Najma's Indian Cookery Classes launched in the summer of 2013 in Raynes Park in a local church hall. After a fantastic response, Shermin Ali, founder of Najma's opened her home kitchen to run these classes. Her classes are small and friendly with a complete hands-on approach and are designed to teach the essential techniques and spices needed to prepare authentic Indian home-style recipes.

From the beginner to the more advanced learner, Shermin's classes will teach you a skill for life that you will be able to share with your family or friends.
