Indian Cookery School

Learn to cook authentic Indian food in our home, for yours. The Spice Club has built a loyal following of food fanatics who enjoy the unique home-cooked flavours and the diverse dishes available in Indian cuisine (which you have come to know and love at our events). The most common question asked by Spice Club guests is “How do you make this dish?“ At our intimate cookery classes, you will be invited to be part of the family, and learn to cook the dishes you love to eat, the way we learnt to cook them. We will divulge the well-guarded secrets that have been handed down the generations to elevate your cooking from “meh” to “wow” (or “wow” to “oh my gosh”!). Whether you are a beginner or an experienced cook wanting to venture deeper into Indian cuisine, our classes provide everything from the ingredients to the instruction- allowing you to make a complete Indian meal from start to finish. Our classes are held in our private kitchen in Whitefield, North Manchester. Read what people are saying about our cookery classes here.
