Welcome to Mala's Indian Cooking Classes

Nutritionist and chef Mala Patel helps guide and refine culinary repertoires, creating homemade, multicourse Indian feasts during her classes. Combining comprehensive demonstrations with a hands-on cooking experience, balanced with an insightful understanding of the benefits of Indian cuisine and its relationship to good health in sessions such as 3 Week complete cooking session, Classic vegetarian cuisine, Classic non-vegetarian cuisine, Muglai feast, Street side foods from India, Snack and appetizers from India, South Indian Exotic Escape and Passage to North India. Small classes consisting of no more than 10 -12 chefs-in-training intimately explore chicken and veggie dishes flavored by aromatic spices, garlic, ginger, and green chilies. She says, "I don't classify myself as a gourmet chef - I'm a good cook and an even better teacher, and I teach from my heart, My specialty is simplifying food in a way that a novice could do it."

Our Customer Say

Mala is fabulous! She teaches her classes with humor, experience and is extremely prepared. You will love the experience! I highly recommend her class


Absolutely amazing class!!! We learned so much and Mala is a pure joy to be around. We will be attending many more classes with her


Mala accommodated us for a last minute North Indian cooking class. We learned FIVE different recipes, and she gave a lot of useful general cooking tips that could be applied to any recipe. Great class!

Mala is so great! I was worried that we would just be watching the whole time, but that was not the case. It's a great hands on class, and the food is amazing. You will love it!
