Det skal I lave

We will learn how to make the most well-loved Gujarati Dishes, something you have never tried in any Indian restaurant before.
I'm the author of a cookbook titled "From Gujarat, With Love." I designed this book to be a unique expression of our culinary identity. To make this happen, I've worked with a world-class celebrity photographer Jonathan Lovekin to shoot food photos. Ultimately, my mission is to teach and share these recipes with the entire world—from my kitchen to yours. Thus, the cooking experience simultaneously features a clever and unique combination of distinctive, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors.
The experience will start with a glass of wine where guests can mingle. And then, we will prepare two famous Gujarati appetizers, which Gujarati cuisine is known for, and masala chai (Tea). Gujarat is the KING of appetizers, and these appetizers are heart-healthy and a gift from Gujarat to the rest of the world. Not to mention, I have never met a single person who says that I'm not a fan of Gujarati Snacks. That's IMPRESSIVE!! Once you taste everyone's favorite Gujarati snacks at my cooking experience, you will know why everyone is raving about these mouth-watering snacks.
After preparing the food, we will have a pleasant sit-down tasting session to taste the appetizers with masala chai that compliments these appetizers.

Hi, I'm Vina, and I am from the colorful state of Gujarat, India. I now live in Silicon Valley, CA. I have deep knowledge of Gujarati food. Over the last 3 year, I've written a cookbook titled 'From Gujarat, With Love.' it's available for pre-order now at Amazon. My recipes have been passed down over generations so i can say that they are 100% authentic. It will be a one-of-a-kind cooking experience, and I'd love to share it with as many enthusiastic cooks as I can.

Her skal du være

Weather permitting, we will have our meal in the backyard that boasts a 180-degree view of Silicon Valley, overlooking the mountains and beautiful vineyards. The cooking sessions will take place in our lovely home. We also have lovely walking trails and local wineries should you want to do that before the experience

Vina & Haresh are the most wonderful hosts anyone could wish for. I couldn't recommend this experience highly enough. Not only was the food amazing but the atmosphere they create and the passion they have to share their culture and knowledge is extremely special. Experiences like this should be bottled so the whole world gets to enjoy it.

Vina is an excellent host and teacher. We successfully made complicated dishes as Vina was able to break down the recipe into easy steps. The dinner paired with wine turned out amazing as well.

This event started in one of the most gorgeous homes I have ever been in. The cooking set up was perfect and I can not oversell the view. It was lovely backyard to look out over Silicon Valley. The host and her husband were an amazing couple that invited us into their home and made us feel like family. We were entertained for 3+ hours with something like 6 different recipes. While that sounds like a lot, they were all tied together with repeating steps and styles that really enforced certain skills. I felt like I learned quite a bit. The class worked for different skill levels as well. My girlfriend and I own several Indian Cookbooks and felt like we grew those skills a ton! Especially because this was a different style of cooking then a lot of people get to experience. My parents were less experienced here but still had a blast! Through out the entire experience, we had wine and chatted about all manner of things. Not just the cuisine we were tasting but there life and how there cooking tied into that. Come hungry for this experience! You will have more then enough food!

We had such an amazing time with Vina and Harish. Vina taught us secrets and stories behind Gujarati cuisines with so much fun and patience. The love came out in the dishes. We requested to be taught Khandvi and she has us made extra for my husband's birthday! We finished it in no time. It was so yum. We had food in their deck outside which was splendid. Highly recommend this if you are in and around the bay area for whatever reason!!!!!! Can't wait to get our hands on her upcoming book.

Had a great time meeting Vina and her husband (they were very welcoming). The food was fantastic and very different to the traditional Indian food I am accustomed to. Plus the view was great from the patio while eating dinner and drinking wine.

This experience exceeded my expectations. The host was wonderful - kind, welcoming, and shared interesting stories. The food was delicious - totally different what what you find in a typical Indian restaurant in the US. The hospitality was warm and welcoming, and their house has an amazing view of Silicon Valley. I highly recommend it!
