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.

Moroccan II Demo Class

Moroccan cuisine, which is especially magnificient – based on the original Berbers, echoes of Spain & Portugal, but it’s strongest origins are from that of Ancient Persia. Famous for it’s couscous, multilayered pies & delicately flavoured tagines; and it’s extraordinary marriage of spicy sweet and savoury.

 

The history of this food is that of the Middle East. Dishes carry the triumphs and glories, the defeats, the loves and sorrows of the past. We owe some to an event, or to one man; the Caliph who commissioned it, the poet who sang it, or the Imam who fainted on receiving it. – Claudia Roden
