Cook with Reeta

Having been brought up in India, she was taught by her grandmother and nan from a young age that many symptoms can be treated and cured with food. When Reeta was young she suffered from arthritis and was cured by Sushil ji Vaid (an Ayurvedist in Jaipur) by simply changing her food habits. She has complete faith that if we eat the correct foods in the correct portions, at the correct times, we can keep ourselves healthy for a long time. She has great belief that Indian herbs and spices have a healing power which she is currently using in everyday life to increase the immunity of her body and her family. When her friends Lisa and Marie told Reeta that a doctor had asked them to become vegetarian and they explained that they had no clue how to, she decided to help them. Reeta showed them the vast number of options available in vegetarian cooking, and it amazed them. Their perspective on vegetarian cuisine was changed for the better. Another barrier to them cooking vegetarian foods was that they could not taste the food they saw being cooked in magazines and on youtube channels. Reeta does her best to make her cooking simple and easy to understand, allowing people who are trying to be vegetarian to easily be able to cook. She is active volunteer and is member of PPI committee of MRC Nutrition study Patient and Public Involvement committee HEEE( Health-Education-Engineering-Environment) . The study that aims to bring together partners from the UK and India to explore the factors that influence Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) practices and nutrition in India. The project represents a collaborative partnership between the institutes within UCL london, UK , save the childern and( India) and IIT Delhi.

She has also worked as Generalist Adviser for 6 years at citizen advice bureau.

Reeta was great, very knowledgable and a careful teacher! The food is delicious and exploring the spices and ingredients was great fun. Makes me want to do more Indian cooking courses!

This was a great class. Reeta took the time to explain the different spices and ingredients (including their health properties which was particularly interesting). Then we made a number of delicious dishes, not too complicated, very manageable, and very good. Reeta was a careful and helpful teacher. I'd definitely do another course with her, and this has whet my appetite for more Indian veg cooking!

Absolutely loved the Indian cookery class with Reeta. Such attention to detail was incredible, she was so sweet and eager to help us. Everything she had planned down to the smallest detail allowing us to do different versions of the same dish. She and her husband were such lovely people and they made us feel very welcome and we learnt loads. She even had boards prepared with little samples of the various spices, herbs etc. that we were going to use to talk us through it all. Would definitely go back again. Such an amazing time.

We had a great class with Reeta - she really 'knows her onions' (and spices!) She took us through all the indian spices including LOADS i had never come across before. The we got to cooking a 5 fantastic dishes all simultaneously and each one worked out great. While she was teaching us she even snuck in a little extra dish that i had mentioned was a fav of mine. Afterwards we all sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labour over lunch together. It was a great morning and very much recommended. PS. Reeta's kitchen is a-mazingly organised and incredibly stocked - worth it to see the range of spices, pulses and rices alone!

We had a wonderful time at Reeta's workshop learning about Indian herbs and spices, making Indian street food together and enjoying the end result. Reeta and her family are really kind and hospitable and apart from the menu we even got to try a couple of other homemade dishes that they kindly shared with us. Altogether we were in great company and enjoyed ourselves (and the food) a lot. Highly recommended.
