As some of you already know, in additional to providing cooking recipes on this website, I also teach cooking classes in person. I give evening lessons at some of the high schools in the San Diego, CA area, which is where I reside.
This evening I will be giving cooking classes at Torrey pines high school. Since it’s the holiday season, I will be teaching holiday cooking for social events and for gift giving.
I never dreamed that I would enjoy teaching these classes so much. Rarely do I have somebody from India in my class. The students ages vary from 20 to 70 years old. Every body is very enthusiastic and surprised to see how easy it is to cook a flavorful Indian dish. All the students have eaten Indian food and their perception was it will be hard to cook and not very healthy. I am surprised nobody questions me, why I don’t use onion and garlic. They enjoy the flavors from the spices, vegetables and lentils and they love home made yogurt.
If you live in the San Diego area and are interested in signing up for my classes, please call the the San Diguito School disctrict for rgistering: 1-760-753-7073 ext. 5103
