The Indian Cook School


Praveen & Swarna, multi-award-winning restaurateurs and chef, offer you a unique Indian cooking experience in Perth, Scotland. This one-day class masterfully combines hands-on cooking training, top quality produce and inspirational teaching as you are guided through the authentic dishes, spices, and stories from Praveen & Swarna’s home in South India. Your cook school experience includes plenty of time at your own individual cooking station creating dishes that you will then get to enjoy with a glass of wine or beer at the end of the session … there is always plenty to take home too!Never cooked Indian food before? Don’t worry! As Praveen & Swarna unravel the tales of their family spice farm in India and Praveen’s years in the hospitality trade, including luxury hotels Gleneagles and Turnberry, they will inspire you to enjoy your new cooking adventure, helping unleash your imagination and passion.

This truly unique opportunity can be purchased as a gift, perhaps to celebrate a special occasion. It is also successful in the work environment as a team-building exercise. Or maybe you simply want to treat yourself because it’s a fun way to spend a day! Whatever the reason, Praveen & Swarna are looking forward to welcoming you to Their Indian Cook School.
