East India Cafe

A banquet deserving of royalty. We invite you to join us for our cookery masterclasses in 2020. Our team of chefs will be cooking up a banquet of fine food for you to enjoy. Each class will bear a theme inspired by the Raj Era, reminiscent of the festivals, transport, street food of the period. Of course, each masterclass will highlight modern Indian cooking techniques and the fantastic food traditionally eaten during festivities. Every dish will be cooked right in front of your eyes with the delegates’ participation giving you the opportunity to have an extra special dining experience.

East India Cafe masterclasses present the opportunity for you to delve deeply into the history behind each course and digest the intense flavours. Our expert chefs will also decipher the sought after recipes so you can recreate your favourites at home if you wish. Having enjoyed the experience, our guests leave with all the recipes of the class and spice pack – as well as a full tummy!

Bengali Cuisine

This Cookery Masterclass Takes Place On – 30 August 2020

Bengali cuisine is one of the finest blends of non-vegetarian and vegetarian dishes. Bengal is known as the land of ‘Maach aar Bhaat’ which means ‘fish and rice’. The wide varieties of Bengal Cuisine in festivals, occasions and seasons are an integral part of Bengali Culture – literature, songs, paintings, movies have a nostalgic appeal. The Bengali cuisine has a unique feature being an assimilation of the best of the world gastronomy and Indian diverse cookery. Rasogolla and pitha of Bengal are world-famous.

We invite you to have a taste of pure Bengali Cuisine because we are very proud Bengalis!
