Hip Cooks | Shortcut to Nirvana

 
For Christmas last our dear friends Tim & Katherine gifted us with a gift certificate to a cooking class at HipCooks in Seattle. We looked over the class schedule a ton, and weren't sure what we wanted to embark on. Since Eric's the cook of the family, I ultimately deferred to whatever he found the most interesting, because I knew we'd just have fun doing it, I didn't think it really mattered what it was exactly.


So, when I planned for my week off of work - we signed up for the Indian food class and began to get super excited about it! The class consists of one teacher, an assistant and 14 classmates all working together to make a tasty meal! you get to hear about how each dish is prepared, and you can walk around and help/learn wherever you want to. It's a really cool experience, and we had SO much fun! After all the cooking, we sat down at a HUGE community table and ate our food together remarking on what we liked best, or what recipes we will take home with us and use!

We are super excited to go back and would totally reccommend Hip Cooks if you're even remotely interested in a cooking class. They have storefronts in Seattle, Portland, LA and San Diego!

In our class, we learned how to make Mango Lassis, Samosas, Papadams, chutneys, raita, Tikka Masala, Saag Paneer, Fish Curry and Mojitos!

It was all super duper tasty, I think we will probably make the Tikka Saag the most!
