I started cooking Indian food when I first left home for job, tired of eating outside and missing food from my mom's kitchen. When I moved to Boston I started cooking more Indian dishes. While cooking Indian dishes I feel more connected to my mom and grandmother, by observing whom I learned cooking.
Me and my husband love to cook everyday and would be happy to serve our guest.

The host is really Talkative!! We talked a lot not only about food but also culture, current work, and people in USA. Her passion of loving food is awesome. Also I received great hospitality. We cooked Indian curry and put a lot of spices but it was not spicy at all. She considered my weakness for spicy food.

Apurva is a great teacher and chef and was thoughtful about teaching each step of the meal. She gave me tips on where to get ingredients and told me stories about the food and how to eat it. She and her husband were very friendly and we enjoyed a fantastic meal together, even packing leftovers for my husband and me to enjoy for lunch tomorrow. I'd highly recommend this experience for anyone wanting to learn Indian and/or vegetarian cooking.

This cooking class was absolutely phenomenal. Apurva is a delight and really made us feel welcome and comfortable. She was knowledgeable and patient, and made a seemingly intimidating experience fun and accessible. The food was so delicious! I cannot recommend this highly enough!

We loved our experience with Apurva! We felt very welcome in her home and loved the delicious chai tea at the beginning. The recipes (roti, curry, dal, dessert) were authentic and accessible and we cooked them later in the week with Apurva’s recipe hand-out to try out our skills. Would recommend for those new to Indian cooking!
