We all love a great Indian meal right? Especially if a celebration’s in order. And we’re pretty good at arranging celebrations, so when we heard about Amarpal (pictured) and his team we just had to get involved. This group cooking class is in the Midlands.
We know that loads of our groups either order an Indian take away or go out to an Indian restaurant while they’re with us for the weekend. So why not make an activity out of it? And that’s exactly what this is.
Amarpal and his team will guide you through the process of preparing and cooking a mouth watering Indian meal, and then you get to eat it (obvs.) You’ll get plenty of gorgeous food, so no need to order that take away.
You can either go along to Amarpal’s catering kitchen and take your finished food away with you in takeaway containers, or we can arrange for him to come to your accommodation. Most groups enjoy having this experience set up in their accommodation, and we turn up with everything you’ll need, such as workstations, cookers, chopping boards, pans, fuel and all the ingredients.
You’ll learn how to cook some fantastic Samosas with dips to start. While your group are enjoying those, Amarpal will do a demonstration of his superb culinary skills for you. Then it’s onto preparing the Saffron Pilau Rice and Channa Masala.
Then we’ll move onto the preparation and cooking of a chicken dish or Paneer dish as a vegetarian option if preferred. We can’t stress enough how gorgeous your food will taste. And don’t worry if you’ve never even picked up a spatula before.
Amarpal and his team are with you every step of the way, and he’ll get you creating dishes you wouldn’t have thought possible. If you’ve got a particular dish that you always wanted to learn how to cook, we’ll do our very best to arrange that for you. And you can choose to have it as hot and spicy as you wish. Careful cheeky.
Generally there will be 2 people per workstation, and everyone who takes part gets a certificate of completion. We’ll run it as a competition between you all if you fancy, and we’ll even give the winning work station a bottle of bubbly.
This activity goes fabulously with our Real Ale Experiences, and why not think about getting a Butler in the Buff or Butlerette to serve the food and drinks to your group? This group cooking class is based in the Midlands, so why not have a look at our nearby accommodation?
Visited here last weekend, superb place very spacious, amazing property's on offer lovely views. Activities on offer are vast and there's so much to do we opted for karting and shooting and it didn't disappoint. We spent hours using the full sized pool table and the bedrooms were lovely and clean, if you want an all inclusive weekend away whether it's a stag do or any other gathering then this is ideal and when there's up to 12 people or even less if represents great value for money for what you get, thanks guys. James and the lads.
We went through Greg from HDK to help us organise a stag do for 13 lads in the Peak District. Straight from the off Greg was extremely accommodating and friendly, happy to help with all (a lot) of our questions. The activity day was a real highlight and exceeded my expectations, so a massive thank you Greg and the team for booking that and to all the guys who ran the activities. Brilliant all round.

Amazing service from Greg at HDK. The snow thwarted our hen do plans at the last minute but Greg very diligently found us an alternative activity for no extra charge. He was communicative and available to talk whenever was needed and I couldn’t have asked for a better service! 10/10 would recommend. Emma G.
