Authentic Indian Cookery Class in Brighton

Join a professional chef for this four-hour Indian cooking lesson in Brighton, and learn to cook a delicious two-course meal of authentic Indian favourites.

Cooking Experience Days: This 4-hour cooking lesson in Brighton will introduce you to the authentic flavours and aromas of India. Receive tips from a professional chef as you learn to prepare a starter, main course and side dishes using quality fresh ingredients and spices.  

Lessons are held in a well-equipped, professional kitchen, a short walk from Brighton’s London Road Station. On arrival, you’ll be greeted by your tutor, Minesh, who’ll begin the lesson by talking a bit about the dishes you’ll be preparing. These will vary from class to class but will usually include a main course, side dish, chapati and rice. Don’t expect your typical takeaway fare though—Minesh’s dishes offer a true taste of India! Inspired by a truly uninspiring visit to a ‘traditional’ British curry house, he began teaching real Indian cooking over five years ago. His recipes are influenced by memories of childhood trips to Gujarat with his mother, as well as his many years in the restaurant business. They make use of the finest ingredients and spices, so you can look forward to big, bold, authentic flavours. After learning to prepare each dish, you’ll sit down to enjoy them together as a group. Trust us, you’ll never look at Indian food the same way again!

The Authentic Indian Cookery Class in Brighton is a great way to learn more about the world’s greatest cuisine, and Experience Days vouchers make unique gifts for keen home cooks and foodies.

Authentic Indian Cookery Secrets!

Can’t recommend this class highly enough. Minesh is a wonderful host, and extremely knowledgeable. He started with a little introduction before we started preparing our ingredients. I was the token vegan of the group, but I was catered for with separate vegan dishes, as well as being able to join in with the preparation of the meat dish before the meat went in. As we cooked, Minesh explained each part of the process, and everyone had a go at everything. The highlight of the class for me has to be grilling an aubergine straight onto a gas hob! I learnt so much about Indian food during this class, and I feel more confident cooking it at home now. At the end of the lesson, we all sat down to eat dinner together as a group which was a lovely way to end the evening. I’d definitely recommend this for anyone even remotely interested in Indian food, you’ll learn so much!

Authentic Indian Food

I had an amazing time not only cooking the food but also learning about the Indian culture. I learnt so much about different seasoning that can be used, and how to actually make it myself! Minesh was really good at engaging the group, he gave really good tips that made such a big difference to the taste of the food. I now feel confident to cook my own chicken curry, i cant wait to show off my new cooking skills !

Fun, informative and tasty!

This cooking class really opened my eyes to what real authentic Indian cooking is. Minesh, the chef, is just fantastic, his individual knowledge of the cuisine passed down from his family adds a lovely personal touch to the whole thing. The class had a really relaxed environment, and brilliantly catered to my friends dietary requirements. My favourite part was making the chapatis, something I never knew required so much skill! What really is great is that at the end of it all you get to tuck into your creations, talking, drinking and eating with your classmates. I'm not usually a fan of aubergine, but the Baingan Bharta (an amazing smoked aubergine dish) was my absolute favourite, and I will be sure to recreate at home!

A Very Impressed Food Lover!

I’m a self-proclaimed foodie and I must admit I was in my element in this lesson! Not to mention a little star struck being around the co-founder and chef of Indian Summer. Although the shop is small, Minesh created a relaxed and friendly environment for the whole class and his passion and knowledge of food was beyond impressive. I learnt things about Indian cuisine that I never knew before. He taught us how to cook a handful of delicious dishes, with some expert tips and tricks that I’ll definitely be using at home. It was really exciting to taste the Mamaji Chicken dish as it developed in flavour after each new addition (especially our own freshly ground spices!). I had a great evening, and I’m gonna buy a lesson for my mum this Christmas!
