October 2019 update: These classes are currently on hold, but may be resumed at some point.
Learn how to cook Indian food with chef Mike Henry at The Victoria hotel in Ajijic.
Mike will walk you through how to prepare a full-course Indian meal in the hotel’s kitchen for you and up to nine other guests. Learn about the history of the food and how to use the ingredients, which are easily found lakeside, to create its signature flavors.
A sample menu might include:
- Curried carrot and ginger soup with cumin croutons
- North Indian vegan curry
- Murg tikka
- Basmati rice
- Chapati (flatbread)
- Carrot halva dessert
Classes, which last two to three hours, are held once a month on Sundays from 5-8 p.m. The next class will be held August 19, 2018. Check their website for additional details about the class. Tickets are $450 pesos and available in advance only at Wilde’s. The hotel’s garden bar opens at 4 p.m. if you want to arrive early to purchase pre-dinner cocktails and meet new people.
Other cuisines aside from Indian will likely be added in the future and with enough interest, the classes might increase to more than once a month.
