What’s it all about?

Have you ever been daunted by the spices in your cupboard or wanted to learn the many different ways in which they can be used? Masala Dabba is here to demystify the spices and help you embark on your culinary journey of the Indian subcontinent.

What will we cover?

We invite you to come and smell the aroma, feel the texture, and taste the spices. During the class you will begin to develop your understanding of spices, how to use them and to create complex flavours that seem so tricky to get right. You will also be able to dabble in some of the spices and see how easy it is to rustle up some yummy masala chai and snack, using your spice box.
