Learn the secrets of great Indian cookery, and how to prepare a feast fit for an Indian wedding

You will be in good hands for your demonstration day. Minal, our Head Chef and former mentee of Gordan Ramsay will be hosting the day alongside husband, Bobby, who is responsible for Front of House.

Your demonstration day will start with a quick introduction by Bobby and then you will meet Minal and be briefed on the dishes you will see made during the day.

Then, it’s into the kitchen, where you can watch the dishes being prepared, find out the real chef’s tricks of the trade, a number of how spices work together… all set in a real restaurant kitchen. This is a great chance to see a top chef in action and ask plenty of questions.

During the demonstration Bobby & Minal will guide you through their experience of growing up with food and their life within Prashad, the heritage behind the recipes and the role of food in Indian culture.

A feast will be prepared in front of your eyes to delve into at lunchtime including starters, curries, rice, pickle and dessert.

Throughout the day, there will be plenty of opportunities to retire to the restaurant, sample the dishes and make notes about the dishes you want to make at home. 

Then, after a busy day, every attendee is given a copy of our second recipe book titled ‘Prashad at Home’ and a take away meal for one.


Price per person £130, Limited to 8 places per event. Start time: 9.30am until 2.30pm. Special rates for group bookings are available.
