**** Bibi's Indian Cookery Classes are proud winners of the 'Cambridge Sustainable Foods' BRONZE Business Standard Award****
Authentic 1 to 1 Indian cookery lessons in the Ely /Cambridge area . We will teach you how to cook delicious indian food completely from scratch using traditional methods.
PERSONALISED & BESPOKE - To provide a more personal experience our lessons are private, so the only people present at your lesson will be you and any friends/family you are cooking with present. We will also consult with you about the kinds of dishes you would like to do and design the menu accordingly.
Vegan? Vegetarian? Gluten Free? we can accomodate all types of diet on all lessons.
Please note spice levels can also be tailored to your taste, a korma doesn't have to be mild, and a dansak doesn't have to be hot! These are just restaurant guides for their customers, there is no 'set in stone' level of heat a dish must have!
AFFORDABLE - There is an initial fee for the first participant, but friends/spouse etc can join you for a small extra fee. So when the total fee is shared between participants we are (possibly by far) the most affordable cookery classes in the region. We usually require you to supply most of the man ingredients, but this means you get to take home a huge feast for the family, and your ingredients will rarely cost more than around £15.
For At home lessons children are welcome to join in FREE.
FLEXIBLE - We don't have set times and dates for lessons, because you will be the only course participants we will arrange the lesson according to your (and ours!) diary . Need to postpone your lesson? no problem, just try and let us know asap.
LOCATION - We can come out to you so you can take the lesson from your own kitchen (subject to distance, please enquire with your postcode), or you can come to us in Ely
ONLINE - We also now run 1 to 1 Cooking Coaching via Zoom! These work in a similar way; we will arrange a suitable date/time for you, then discuss the dishes you'd like, then i will send you your ingredient list. On the day you will login via the zoom link sent to you and I will talk you through as you cook. (Your friends/family can join in free!). All in person lessons can be changed to online if you prefer.
Our lesson *gift vouchers make ideal gifts for birthdays or other occasions. The voucher receiver can then contact us to arrange a suitable date/ time for their lesson and discuss dishes. We are very flexible on dates and times, subject to diary availability.
Eco-friendly Business Pledge- - As holder of the Cambridge Sustainable Foods' BRONZE Business Standard Award ,as well as promoting sustainable food through our classes, we endeavour to use locally sourced ingredients and our catering is delivered plastic-free . Hot food is delivered in large cooking pots, which we will collect the next day. Disposable items for cold buffets are kept to an absolute minimum, but where used are of compostible material. Cookery Class students are asked to bring glass or other non plastic dishes for transporting their food home (and it will taste all the better from not being transported in sweaty plastic too!). We have also removed red meat from our catering menus. Our cookery classes also do not use red meat.
We also educate our learners on food waste and what can be done with any leftover ingredients or food to reduce waste.
Terms and conditions.
