Our Hands on Indian Cookery Session is run by the very talented Sharmini Thomas. Sharmini, originally from Kerala, has been teaching Indian cuisine in York for the past 18 years. She is a presenter and judge at the annual York Food and Drink Festival and has won the ‘Yorkshire Vision Curry Contest’ competing against several reputable York curry houses.
Sharmini is keen to pass on the art of Indian cooking which is typically handed down from generation to generation in India. As well as teaching techniques and guiding students through her recipes she also provides a deep understanding of the origin and health benefits of the spices being used.
