“There’s nobody like The Spice Queen – Kumud Ghandi is a gastronomic guru!” As featured in The Times magazine

Why we love it

A recent study published in the Journal of Positive Psychology has found that cooking and baking can make you feel more relaxed and happier in your everyday life. London living often leaves little time to cook, as work or social events take preference. So why not mix in some socialising to the kitchen? Whether you’re a Dim Sum or Kofta fan, or it’s home-made pasta that takes your fancy, there’s something for everyone at this one-day cookery course.

What's Included?

  • Step into the professional kitchen with a Full-Day Cookery Course for one at The Cooking Academy
  • Design your own cookery course by choosing your favourite cuisine to learn about
  • Choose from a variety of themes such as: Middle Eastern, Vietnamese, Vegetarian, Vegan and Italian (to name a few)
  • Receive a starter pack including all the spices used in the course for you to recreate dishes

Exclusive to TRULY

  • Take home a set of complimentary silver measuring spoons

Description

Kumud Gandhi built her reputation by catering for the rich and famous, including clients such as The Prince of Wales, Nelson Mandela, Madonna, The Royal Academy and Fashion TV. Her status as ‘The Spice Queen’ (a nickname coined by Nick Coffer at the BBC) and the piqued interest in copying her cooking style les to the creation of The Cooking Academy.

The school was founded in 2010, inspired by her family roots. Her mother’s family are chemists in India, and her father’s are spice merchants. This blend of science and an appreciation of spices stimulated her unique approach to food, inspiring her to cook with herbs and spices for nutritional and medicinal benefit.

Now Kumud’s expertise is not only shared with class attendees and radio listeners, her food and teachings can be found in her cookbook, A Cupboard Full of Spices. This book is designed to help you get to grips with spices, their characteristics, health benefits and their practical uses in cooking. It is a compendium of spices, used to create authentic Indian recipes that have been passed down through many generations.

During your Full-Day Cookery Course, you’ll have the opportunity of cooking some of Ghandi’s famed recipes by selecting your favourite cuisine to cook, including Middle Eastern, Vietnamese, Vegetarian, Vegan and Italian (to name a few). You’ll learn how to prepare ingredients and create a selection of plates under the theme of your choice. You’ll receive a starter pack, including all spices and recipes used throughout your course, as well as an exclusive gift of silver measuring spoons to take home and use in your kitchen.
