Fabulous morning learning to cook authentic Indian food! Not only did we make a range of fresh dishes (which we took home), we also learned about food culture, different spices and ingredients and how to use them to elevate a dish.

Truly enjoyable session, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an authentic experience!

My children bought me a Masterclass with Anita as a birthday present and, I can’t recommend it highly enough.
I was there for just over 5 hours and, made a range of dishes, all of which I took home - incredible!
It wasn’t just the dishes, I learned so much about different spices and their uses and, how to cook with them - I’ve certainly used the skills since.
Really lovely day, very relaxing and, great result

We had a fabulous day learning to cook a delicious Thai meal.
This was a birthday treat with my family and all of us had great fun and learnt a lot.
Anita made us so welcome in her beautiful kitchen.
I would thoroughly recommend this cookery class.

Well what a fantastic weekend making wonderful indian food in our own kitchen under the guidance of Anita over a zoom call (a present from Mrs Statham). We started with Paneer Jalfrezi, Onion Bhaji & Cumin Pilaff on Saturday (Ryan my son was sampling the Bhaji's before they reached the table), four clean plates and no left overs, not bad for dads cooking! Sunday was a big step up with Butter Chicken, Veg Samosa's & Naan bread (all from scratch), Anita was brilliant, I have never done any form of baking before but was amazed that my samosa's acually made it all in one peice to the dinner, they may not have looked perfect but they tasted mighty fine. I could write pages on just how good the Butter Chicken (Old Delhi style) was but I don't want to spoil it for you all, my suggestion is book a course with Anita at Hobby Cooks and enjoy the experience, the food is fantastic and its alot of fun.

My 2 sisters and I had a private cookery lesson with Anita - held in her own home it was a lovely informal learning environment - and Anita was full of interesting ideas and advice about all things connected with Indian cookery! We learnt how to make Naan (and an amazing way to cook it), 2 types of curry, some wonderful onion and spinach pakora, not to mention rice and potato cakes! Not only were we tasting the dishes as we made them we got to take them home with us! For anyone who loves cooking and wants to learn how to cook 'real' Indian dishes this is a great experience.

I went on the course just recently to learn how to cook an Indian meal. I found the the course was very interesting and how and what to use with spices. How to use them. Cooking a meat dish and a vegetarian dish. Make naan bread onion bhaji. When we finished the course we had lunch eating our masterpiece. It was great. I have booked to do another course very soon

I attended the Indian Masterclass cookery session today and I have to say that it was great. In a small group of 4, we cooked two really tasty curries, starters and chutneys, as well as naan bread. I thoroughly recommend the course and just hope now that I can recreate the cooking at home. Recommend as a present for a special occasion; mine was for my 40th birthday and I was thoroughly satisfied with it. Very good value for money also.

My husband was lucky to receive a gift voucher for a private cookery lesson with Anita for his birthday - and we’ve just had a fantastic day, learning all about different spices and cooking techniques. We were asked beforehand about what we liked to eat and Anita tailored the menu to our tastes and brought all the ingredients. It was a fun, informative session, and I’m looking forward to eating the vast amount of food we cooked later tonight. We would thoroughly recommend Anita, and look forward to putting many of her tips into practise.
And the house smells amazing!

My friend and I had a fantastic time cooking with Anita. There were lots of tips you would not get in a cookery book. Making 'instant' naan breads was a revelation! It was a wonderful and inspiring way to celebrate a birthday. Thank you Anita

My siblings and I wanted to get something a bit different this year for our Mum's birthday. We know she loves Indian food and decided that this would be the perfect gift; and it was! Anita came to my house with a variety of ingredients...(we had ben asked to get a few bits in advance) The day was fantastic and we learnt a lot about the techniques used and the reasons behind them. It was fun and educational with tips to use in the future. The meal we created was simply delicious and the perfect end to a busy day! We would highly recommend this experience!
