Ashburton Cookery School

Indian Plus

On our Indian cookery weekend you will learn the fundamentals of Indian cookery, covering the concepts, history and skills required to understand this hugely varied and vibrant cuisine.

We will teach you how to work with fresh ingredients, herbs and spices to create Indian starters, curries, main dishes and accompaniments that truly reflect the spirit of Indian cuisine and that can easily be replicated in the home without Tandoor ovens or specialist equipment.

You will learn to master the subtleties of flavour, and the power of spice whilst cooking a wide range of delicious, authentic Indian dishes as far removed from the British curry house as Ashburton is from New Delhi.

This is a highly practical course and great fun for couples and friends to take together which also makes for an original gift idea.

Please Note: An exciting new menu will soon be released for 2018, delivered by Ashburton's chef tutors.
