Announcing FINEST CULINARY WORKSHOPS with RMG. You might have read about my recent association with Finest Journeys of India. More on that soon, but let me tell you about something else I have cooked up with the founder of Finest and my long-time friend, Savio. All the online study and education we embarked on with food in the last year, brought the realization that online workshops allow us to transcend geographical borders to go anywhere, explore anything. And I believe this will continue to thrive even as borders reopen. Savio and I are excited to present a new kind of travel and discovery with carefully curated workshops. Our aim is to transport you to the far reaches of our country and bring fascinating morsels of our culinary heritage right to your screen! Join FINEST CULINARY WORKSHOPS to meet, learn from and cook with subject matter experts like spice growers, food producers, chefs and home cooks right in your own home and get a window into the finest spice, ingredients and delicacies from various parts of India! These workshops will be multi-sensory experiences. On signing up, each participant will also receive tasting kits containing the ingredients in focus so that you can recreate the sensory experience in your own home!
And for our first Finest Culinary Workshop, we are starting with Saffron!Something that I have come to appreciate thanks to Afan Basu of the Basu Kesar company who I connect with through my explorations with the Spice Chronicles. Until I connected with him, I never thought of Saffron beyond that precious little box we bought from a store. But after hearing about the journey of Saffron, I understand why my Dadi kept her Kesar under lock and key and why my Bua carried a dibbi in her batua throughout my cousin's wedding feast preparations!So without further ado, let me invite you to be part of an exclusive chance to experience the Saffron Harvest journey from the Saffron fields of Pampore in Kashmir straight to your plate! Register for the Saffron Harvest Workshop for a deep dive into the Farm to plate journey of this legendary spice with Afan Basu, scion of the Basu Kesar Family and yours truly! Workshop Date: 19 Dec 2021. For more information, write to email@example.com.
Hope you enjoy these delicious offerings we're lining up for you! Watch this space we have workshops like never before coming featuring chillies, salts and more!
Happy Festive season!
