freshly made by Shalini. Thank you so much!
Two friends and I decided to take a cooking class together from Shalini's Kitchen. From the start, Shalini was such a pro. She is uber organized and so easy to work with. Shalini emailed menu options and was very accommodating of they way we wanted to organize the session (as a cooking lesson to prepare a "Sunday supper" all three families would enjoy together). Shalini arrived before the start of the lesson to make sure everything was set up properly, bringing with her customized menu books, shopping lists, individual cutting boards and utensils and all the ingredients for both the lesson as well as a short tutorial on spices that preceded the session. The dishes we made - chicken curry, chickpea masala and cauliflower gobi - were scrumptious and easy enough that I've been able to replicate them on my own. Last but certainly not least, the lesson was not only instructive but fun! We added wine and music and had many laughs along the way. A great way to spend an enjoyable afternoon. Highly recommend lessons with Shalini to anyone who wants to expand their cooking repertoire, learn from a real pro at a reasonable price and have fun.
Fantastic girls' night out experience! A small group of us got together for a glass of wine and some cooking and had the bext time making dinner, talking and just meditating over the spices. Of course it was easier to convince our husbands to babysit if the result of the girls' night out as a delicious dinner!
An awesome experience!!!!! Shalini was professional, sweet, and an incredible chef! She really makes it easy and fun. My wife and I had a blast. And almost most importantly, the food is soooooooooooo delicious! Highly recommended!
I surprised my husband for his birthday with a cooking class in our home. He loves Indian food! Shalini taught us how to cook three amazing dishes and they were surprisingly simple. We had so much fun and it was a perfect thing to do for a special date night! We highly recommend Shalini's Kitchen!
A date with Shalini's Kitchen was the perfect girls night! Shalini brought everything we needed to make the delicious meal, presented things beautifully and was such as pleasure to be with as she made the mysterious world of Indian cooking totally accessible. What a bonus to have Chef Jamee teach us knife skills and give extra info about ingredients and nutrition! The meal came out delicious, and with the awesome recipe packets I know I'll be able to replicate it again. By the time we looked up from tasting the food, Shalini had the kitchen cleaned. I can't recommend highly enough!
After learning how to at a Shalini's Kitchen party, made the Baignon Bharta for my family over the holidays and they loved it!! They were pleasantly surprised as I rarely cook.
Awesome experience and meal!
We had a great time as a family learning how to make yummy, healthy Indian food. Thanks Shalini - the gift was a great hit!
Shalini catered an evening meal for me recently for a romantic dinner! It was so delicious!! Amazingly so!!
