Your instructor, Meghna Agarwal
I am a travel enthusiast, mother of 2 boys, Indian immigrant, wine and tequila lover, a foodie, kitchen paraphernalia collector, and the biggest party thrower. I teach Indian cooking classes in my tiny kitchen in San Francisco and at various cooking schools in the bay area. My classes are just as much about the community, as they are about the food which there is plenty of. I have often been asked about my culinary background, to which I facetiously respond that I come from a culture that has been focused on food for the past five thousand years. Certainly, quite a resume! However, there is nuance of truth insofar the Indian cuisine has evolved through millennia to yield a rich and varied culinary repertoire. The gamut of Indian flavors is extensive, with a multitude of unique offerings from each of India’s thirty states. Coming from a heritage that has food as the epicenter of most occasions, I found myself yearning to replicate the scrumptious delicacies, be it from high end Indian restaurants in Mumbai to street food in smaller towns such as Lucknow. The journey that ensued led to the creation of “Crimson Kitchen”, where I teach Indian cooking classes and cater events and parties. It’s my platform for bringing mystical Indian dishes and traditional recipes to a community that reveres food just as much as I do. So, here I am, to socialize my food and unveil new tastes that delight all. Visit my website to see what current dishes are offered for my virtual cooking classes!
My virtual classes are live and interactive. I have made this experience as close to an in-person class as possible. You will get to ask questions and receive feedback on your dishes. The classes are held via Zoom, with a maximum of 12 students. Ingredient and prep lists will be made available to the students. Printable recipes will be sent out to each registrant. You can cook along or just choose to watch, and take notes during the class. Class Format: - Each class runs for approximately 2.5 hours. - Group classes are typically 4-6 people. I also do introductions to a variety of spices and an overview of regional Indian cuisines. Start cooking and finish with a wonderful sit down meal prepared by you!
Classes are held via Zoom and information of classes are sent out after registration.
