On a cold wintery Saturday afternoon in March we had an enthusiastic group of participants join Arvinda’s Curries, Curries & More Curries cooking class in Toronto at Nella Cucina. Although spring is (finally!) in the air, Arvinda’s curries indeed helped us get through our terribly cold Canadian winter this year!

We had a lovely lady, Laura attend the class with her father for a ‘daddy-daughter’ cooking class. Being an avid Indian food lover and author of the blog Cook, Wine & Thinker Laura jumped right in to help us make our winter curries menu and snapped away photos throughout the class.
