A passionate cook connecting cultures with food.
Serving real Indian feasts with stories.
On a mission to teach people that there is more to Indian food than Butter chicken and Rogan Josh. My love for food is infused with storytelling and memories so you can understand and appreciate where the ingredients came from and how easy it is to whip up a 6-7 course Indian meal any day of the week.

My partner and I had such an amazing time during this class. Bhavna was a wonderful host, who is very passionate about what she teaches. She shared with us a wealth of knowledge about Indian cuisine, spices and ingredients. She also shared the history of the spices and various ways they can be used.

Bhavna welcomed us into her home and made us feel very comfortable throughout the class. She prepared a booklet and a goodie bag for us to take home - including a number of different ingredients as well as very generous portions of all of the food we’d cooked together on the day.

Would absolutely recommend this to anyone who’s interested in Indian cuisine, regardless of their cooking skill level.

Bhavna was an amazing teacher, she was so warm, engaging and knowledgeable. We had a fun time learning how to cook a variety of delicious Indian vegetarian dishes and eating our meal together at the end. We left with plenty of leftovers, a booklet full of information and recipes, and a goodie bag with spices! I would recommend this experience to anyone, even a beginner cook like myself :)
