With a long standing track record in Asian cuisine, through our culinary education team, Coriander Leaf is aiming to act in a thought leadership capacity and be at the forefront of innovative culinary experiences and learning. Whether it is conventional cooking classes, developing new and innovative courses, expanding to the online cooking community, or delivering a distinct variety of unique and memorable cooking experiences, Coriander Leaf has always pushed the boundaries and created a reputation for culinary excellence.

At our core is Asian cuisine, yet this is the tip of the iceberg in terms of the depth and breadth of culinary courses we aim to provide.

We design menus that provide our guests with a strong grounding. In this way, our guests learn specific dishes as well as the insights and techniques necessary to become an insider in the cuisines of Asia! We emphasize home cooking and stick mainly to dishes that one can replicate at home. Our cooking studios are equipped with home cooking appliances reinforcing our commitment to teaching our guests something they will incorporate into their standard repertoire. Each class presents an integrated menu that can be prepared at home rather than a random selection of dishes.

South Asian Classics
Demo Class

From the royal kitchens of the Moghul Emperors to your own...

Despite their many differences, Iranian and Arabic cultures share the culinary tradition of marking special occasions by serving guests with a central dish of 'pulao' - a rich mix of rice, spices and meats.  There are abundant and geographically dispersed variations on this theme, from 'pilaf' in Spain to 'biryani' in South Asia.

The Mughal kitchens in 16th& 17th century India gave this dish it's own unmistakable Indian spicing.  In this course we bring to you a light and simplified version of this royal and festive dish.  Served with a few accomapniments, your biryani can mark special occassions or make a satisfying family meal.
