Class Description:

Did you now that a curry dish is simply defined as a dish with a sauce seasoned with ground spices?  Tonight’s class will show you that curry dishes can be so many styles and types, all of which will take you on a culinary journey!  You’re in for a treat tonight as Chef Sumana Dey teaches us how to simplify and take the mystery out of cooking dishes made with various types of curry, or ‘ground spices.’  She’ll help you understand how flavors can change and have complexity just by creating seasoned mixes that are peculiar to a particular region of the world!  Sumana has a passion for taking simple ingredients from plain to magnificent with her artistic use of spices and, tonight, you’ll find out how it really can be done “the right way” in your own kitchen. You’ll get in on a little cooking time alongside this engaging professional as she teaches essential culinary techniques and shows you how to prepare mouthwatering curry dishes from around the world such as Indian Tarka Daal Curry (a luscious lentil dish), Moroccan Chickpeas Curry that is also made with eggs and tomatoes, a Brazilian Maqueca de Camarao (prawn coconut stew), Creamy Jamaican Ground Beef Curry and to end the evening on a sweet note, we’ll enjoy Indian Sweet Mango Yogurt. Come expand your culinary horizons as you explore the exotic and aromatic ways to prepare curry – the right way!
