A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Masks are recommended.

Cooking street food is a way to gain insight into the diverse cuisine of India and to get a taste of food that fuels everyday life for busy people. Not to mention, it's also delicious, as what survives in a competitive street food market must meet the tastes of discerning eaters! The menu for this class includes two popular street food dishes: Pav Bhaji and Bombay Frankie. Pav bhaji is a popular street food dish from Mumbai, made with a mixture of vegetables, spices, and a special pav bhaji masala. The dish is typically served with soft, buttery pav (buns) and topped with a dollop of butter.  Bombay frankie is another popular street food dish from Mumbai; it's a wrap made from a paratha, filled with chicken or paneer, and a special masala. To complement the savory dishes, our menu includes a sweet and refreshing mango lassi and a tangy chutney, which can be used as a dip or a spread. This cooking class is a great way to learn about the flavors and techniques used in Indian street food, and to discover the rich and varied culinary traditions of India.
