Join Jemima, and her husband and children, when they are home, for a home-cooked South Indian cooking class and meal experience. Jemima lives in a family home on the outskirts of London (London Zone 6) in Orpington, a quiet suburb of London with professional working families. In your cooking class learn to make traditional South Indian dishes with Jemima, who has been cooking throughout her life. You might learn to make dishes like a traditional tomato or coconut chutney, a meat or vegetable curry dish, and as well as dosas or idlis.

After your cooking class, you will enjoy the meal you helped prepare. Your menu might include South Indian staples such as dosas (Indian crepe-like pancakes made from fermented lentil and rice batter) and a variety of meat and vegetable curries, served at their kitchen dining table. In the summer, enjoy your meal on their back patio. Please note that your host will be serving you and happy to chat as you are eating but won’t eat with you – so she can make sure you get your dosas piping hot!
