Cooking Classes Calgary : Glory Of India
Aweekend class with chef Jassie Bakshi gets you out of your kitchen comfort zone and into cooking Indian food. On Saturday mornings in downtown Calgary, the heady scent of cumin wafts around a bustling crowd at the Glory of India. This 30-strong group has gathered together with one purpose: to learn the secrets of making perfect butter chicken. Cooking Classes Calgary - The group is seated, lecture-style, in the restaurant’s main dining area and met by Jassie Bakshi, an affable, gregarious Delhi native, owner of the restaurant and longtime veteran of the cooking industry. The next few hours are an extremely comprehensive look at Indian cooking — from the history to the methods to the ingredients — while Bakshi demonstrates the techniques required to master the art of Indian cooking.

On the menu are vegetable pakoras, saag paneer (spinach with freshly made cheese), chicken tikka and tandoori chicken, and the crowd favourite, butter chicken in Calgary (which, incidentally, contains no butter). At home, you can use a whisk or your rubber gloves, but in my kitchen, you feel your food.Jassie Bakshi
