Upcoming Class at 18 Reasons: Flavors of India – Home Cooking Basics


There’s not much Stacie and I enjoy more than cooking together, learning recipes from moms and dads and developing recipes and cooking classes (and of course teaching them!).  We have a brand new cooking class coming up at one of our favorite venues – 18 Reasons – in May, and it is going to focus on every day Indian home cooking – the stuff we eat at home that you will not get in a restaurant. 🙂

We have learned over the years that Indian spices and Indian cooking mystifies people.  As much as people love Indian food, most prefer to eat it out, versus learn how to cook it themselves.  Unfortunately, in my humble opinion, the Indian food at home is far superior to almost anything you can find in a restaurant (I also had the good fortune of growing up in a family of AMAZING cooks).  Ask me what my favorite Indian restaurant is in San Francisco (a very common question), and you will catch me looking befuddled and searching desperately for (a polite) answer.  That’s because my mama makes the best Indian food and no restaurant (in San Francisco) compares.

Here are the details for our Indian home-cooking class – we are SUPER excited about it.  Tickets at this link.
