Each "$100 per person" booking is for 2 people. Take a tour of the ancient spice routes and let this culinary pilgrimage bring you to your senses! Perhaps you’ll explore uncharted territory as you sample dozens of spices in a unique way that balances the bitterness. Create endless combinations and discover simple ways of adding new flavors to everyday cooking. You’ll learn fascinating history and lore of the spice trade and be treated to culinary poetry. Entering this world of spices is like opening a treasure chest full of exotic jewels that delight the senses! And, this experience will be served up amidst décor inspired by the spice routes. A few mins from downtown Grass Valley, you 'll drive to my home and walk down a short forest path, greeted by sitar music leading you to a small cottage. You'll be welcomed with a cup of masala chai and invited to explore your surroundings all decorated with Persian rugs and wall hangings. Once everyone has arrived and we introduce ourselves, I'll demonstrate how to explore the spices and the other interactive activities. Your journey will be interspersed with favorite spice quotes and interesting facts about spice origins and uses.
I love to cook, to share my passion for spices, and to honor the history of these aromatic gems! Clients share that my cooking classes rekindle the joy of finding new flavors and inspire creativity in the kitchen. While formal culinary classes and ethnic cooking workshops contributed to my education, my passion for food was heavily influenced by growing up in Europe and through cooking authentic Indian feasts for over 20 years. As the hearth of the home, my kitchen serves as playground, sacred space, and laboratory for this seasoned spiceologist!
Int'l Cheese plate We will end with a light snack of international cheeses.
Water and masala chai tea
My forest cottage is very quaint as people arrive by walking a short way through the woods and then come around a bend to find the cottage in front of them. It is beautifully decorated and very welcoming.
