Techniques Class- Indian Cooking

Your Local Store

Sunday, February 13th
Call your local store for time

I’ve attended a few of these free Williams-Sonoma techniques classes in the past, and they’re  quite informative and enjoyable. If all goes as planned, I’ll be at this weekend’s class brushing up on the basics of Indian cuisine. They’ll be covering the regional differences, essential spices, must-haves for Indian cooking and wines to serve with spicy foods.

If you can’t make it this weekend, or Indian cuisine isn’t quite your thing, click here to see what else is on the schedule for February.
