Looking for someone with experience in Indian home cooking

My wife and I are looking for someone with experience in Indian home cooking to give some classes to us in December and/or January so we can learn how to prepare a few Indian dishes in our home in Aventura, FL. Pay to be discussed. Interested? Leave a message at (917) 753-0411, and we'll call you back.

      There are also tons of Indian cooking videos on YouTube, but of course you couldn't smell or taste the results until you made the dish yourself!

        WOW thank you for this wonderful cooking link I will treasure it

          Thanks. I have tried cooking Indian recipes and have had no luck in even coming close to restaurant quality.

        2. There is a lady, Mrs. Paromita Chatterjee that gives Indian Cooking Classes. Her company is called Flavors of Landour and she has a web site. Might be what you are looking for. Let us know how you make out.

            I stumbled upon this blog by sheer accident. I am glad I did. Looks like someone has been looking for me. Thankyou TIGirl for already introducing me but let me explain something more about myself. I am Paromita Chatterjee and I give personalised classes on Indian Cuisine from my home in Palm Harbor, FL. My company's name is Flavors Of Landour. Please visit the website

            The way it works is, you can either bring in a list of your dishes that you want to learn or I can suggest as per your needs and desires. We decide on date and time which is mutually acceptable. Prices are based on the kind and the number of sessions. Each workshop lasts a maximum of 2 hrs with 2 or 3 dishes. The participants get to have a hands on experience in cooking, learn the finer detials scientifically explained, and gets to know more about the dish beyond the recipe itself. All supplies are provided and the participants get to take home the cooked food.

            So far I have held my workshops at my home kitchen with very small groups of people never exceeding 4 at a time. If required, personal classes can also be arranged.

            I also write a newsletter each month based on my recent experience on food, particular spice or specific technique of cooking. If you want to get this newsletter, please email me at and I'll include you in my mailing list.

            If anyone is interested in learning how to cook Indian Cuisine, please contact me by email written above or phone-727-388-3537. Looking forward to hearing from you and having you in my kitchen.

            Then I realized that going to my fave buffet for $10.95 every second weekend was a better deal. I regret nothing!
