Summer cookery class at Mint Leaf Lounge

Mint Leaf Lounge is offering Indian food enthusiasts a summer cookery masterclass that will teach students how to approach seasonal summer produce, particularly seafood, with a view to entertaining.

The half-day course aims to show keen cooks how to prepare dishes for barbecues, alfresco meals or summer parties. It starts at 7am with a visit to Billingsgate fish market and an explanation of the different fish and seafood on offer. After a quick breakfast, students will be treated to a practical cooking demonstration at Mint Leaf Lounge, led by head chef Dhayalan Paul. They will then be invited to eat the food they have cooked for lunch. Before leaving, each guest will be given a goodie bag containing a recipe booklet, a selection of key Indian spices, and a £50 voucher for use at one of the Mint Leaf restaurants.

The cookery class costs £175 per person, with a maximum of 10 students per class. To book a place, contact
