My masterclasses are great if you are looking to expand your Indian cookery skills and dive deeper into specific dishes or types of food. The menus for these masterclasses keep changing and cover a number of elaborate dishes such as Biryani along with Indian breads, snacks and light bites, desserts etc Biryani is a classic one-pot dish with layers of meat and rice infused with fragrant spices cooked over slow heat in a sealed pot. Biryani is known as the food of the royals and is thought to have been invented to provide balanced nutrition to the soldiers in the old days! In this masterclass, you will cook a delightful Chicken Biryani learning how to do the perfect marinade and cook light and fluffy rice which are both key to a good Biryani.

BYOB Ultimate Pottery Experience

Great experience!! From beginning to end, get to make your own clay pot and paint it, as well as pick something already made to paint! - very relaxing, friendly atmosphere. The teacher is lovely, chatty, helpful and welcoming! We were running a bit late so emailed beforehand to which we got a quick reply saying it was fine! Would definitely recommend to others! To do with a friend or a group of friends who want to try something new, or just have a relaxed evening! Thanks again

Absolutely amazing, so glad I chose to do this with Sampada. She was really friendly and helpful. Small classes in a lovely studio overlooking the canal. 3 hours is the perfect amount of time, any less would have been way to rushed. Can make mugs/plates/bowls/models or whatever you want. Thanks so much!
