6 hour class – £95 per person

Chorlton & Didsbury, 10am – 4pm

In the morning, learn how to transform everyday, local produce into a range of authentic Nepalese curries and side dishes – either ‘masu’ (chicken curry) or tarkari (vegetable curry), 3 varieties of ‘achhar’ (vegetable side dishes), a traditional dal (lentil soup) and perfect ‘bhat’ (fluffy white rice). By the time you all sit down to enjoy the fruits of your labours for lunch, you will be well equipped with the skills and knowledge to create tasty, Nepalese-style curries at home.Then in the afternoon learn how to make beautiful Nepalese momos, the traditional dumplings filled with beef and/or vegetables, along with traditional accompaniment tomato achhar (spicy Nepalese tomato pickle). Find out all about consistency and filling and how to fold the perfect dumpling.

This full-day Nepalese cooking workshop combines the key elements of both our ever-popular Dal Bhat (Nepalese curries & rice) workshop and our Momo (Nepalese dumplings) workshop, giving you a full 6 hours to luxuriate in all things Nepalese. The 6-hour format also provides more time for one-to-one tuition from Philippa, so that you can get your dishes just right, and build your cooking confidence.

Originally from Tibet, the Nepalese have adopted the momo as a national favourite. The streets of Nepal are lined with carts serving up momos on stainless steel plates, banana leaves or the ripped out pages of old school textbooks. Momo houses thrive selling nothing but these little parcels of tastiness. People don’t care where or how they get them, they just need their momo fix!

4 hour class – £70 per person

Chorlton & Didsbury, 10am – 2pm

Learn how to combine basic cooking skills and a few spices to create either ‘masu’ (chicken curry) or tarkari (vegetable curry), 3 varieties of ‘achhar’ (vegetable side dishes, a traditional dal (lentil soup) and perfect ‘bhat’ (fluffy white rice). By the end of the session, you should be well equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to continue to create tasty, Nepalese style curries at home. This 4-hour session will teach you how to transform everyday, local produce into a range of authentic Nepalese curries.

The main dish of Nepal is known as ‘dal bhat’. It is eaten by everyone in the country, twice a day, everyday. The literal translation of dal bhat is ‘lentil rice’, and it is these two components that are the cornerstones of the meal. Flavour and variety is added to the meal through the addition of curries and pickles, and every man, woman and child in the country will have their own style and specialist dishes. So, whilst it may sound like a very repetitive diet, in reality, it’s far from it. In fact, once you’ve tasted the dishes, and learned how to use the ingredients to make your own curries, you may even be tempted to follow suit!

We’re delighted to have Daniel delivering the session on Philippa’s behalf whilst she’s on maternity leave Daniel is Cooking Leader at Momo Cooking in the Wirral. He passionately delivers workshops to those wanting to learn and create Nepalese dishes across the North West. Dan’s appreciation of the Nepalese food and culture is infectious, so prepare to leave inspired by these recipes and his cooking tips!
