Learn how to cook Indian food

Indian chef and author Anita Sharma-James is launching a new series of Indian cookery lessons.

Anita, a director of Birmingham Press Club,will hold the events at the award-winning Mendi Restaurant in Wychbold, near Droitwich.
After giving a brief introduction to India and its food heritage, she will then demonstrate how to blend Indian spices – before giving her protégés hands-on experience at preparing their own Indian vegetarian starters, main course and breads.

She said: “After preparing their very own curries, breads and spice blends, people will then get the opportunity to enjoy a delicious meal served in an authentic tiffin box – the traditional Indian lunchbox.”
The family-friendly Mendi Restaurant, located on Worcester Road, Wychbold, specialises in vegetarian home cooking which offers authentic Indian cuisine.
Anyone wishing to join Anita for her Tiffin Tuesdays should phone 07764 686119 or email anitasharmajames@gmail.com.
They are being held from 11 am until 2 pm on September 19 and 26 and October 3.
The cost, to include lunch, is £65 per person or £50 for a booking of six or more.
