    Chef Paro provided excellent communication prior to the class! She ensured if I had any dietary restrictions or allergies and was very conscientious to include me in the decision making during the process of preparing the grilled Salmon steaks and vegetables. The class was personalized and the chef is very knowledgeable; prepared; and efficient. She encouraged me to keep it simple and delicious! I learned new things and enjoyed a delicious meal (with leftovers to take home)! I would recommend this!

    Unlike any other cooking course. Comforts of her own kitchen.. and you even get to have a nice 4 course lunch.

    I loved the experience. Chef’s knowledge about the dishes and clear guide for using equipment was so very helpful. I was amazed at how fast a great, healthy meal could be made using fresh, ingredients. I’m sure to take another class. Great experience. I cannot wait to make my own chicken kabob. Butter chicken. Pulao and peas. So exciting and great easy instructions and I loved the thoughtful choices for my first class with Paro.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I work with beginners,intermediate and advance students. I try to give a brief summary and origin of the recipe, source of ingredients and how to use them to get maximum flavors and then teach the techniques of the cooking like sear,braise,grill,poach etc and give tips how to cook best out of it. We do hands on and demonstrative classes.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Practical Experience of 15years in the kitchen & teaching community classes for kids, teens & adults in different countries like Japan, India, Germany and USA and working as Culinary Expert with Professionals WilliamsSonoma. Conducted at various places Speciality Cooking Workshop ,Small Corporate events , team building,  Dinner Dates, Couple Cooking class, Birthday parties and special events.Worked as a ChefInstructor with different private and public schools in Bay Area.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge per hour basis and per person and sometimes charge as single groups when we have larger group of 15people or more .Rates depends on hours, no of person and the recipe you like to learn.After the class you enjoy a generous food tasting.
