    For Indian food lovers. I'm excited to foward this for a new found friend, Sweta,who is an amazing Indian cook and teacher. I was referred to her from this listserve and was so glad to have taken her classes. She's well versed on all dietary restrictions,cheffing and nutrition. And of course the food was delicious. Her goat milk Chai was the best ive ever tasted. Perfect for this weather. She helped me set up my pantry to be ready to whip up amazing dishes in no time, from pots to spices. Best of all she emailed me all the information and provided follow up at no extra charge to assure I was successful. She does groups and one classes. Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in recommending Sweta.



FAQs


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

I talk to the prospective student about their likes & dislikes in the foods they enjoy... and work with them to create a menu of items we will prepare when they arrive. I will provide all the ingredients, the recipes & we will cook from scratch. It will be a total hands on experience for my students. Obviously, they get to take home everything they make! :)


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

I do not have a formal college education in this field. What I do have is loads of experience & loads of friends & family backing me in this venture.

i have been cooking since I was 12.. and now with a family that consistently prefers my home food to restaurants.. I think that is certification enough to put myself out there! :)


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

Yes, all my classes are priced at $200/person/class.

the class goes from 1-2 hours. And this price includes ingredients, recipes & the food you take home. Apart from this, for a whole week after the class, I am available to guide you through glitches & to help out with any questions you may have.


How did you get started teaching?

Friends suggested that I should look into teaching, so I decided to explore that as an option.. and I am happy to say, the people that came by as students.. came from as far as 20-25 miles & left so happy that they recommended me to more of their friends! 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with mom’s looking to convert to vegetarian-ism; care givers of patients whose dietary needs have changed, and mom’s of picky eaters! :)


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Sometimes, experience can trump over certifications. Give a chance to experienced people once in a while! :)


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

No question is “stupid”. As a student, Please ask, any question you may have! It is my duty as a teacher to answer them to the best of my ability.
