Rayees'a Indian Kitchen

Hi my name is Rayeesa and I would like to welcome you to my Indian Cookery School. You've come to the right place if you want to learn how to make delicious tasting, authentic, home cooked Indian food.  You will be taught both traditional and modern methods of Indian food preparation and cooking techniques and leave feeling confident, with the skills to create mouth-watering Indian meals in your own home. Whether you are a novice or a more experiences cook we have the perfect class for you.
 
Food is such a wonderful way to peoples hearts, and I love both food and people, so following on from many years of entertaining guests, requests for recipes, being asked to cook for various events, teaching small groups how to cook Indian food, and being inspired by the beautiful unspoilt surrounding of Herefordshire, I thought maybe this could be something I can do for a business. So having two very distinct elements here, a peaceful and traditional English farmhouse setting and authentic and mouth-watering Indian food, put them together and you get “Rayeesa’s Indian Kitchen”.  
 
I love food and like most passionate cooks I learnt everything I know from my wonderful mother. (She is from Hyderabad in India.) Hyderabad is known for its wonderful aromatic and excellent cuisine, the food of the “Raj”. This is predominately the type of food I was exposed to and enjoyed as a child. My mother in my opinion is “the best cook ever”. Despite the numerous cookery books on my shelf I always go back to the methods and techniques she taught me all those years ago, and now so can you !
 
I live in a 500-year-old farmhouse with my husband Richard and three incredible children. I am originally from south London. My husband and I moved to Herefordshire 7 years ago. He had often spoken about retiring here but that never really appealed to my town instincts… until I came and saw for myself just how beautiful and peaceful and unspoilt it was here, in my opinion one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in England
 
My previous jobs include being a Police Officer for 17yrs, working with vulnerable young people in the community, and also running a soft furnishings business from home, so as you can see I have a varied experience. I love making things for the home and have several unique one off pieces available to purchase in my shop, together with specialist cookware and spices for you to buy and take home.
