Chef Jasjit arrived nice and early with her totes full of all the supplies needed to create our culinary delights. It was our first meeting and I felt an immediate connection with her as she radiated warmth and kindness.
She settled into my kitchen organizing and arranging a variety of spices and other supplies to ensure easy retrieval for a well planned cooking lesson. She made her way around my kitchen with ease, preparing the chia tea, warming the samosas and filling my home with the most wonderful aromas of Northern Indian cuisine.
Our guests arrived and warmed up with a beautiful pairing of chia tea and samosas. It wasn't long before we were all busy chatting, cutting, dicing, stirring and mixing under the attentive direction of Jasjit.
The beauty of our efforts were set before us as we sat down to enjoy an incredible meal of Butter Chicken, Rice Pulao, Chapattis, Aaloo bhari hari mirch and a delectable Indian yogurt sauce to top it off. The conversation at the table was filled with stories of family, travel, love and friendship. It was a heartwarming experience and one that I will always look back on joyfully. With my new found skills and recipes in hand I'm looking forward to recreating the experience of that night. Thank you Sherry, Sarah, Lisa, Joanne and Jasjit for making the evening a great success. We raised $200 dollars for mom2mom Africa and had a great time doing it!!!
