Indian cooking class at Jamie Oliver’s Recipease

I'm not the world's greatest cook, but I try my best. My favourite cuisine has always been Indian, which as we know it here in London can often be high fat, high sugar and loves to send cholesterol into overdrive. But Indian food can be both flavourful and healthy, and actually quite easy to prep. When I discovered that the Jamie Oliver's Recipease restaurants offered cooking classes, I headed to Notting Hill to learn the art of South Indian street food. Something both new & constructive in one of my favourite London locations - for only £45.

The bustling kitchen area is packed with everything a beginner chef needs!

The restaurant has a great atmosphere. You can go there for dinner, a coffee, or to pick up delicious takeaway meals and Jamie Oliver cooking appliances. It’s big and spacious, and in the middle is a giant space for the cooking class. I arrived with a friend, and there were only two other people on the class so it was a really personal experience.

Our teacher, Antonia Morosi, was extremely friendly and taught us in an easy, non-patronising way. She would demonstrate a section of the cooking, explaining what different herbs and spices are used for, and share useful tips such as washing your hands with cold water and then running them on the steel of the sink after cutting garlic to rid the smell of garlic. After completing a step, we would then do it individually ourselves. Slow and steady wins the race…

The result!

We learnt how to make several different dishes and at the end got to enjoy our meal with a drink of our choice (wine for me). After the class you get sent the ingredients and recipes so you never forget. The best part? Putting my new skills into action, I cooked up a storm on Friday night in my home for all the girls and they loved it.

Put to the test…

It’s a brilliant day out and pretty good value. This would be a perfect date, or fun night for a group of friends. When you’re done, take a walk down Portobello Road or have a drink in Kensington Wine rooms (over 40 wines by the glass)
