Virtual Cooking Experiences, Shamal Kumal

Bored of cooking the same old stuff? Learn how to cook meals that are worth the washing up, with a range of cooking experiences to suit everyone.

Why we love this course

If you’re anything like us, you’re pretty sick of cooking in your own house. Three meals a day is A LOT, right? After the initial excitement of the return to ‘normal’ life results in frostbite and a £300 bill at your local eatery (in the first week alone), you know you still need to find some joy and variety in your home cooking routine.

Let Shamal (Cooking With Shamoo) take you on a culinary adventure that’ll make you look forward to mealtimes again. Even though you still have to do your own washing up.

With a series of Cooking Experiences that you can do with friends, family or colleagues, Shamal uses her love of travelling and the Caribbean influence of her Guyanese roots to help bring some fun and flavour back into your home-cooked meals.

In addition to her existing experiences, Shamal has just launched ‘Dinner With Friends’. A cooking experience that will help get your hosting skills back-up to scratch (so you can pretend like you haven’t forgotten how to cook anything other than beans on toast during all 150* lockdowns).

For more inspiration, you can also sign up to The Cook Club to get more access to brilliant live cook-alongs and weekly recipes.

So, carve some time out for yourself and get ready to find the joy in cooking again.  

*probably not an accurate number but, let’s face it, it feels like at least 150…
