For me, cooking is like breathing - effortless & essential. Along with fishing & boating, it is my greatest passion & it brings me great joy to be able to share my knowledge with you.

Before I was able to walk or talk, I have been mastering the art of Regional Indian Cooking & seafood under my Grandmother’s wing. This is why Heavenly Morsel is built on centuries of authenticity & skill.

Nana Lucy was a famous cook in her coastal town, having people come from far and wide to taste her signature cuisine & exquisite seafood. Her head-turning recipes & teachings are my family jewel, passed down many generations – true Portuguese-Indian food. A hidden gem cuisine like no other.

I proudly created Heavenly Morsel Melbourne, with the vision of bringing authentic Regional Indian cooking into the spotlight, through bespoke luxurious class settings where one can relax & be taken on a mouthwatering culinary journey that awakens all five senses.

After dining at countless Indian restaurants, reading plenty of online recipes & attending numerous “Indian” cooking classes in Australia, I have been greatly disappointed at what was served or taught because there was no proper authenticity, unique selection or delicious showcasing of the true cuisine!
I could not believe how wrong this was. People were missing out on the skillful, healthy cuisine of Indian cooking!

Thus, I have come to realize that educating people on how to cook genuine sumptuous Indian food, the way you would find in Indian homes – has become a life goal.

The immense satisfaction I get when I see my students have a lightbulb moment tasting proper Indian food & see how proud they are of what they cook, is like no other feeling in this world.

These are no ordinary cooking classes. Heavenly Morsel is a culinary experience like no other, where history meets passion & culinary skill. Almost everything you learn at my classes are treasured family recipes which have been passed down to me from my ancestors, through to my grandmother & mother – recipes that you won't find anywhere.​

No other class will teach you what Heavenly Morsel can, so join us & see just how spectacular Regional Indian cooking truly is. ​Food from history's past must live on..
Heavenly Morsel guarantees you memorable unique meals & compliments for years to come.

All classes (including the lunch) are relaxed, intimate, authentic & suitable for all levels - completed in my beautiful kitchen at my picturesque holiday home, in Berwick. A full sensory experience!

Mouthwatering food, gourmet nibbles, fine wines, cooking with a view & new friends await you at Heavenly Morsel Cooking Classes.
