Last Wednesday my friends, Marsa and Tony celebrated their 5 year wedding anniversary with a cooking class taught by me! I was so excited when Marsa called up and wanted to hire me for the occasion. For their wedding reception, Marsa and Tony had invited their guests to take part in a cooking class and then feast on what they had made together. Marsa wanted to recreate this experience on their anniversary as a surprise for Tony.
We first all shared an appetizer of papri chaat and toasted champagne to the cutest couple. Tony was so surprised:)
Then I divided the 10 of us into groups and we got to cooking!
It was really fun and also a nice way for everyone to get to know each other. I love this picture of Marsa cracking up:
The guys got acquainted with the magic of ghee and cilantro:
Everyone did a really a great job pulling the meal together and finally we all sat down to eat.
On the menu:
peanut rice with lemon, coconut and dill
Marsa made a special beef curry and ordered in a few naans to round out the meal.
After our feast.......
I also made recipe booklets for everyone so that they could remember the night and make some of the dishes at home.
Thanks so much Marsa and Tony for including me in your celebration. It was a blast! xoxo
