Cooking Class Reviews By Customers

I took a class here and it was wonderful! I learned a lot about techniques and spice use. After the class, I was able to purchase just a few items and make four different dishes that wowed my family! I'm already sighed up for another class! I must say that the owners were great hosts and the quality of theirs products and services will have me coming back !

Savor India Cooking Class, June 2012
My wife and I took the Savor India Cooking class at Ethnic Foods Company and it was FANTASTIC! The food, the history, the stories, and the atmosphere were wonderful. REALLY GOOD spices! Very fun. We highly recommend visiting the store and attending a cooking class! We plan to go back for more of everything – spices, recipes, and classes!

This place is fantastic! The store sells authentic ethnic spices, blends, foods, cookbooks (mostly Indian/Asian) and offers ethnic cooking classes! Just went there tonight for the first time -- bought a Living Social coupon. It was a small, fun, intimate cooking class that felt more like a family dinner. And the food was amazing. It was one of the best experiences ever -- we were so impressed we not only purchased spices, but future classes. Prices seem are very reasonable, esp compared to Penzeys in Mpls, which I think is a rip-off. Plus the owners taught the cooking classes and ran the store. I can't say enough good things about this little jewel of a place!
