We all love a great Indian meal don’t we? Especially if a celebration’s in order. And we’re pretty good at arranging celebrations, so when we heard about Amarpal (pictured) and his team we just had to get involved. We know that loads of our groups either order an Indian take away or go out to an Indian restaurant while they’re with us for the weekend, so why not make an activity out of it? And that’s exactly what this is – Amarpal and his team will guide you through the process of preparing and cooking a mouth watering Indian meal, and then of course you get to eat it. And you all get plenty of gorgeous food, so no need to order that take away now!

You can either go along to Amarpal’s catering kitchen and take your finished food away with you in takeaway containers, or we can arrange for him to come to your accommodation. Most groups enjoy having this experience set up in their accommodation, and we turn up with everything you’ll need, such as workstations, cookers, chopping boards, pans, fuel and of course all the ingredients

All your group will learn how to cook some fantastic Samosas with dips to start. While your group are enjoying the samosas Amarpal will do a demonstration of his superb culinary skills for you. Then it’s onto preparing the Saffron Pilau Rice and Channa Masala. Next we’ll move onto the preparation and cooking of a chicken dish or Paneer dish as a vegetarian option if preferred. We can’t stress enough how gorgeous your food will taste. And don’t worry if you’ve never even picked up a spatula before. Amarpal and his team are with you every step of the way, and he’ll get you creating dishes you wouldn’t have thought possible. And if you’ve got a particular dish that you always wanted to learn how to cook we’ll do our very best to arrange that for you. And you can choose to have it as hot and spicy as you wish!

Generally there will be 2 people per workstation, and everyone who takes part gets a certificate of completion. We’ll run it as a competition between you all, and we’ll even give the winning work station a bottle of bubbly

This activity goes fabulously with our Real Ale Experiences, and why not think about getting a Butler in the Buff or Butlerette to serve the food and drinks to your group?!
