*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Will be posted later

It's my pleasure to organize and invite you to a fun & aroma-filled Indian cooking afternoon, where we shall cook 6 dishes that are simple to make and great to serve. I learnt these from my mother, who taught Indian cooking for 30 years in Mumbai.

We will end our afternoon with an Indian apero, and dinner with wine, and then enjoy a game called 'The Great Indian Arranged Marriage'!

The fee for this event is CHF 50, payable in advance to avoid no-shows, as I need to prepare for the numbers joining us.
Your contribution would also be towards supporting an animal sanctuary in Costa Rica (www.rainsongsanctuary.com).

I look forward to your RSVP and to be your host this afternoon.

RSVP'd Yes: 3 (2 members and 1 guests)
  • Karl + 1 guest - We absolutely love to cook and eat Indian food! Sign us up (2 persons). How can we pay?
  • Total - hi waybia, looking forward to this already, let me know how to pay the chf50, all the best. E
RSVP'd No: 1
  • gourmet - unfortunately I am not available. :( next time.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Culinary Tryst with India

that sounds like a great event- too bad we are so far and if we didn't just get back from zurich yesterday night, i'd have much better luck talking the oh into going for this!

i have been to rainsong in c.r- i have family very nearby, it's a cool place and they do some great work- good for you to give back to them, they are very hardworking people who really give their everything to the animals they help.

best of luck with your event!

Hello Waybia, this sounds like a fun and very interesting way to raise money for charity. I'll have a word with my hubby tonight when he gets home.

Re: Culinary Tryst with India

Wow, its wonderful to hear from you, Amaraya! And to 'meet' someone else who knows Rainsong!
My passion is to involve myself with animals. This is why I am getting my other talents together to take further steps to involve myself more with this passion.
Yes, its a pity that you cannot make it this time. Thanks a lot for your kind words.

Re: Culinary Tryst with India

I'd love to go to this, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. We would get back to NE a bit late. Will have to see.

Re: Culinary Tryst with India

What kind of set-up is it, please? All hands-on or do we watch you cook? Will there be work stations for participants?

Actually it's the game I was more interested in. LOL. Actually, just kidding, it was the whole thing. Anyway, turns out after talking to the husband we have something else that night. But he wasn't against driving all the way there. So that's a good thing, if you do another one!

Re: Culinary Tryst with India

hi everyone,

Thanks for all your replies and RSVPs!

This is the very first time that I am organizing this in Zurich, so your questions are helping me learn too.

@gourmet: How did your curry turn out?!
If I have >10 participants, I plan to have it in Zurich, otherwise in my home in Rueschlikon. We will start at 16:00, dinner starts at 19:00.

@argus: Thanks for your encouraging response!
There will be no participation stations, as I will be mostly doing it at home. There is a chance to 'try out' the methods with me in the kitchen. Based on the response, if I do get to afford a professional place in Zurich, I can provide different work stations.

I need to know the final numbers by Tuesday 10th January, so that I can purchase what is necessary and keep things ready!

@miniMia: no problem, I shall do a repeat of the game the next time you can make it! And your hubby can join in the eating bit.

This sounds great waybia! Wish I could make it but we've got something on that weekend. I would surely be in for round two though!

Re: Culinary Tryst with India EVENT FULL

Dear all,

Please note that I already have a 'full plate' as far as my guests to next Saturday's event goes! This is because the event was also posted to my friends in other sources; the ones who had encouraged me to plan this out in the first place.

I have been positively encouraged by your kind responses, to both, Indian cuisine and my cause to the sanctuary. Thank you very much for the same.

You will hear a 2nd event from me before Easter, when I shall try to procure a professional kitchen and get more of you involved.

Till then, A big THANK YOU to all of you!
