East meets West - cooking course!
What awaits you in the cooking course - Eats meets West
The East Meets West series combines the best of both worlds. In this cooking class, Chef Natasha Celmi brings her Indian heritage and combines it with European cooking techniques and classics to create innovative modern dishes. The world has become so small and you will experience this through a medley of global flavors and tastes.
Mediterranean salads come to life with a touch of fennel seeds and German brussel sprouts meet South Indian flavors of coconut, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Indian naan breads turn into delicious pizza bases and Italian pesto gets an Asian twist with fresh coriander. Enjoy vibrant vegetables and vegan proteins enriched with aromatic spices and Indian condiments while learning how to use them at home as well. You will also learn how to plate and present in style. Finish your meal with a delicate cardamom chai pannacotta which will leave your tastebuds dancing.
The course will be in English and some translation can be done among the guests if required.
However, food has no language and the course is very visual.
