Cooking from Different Traditions: Tastes of India

three dishes of food and spoons of spices

Savour a menu featuring some of my favourite Indian dishes. We'll start with vegetable pakoras with ginger & tamarind dipping sauce. We will also prepare a fragrant yellow lentil, coconut & cilantro dhal. To accompany the dhal we will prepare a quinoa & basmati pilaf.

Join Chef Bruce Wood on this cooking adventure. Registrants will receive a list of ingredients to purchase in advance of the class so that they can cook along with the demonstration.

At age 17, Bruce Wood remembers savouring a spicy bowl of authentic Jamaican goat curry and, in his words, “seeing the world in colour.” It was the first step on a path that led to a career as a chef that has spanned 35 years, many kitchens, farms & classrooms, and a life spent sharing his passion and love for local, seasonal and sustainable food.

Bruce is now working as a consultant, running classes in people's homes, writing recipes for companies like Beau's All Natural Brewery and Bryson farms appearing on stage and in the kitchens at food festivals & special events. He can be reached on Facebook at Bruce Wood Culinary Consulting.
