Meet the Chefs
An experienced, traditional cook, born and raised in North London, Kirna draws on her Gujarati and Parsi heritage to amass a huge variety of authentic, regional Indian recipes that are fresh and flavoursome, by using herbs and spices to turn humble ingredients into beautiful dishes. Kirna will demystify spices and techniques, to enable her students to cook Indian food with confidence and achieve great results. She is a patient and relaxed tutor and will help you to easily create a repertoire of dishes that you would find in most Indian homes.
