Indian Cooking Class

I'm looking for a good Indian cooking class somewhere in the Twin-Cities area. I want to hook up a friend who's been dying to get into more Indian cooking. Ideally the class would be sometime in the next few months. Any ideas?

  1. Both Cooks of Crocus Hill and The Kitchen Window offer a wide enough range of classes that Indian cuisine makes it through the rotation on a regular basis. The timing often depends on whether a new cookbook has been released or a restaurant is gearing up for an opening. Their course catalogs are online, a few months at a time, so check back periodically for updates.

    Cooks of Crocus Hill also offers gift certificates that recipients can use toward course fees.

    1. I took an awesome cooking class at the Indian Foods Company last year--a tiny little store where they have a little nook for cooking demonstrations. They have a small grocery store and also grind and mix their own spices. I really learned a lot from this class.

        I took an Indian cooking class a few weeks ago through Minneapolis Community Ed, entitled "Sambars and Idlis". While I really enjoyed the food, I didn't learn too much about indian cooking (the instructor wasn't Indian), and it felt more like we were really just given a recipe to follow (which I could have done at home on my own much more easily and cheaply).
