As March Break wraps up and the kids head back to school, many will be enthralled by their winter break cooking experiences and kitchen stories. A couple days ago I was at Whole Foods March Break Chef Camp for the Spices of India session, to teach the kiddies about spices. As I walked into the room, these clever little munchkins were cooking up Samosas and Tandoori Chicken with my friends Amanda and Rose. Impressive!
Even though I was enthused by their excitement and liking to the spices, I really shouldn’t be all that surprised. Over the years, we’ve run a number of Indian cooking classes for kids and have had a handful of aspiring teenage chefs join our adult classes—all wanting to learn authentic Indian cuisine!
A few weeks back, I spoke to Victor Nerenberg on the Indo-Canadian Report at Radio Canada International about how we’ve had excited young chefs in our classes, amongst other Indian cooking techniques. Listen to the radio clip.
