So this is a serious TREAT for all of you - I have a great deal that you can win OR buy for yourself!
There are some really cool Bears at Findlay Market - you may have heard of Bolly Bears, Sushi Bears or Basil Bears - well they are all courtesy of Chef Dan and his magical ethnic food! You can get some of their food at the market but you can also take cooking classes in any of their specialties from Chef Dan & his crew!
They're opening up a full-time new space on the outside of Findlay at 124 West Elder St. I love the bright colors!
My friend Leah and I decided to take the Indian class - we were going to learn the base yellow curry and then learn how to make tikki masala and saag from that base.
All along the way - Erin was giving us tips & tricks as well as dropping some knowledge on us. For example - when you buy curry powder at Kroger for example - you're getting a mix of 3 ingredients (tumeric, cumin and paprika) but the traditional seasoning mix that Indian restaurants use has 10 spices! No wonder it tastes different! Bolly Bears has a seasoning mix they sell - I bought a tub for $10 - I figure it's cheaper than buying all 10 spices myself. They said if you making Indian less than once/week - the spice mix they sell is a better deal.
This was the base for everything - add spinach and you have saag - add tomato paste and you have tikki masala. What the what? Yeah!
Leah then had to stir all that spinach into the curry!
Erin also added some ingredients and made Tikki Masala and then it was eatin' time!
From May 1-6 they have a Groupon where you get a class for 2 for just $49 ($50 savings!!) You definitely want to snatch this deal up!
(Update - the deal will be available later in the month of May 2013 at the same link listed above.)
