4 hour class
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. You will cook this one pot rice dish from scratch along with a number of delicious accompaniments (see menu below).
These classes are hands-on, fun and sociable. We will start the day with a welcome drink while discussing the origins of Biryani along with the ingredients and preparation method that you’ll be using. You will then roll up your sleeves and get going to prepare a delectable Chicken Biryani which we will enjoy together after the class.
