Taste of India: Cooking Class

Join us on Saturday, July 15th from 2:00-5:00 for an Indian Cooking Class, presented by culinary instructor, Archana Verma.

Archana Verma was raised in a food household in Northern India. Her mother was an avid cook and her father was an athletic, health conscious doctor.

Archana’s engineering career brought her to North America. After 8 years in the technology field, she became a homemaker and began to pursue her passion as a culinary instructor. She has been teaching Indian vegetarian recipes since 2009 at PCC Natural markets, Seattle Vegfest and for many non-profit events in the greater Seattle area.
