I am a passionate supporter of Find Your Feet, the small charity doing big work in the developing world to aid education, enterprise and empowerment. Their annual Curry For Change fundraiser kicked off in June in restaurants around the country, the supperclubs are happening in homes and other venues nationwide, but here’s something new!
Love Indian food, but feel intimidated by the many ingredients, spices and terminology? You can learn from the experts with one of these four one-off classes at School of Wok, Covent Garden London. The classes are a bargain at £35 for a 3 hour class, with Kingfisher beer, Natco ingredients and goody bags will be provided!
All you have to do afterwards is host a Curry for Change evening putting your new skills to the test in your home! (Any enquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0207 326 4601.)
