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.
