|$60 per device (laptop/tablet/etc)|
Since Yamini can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!
Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!
In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Yamini will guide you through making two of her family recipes. First you'll learn Yamini’s secrets to making crisp aloo paratha (delicious handmade flatbreads stuffed with a mixture of spiced potatoes and onions). You will then learn to make a complex, cooling raita (a cucumber and yogurt sauce) - the perfect pairing..

Awesome experience! I have taken cooking classes before at other places, but this exceeded my expectations (hands-on lesson, sit-down meal, friendly instructor, culture, meeting new people, etc.). I think what was great about this experience was the opportunity to learn real Indian cooking from the source.”
