Tucked away on the western region of India known as the Malabar Coast, the state of Kerala is known for its coffee and spice plantations. It’s the food Esha Bhandarkar grew up cooking with her mother, and she dreams of lazy days coasting along the palm tree-lined backwaters on a houseboat, complete with a thatched roof and kitchen that churns out amazing meals, featuring seafood pulled directly from the lake. Join her in this special class, where she’ll teach you how to make some of her favorite Kerala dishes. On the menu: njandu moilee (crab curry in a delicate turmeric and coconut curry); chemmeen roast (stir-fried prawns in a spicy, black pepper masala); manga achar (pickled mango); takkali (Kerala-style onion and tomato raita with coconut oil); and steamed basmati rice.
