Learn about and taste the spices and cuisine of the northern regions of India and Nepal. 

About this Class

Food can be a gateway into understanding a culture from the inside and breaking down stereotypes. People eat many of the same ingredients - eggs for instance - but they prep them differently.

Instructor Nadja Peschke will give you just a taste of her travels - India, Nepal, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, Spain - and the recipes she has collected. Her German heritage has "always lended an open-minded sense of food preparation and tastes."

You will learn the spices of the various northern regions of India to the extent that Nadja understands them applied in curries, eggs, and accompanied by basic flatbreads. You'll get a taste of Nepal and the fusion cuisine offered there. The momos class (day four) will include learning an intermediate technique with the dumpling wrapping.

  • Day 1: New Delhi, India - Spicy wok-scrambled eggs, aloo paratha, and Masala chai
  • Day 2: Amritsar, India - Curry with a naan or roti flatbread
  • Day 3: Chitwan, Nepal - Indian-Chinese fusion, honey-lemon ginger tea or fizzy lime soda
  • Day 4: Pokhara, Nepal - Momos (Nepali dumplings) with a dipping sauce, wok cucumber salad with black jeera seeds and a mango or banana lassi
