Inspired by the fresh array of Asian eateries that have popped up Emily brings you this South Asian vegetarian & vegan cookery course to show you how to cook some of those delicately spiced and fragrant, or more fiery aromatic dishes at home. Ingredients you work with range from ginger, cumin, cardamom, fenugreek & curry leaves to tamarind, mango and coconut (the oil, cream or coconut flesh) blended with both those familiar and those less well known vegetables finds from the Asian supermarkets to celebrate some of the wide-ranging flavours from the Indian subcontinent.
Dishes you make range from the classic South Asian breakfast dish- Masala dosas (ground rice and lentil crepes filled with spiced mashed potato served with a beautiful sambar); to bhajis (onion, mushroom, aubergines, okras or bottle gourd cooked in a carefully spiced blend of gram and rice flour and served with a mango relish that you also make ) and kalada (chickpeas cooked in a blend of spices , tomato and a little coconut milk and curry leaves) . You finish off with parathas which can be stuffed with spinach, beetroot or squash – all good to feast on. As with most our courses you can expect the odd sample of food or drop of vegan craft ale to help round off your experience, and there is always plenty for you to take away.

Emily Carey has been teaching people to cook classic and original dishes for over 8 years, driven by her passion to make home cooking more widely accessible.
Her childhood, in a home where great food, especially Mediterranean cooking was cherished, started her off on a journey of discovery and exploration. She developed an eye for good recipes and learning what foods work well together, adding to this a flair for bringing food and people together, and that became the basis for Get Cooking.
With a simple start in 2010, and the opening of an exciting and unique venue in Farsley in 2016, she has continually incorporated fresh ideas into the business.
The ingredients, an apron and copies of recipes are all provided.
You just need to bring your own large plastic containers to take away the dish(es) you make!

All the dishes we made were fantastic and I learned loads (Andy)
A very enjoyable experience (Josh)
The facilities are second to non -everything you’d need and more. Felt a little ‘bake-off esque’ with a lovely wooden bench to work from with built in cookers and hobs and all equipment to hand. (Daniela)
Made to feel completely welcome by both Emily & Adele. Excellent course, excellent food😊 (Jim)
