Mamta’s Kitchen Classes 2012

Last year, we ran a few classes to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Mamta’s Kitchen. We’ve just noticed the site has recently passed the 10,000,000 hits mark and this has nudged us into scheduling some more dates, as we’ve been promising for a while.

  • Class size is limited to 4 students. They will be joined for the meals by Mamta’s little helpers, Pete and Kavey, and possibly one or two other family members for dinner.
  • As the class is being held in a domestic kitchen, with a single oven and stove top, students will be working together to create the dishes and will need to take turns to participate. But don’t worry, there will be plenty of hands on experience throughout the day.
  • The (Luton) address will be provided on confirmation of booking. Plenty of (free) parking is available. Alternatively, you can train to Luton station which is a short bus/ taxi ride from our house. We may be able to collect you from the station if we can coordinate your arrival times (and drop you back afterwards).
  • Our first few classes included a range of meat, fish and vegetable dishes. The last one we ran was pescetarian (fish and vegetables only). Please let us know what you are looking for, as the exact choice of dishes for these 2 dates has not yet been finalised.
  • We will need at least 3 attendees booked in order to run any given date. Talk to us about our discounts for booking more than one place in a class.
  • We can also offer private classes, where we can accommodate up to 5 and can adjust the contents of the class to suit your needs.

    I’m sure the people who come along to the classes in August and September will enjoy them just as much as I did last November.

    I remember making and eating those gorgeous stuffed aubergines shown in the photos. Must cook those at home soon.


    I do love aubergines Indian style. Somehow the spices intensify rather than hide their natural flavour… so glad you enjoyed and loved your blog post review.

    The experience of my day in Mamta’s (actual!) kitchen was excellent too.

    I certainly ate a lot of delicious food – as you would expect under Mamta’s supervision – but learnt so much as well. For us anglophiles it is also lovely to be reassured that some things you have been doing previously were correct!

    My A4 binders of Mamta’s Kitchen Recipes seem to be ever increasing with more recipes ever evolving!


    John, it was such a pleasure to have you attend the class. So glad you enjoyed.

    You get to cook lunch AND dinner? Wow! Darling, last year you forgot to send me a plane ticket, I’m still waiting.. 😉


    Yeah, light lunch, huge dinner, lots of tasty treats and lots of tips along the way. Can’t you plan a UK holiday around this? 😉
