Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

I will be starting cooking classes (Pakistani cuisine) from Tuesday the 12th of October. They will run every tuesday afternoon (12-3:00)pm. I will outline the menus briefly here. Because my kitchen has limited space I can only accept 4 people at a time! After cooking the food we will sit down and eat the proof! People in a rush can take their individual portions with them, i.e. if you have places to be at you don't HAVE to stay till 3:00!! If any of your friends or spouses/partners wishes to join they are welcome to.

I will provide all ingredients for the class. The class+lunch will be Chf50 per person per class. You can come for whichever class you wish to.

For more information please send me a private message.

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

Hello!

If you tell me what you eat and what you don't I could tailor one of the classes to your needs. It might help if other vegans join in for the class, though!

You do know that this is in Geneva and not Zurich, right?

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

amna, you say you don't have to stay until 3:00 ... what is the earliest you could see someone leaving and still fully participate in the cooking

and

what part of GE are you in ( generally speaking ) ?

Hi there

You could probably leave by two. I live in Genthod village (near Versoix). Bus V and the train both nearby.

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

Oooooh I'd be interested in a vegan class (I'm vegetarian but I love to cook vegan when I can).

Probably not just yet as I've only arrived, but certainly within the next couple of months...

I'll PM you Amna.

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva



So do vegans avoid all dairy and eggs also? Sorry for my ignorance!

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

I'm not a vegan ( or a veg for that matter ) but yes.. my understanding is they will eat nothing produced from / by animals

meat obviously
milk
milk products, cheese, yougurt
eggs

Re: Pakistani Cooking Classes in Geneva

I need to have a look at my schedule, but if I can get out by about 2pm I might be interested in a couple of courses.
