A meal in India is not a series of courses like in the West – the emphasis is much more on the main course, which will contain at least three dishes, the satisfying subtlety is in the balance between these, the way one dish complements another. On this course you will learn how to balance the flavours of fish and Indian spices as well as cooking one of Rick’s favourite fish curries, meen kulambu.

A fantastic day. Nick and the team were fantastic. I have really learnt a lot and am inspired to try more dishes at home! My confidence has gone from 2 to 10!
Friendly and good instructors. I’m a pretty good cook but I learnt things of value.
Loved the day, left feeling knowledgeable, confident and full of lovely food.
It was a fabulous course. The recipes were clearly demonstrated. The atmosphere was relaxed and everyone we met went out of their way to make the whole experience wonderful.
A really brilliant day, a perfect mixture of serious cookery demonstrations, good humour, useful tips, excellent food and splendid wine!
