Indian cooking workshop at CERES Kitchen
Beguiled by biriyani?

It’s no secret why Aditi Daware’s family and friends are drawn to her Melbourne home – she makes ridiculously irresistible Indian food and people just appear at her door.

Aditi, who learnt how to cook from her grandmother growing up in Pune, in central India, is returning to CERES to share her family’s food secrets in April and October.

Indian food, and there are many “Indian food’s”, is one of the world’s great cuisines.

If you’ve ever had your taste buds beguiled by a biriyani or mesmerised by a masala dosa and wondered why Indian food tastes so good, you’re not alone – search Google and you’ll find a multiplicity of thoughts, theories and spice-driven speculations.

A scientific study by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology in Jodhpur concluded that Indian cuisine has a counter-intuitive approach to food pairing where, unlike in European cooking, ingredients with strongly opposing flavour profiles like red chilli and cumin are deliberately paired to create complex tastes that our palates love but can’t quite work out why.

If you love the spices and smells of Indian cooking and want to know more, Aditi Daware (that’s Aditi above) delights in demystifying ingredient combinations and teaches the skills to make your own authentic Indian food at home.

And the wonderful bonus is that at the end of Aditi’s workshop everyone sits down together for a delicious Indian feast.

Aditi’s Indian Cooking Workshop is on April 7th and October 20th.
