This August, chef Vanie Padayachee is taking her ‘Cooking with Spices’ class to Leopard’s Leap. Offering the opportunity to take part on Wednesday, 14 August 2013 (Evening Class and Dinner), this is not to be missed if you want to learn the secrets of spice from this master Indian chef.
Join The Spice Guru on a journey of tempering and blending spices while she shares a few of her family secrets and recipes. Born and raised in Durban, her insatiable interest in food started whilst watching her parents, both great cooks, preparing exotic Indian dishes for family gatherings. Her cuisine is also strongly influenced by the rich diversity of cultures found in SA.
Using local and seasonal produce you will be grinding, blending, chopping and cutting spices to stir up a colourful and fragrant Durban Chicken Curry, Indian Fried Bread (Roti), light and fluffy Basmati Rice, Fresh Tomato Sambals and Cucumber Raita.
The cooking classes take place in the state-of-the-art Leopard’s Leap kitchen, which accommodates 22 students per class. Each student has his/her own cooking station, with individual stove and utensils. Large-screen television sets give a clear picture of the chef’s instructions and techniques, while each student receives a printed recipe to apply the newly acquired cooking skills at home. Duration is approximately two hours per class.
Meals are complemented by Leopard’s Leap wines best suited to the food prepared, as selected by Leopard’s Leap Cellarmaster, Eugene van Zyl.
