Comments from previous class participants

“I always enjoy cooking, but I don’t cook enough. Shambhu’s cookery course was a wonderful way to learn how to make 3 tasty dishes that were not only vegan, but very healthy, particularly in the way Nishma made them. The course was taught in a very informal, friendly setting, and watching Nishma make the dishes so effortlessly was a pleasure. A few days later, motivated by the session, I made the Vegetable Manchurian (one of the dishes we learnt), and thanks to the great guidance and instructions provided, it turned out to be delicious (if I do say so myself).”
