Dinesh and I have been running the Cafe at the Bangalore Ashram with a fair measure of success, thanks to our tireless and super dedicated team who totally own the place as their very own … And we thought we should now do something more than just cook food and serve it for our very loyal foodies who come to eat there.
Starting this Friday 13th evening thru Sunday 15th afternoon, we are going to be teaching people how to cook. Simple stuff with a high show off quotient 🙂
Some of those recipes are already there on this blog …
Yet another excuse for you to come to the lovely Bangalore Ashram!
Details are as follows:
Report to 8:15 pm at Cafe Vishala on Friday 13th. Come a little earlier to get your room and settled in please. We will start at 8:15 pm sharp.
There will be a welcome dinner already ready, but participants will learn to cook 3 things that evening:
Tomato Basil Soup (Zuppe Pomodoro)
Mashed Potatoes with butter and cream
Saturday morning 6:00 am Sadhana after which everyone comes directly to the Cafe for breakfast which will be fruit and cereals.
They will cook their own lunch which will be:
Green leafy Salad with a home made dressing
Purpose of Potatoes
Paneer in tomato butter sauce
Soya nuggets with pineapple chunks
Veggie Pulav and Dal
There will be a brief meditation just before lunch.
Retire for a well earned rest and come back at 4:00 pm for Dinner preparation, with a break for Satsang:
Potato Apple Soup
Sweet and Sour Veggies
Sambhar and Rasam Rice
Parapa Usulli (French Beans south Indian style)
Bhindi fry and Pachadi
Potato fry south Indian style
Sunday morning 6:00 am Sadhana after which everyone comes directly to the Cafe. They will learn to make:
Hot Chocolate (trust me, no one knows how to make this!)
Lunch will be:
Clear Veggie Soup
Penne Pasta Salad with buffalo mozzarella and olive oil and lemon dressing
Baked Potatoes and Tomatoes with sour cream and chives
Fettucine in a red sauce
Aglio Olio Spaghetti
As usual there will be a short pre lunch meditation. After lunch the workshop will be over and they are welcome to attend Satsang before going back home. They will need to vacate their rooms by 7:00 pm.
The all inclusive cost of the workshop is Rs 5250.
This includes all the food, 4 sharing room for stay in the ashram on Friday and Saturday nights, a full printout of every recipe they learned and a complimentary Vishala t shirt. Participants may also invite any one friend/relative over to lunch with them on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 pm to show off their new found cooking prowess.
They will need to bring their own chopping boards and knives.
Note that we have exactly 20 seats on this workshop.
PS Please do tell everyone you know! 🙂
PPS There will be Part II as well – more advanced and complicated stuff… Watch out for that!
