East India Cafe
Come and join us for our masterclasses in 2018 where our team of chefs will be cooking up a banquet of fine food for you to enjoy. Each class will be themed around one of India’s many colourful festivals, and the fantastic food traditionally eaten during each one. 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.
We will tell you about each course, history, how to recreate it at home (if you wish) and you will also go home with all the recipes, experiences – as well as a full tummy!
