Learn how to cook food from across the Indian subcontinent taking inspiration from the Mountains, Coast, Jungles, Desert and City.

Guests will learn how to cook hearty dishes from the snowy mountains to desert kingdoms, and the hustle and bustle of Delhi street food to coastal Keralan paradise and lush Nagaland jungles. It’s an Indian food adventure!


The Urban Rajah (aka Ivor Peters) is a food writer, cook, presenter traveller and lifestyle adventurer with roots deep in the Indian Subcontinent.

With appearances on Channel 4 and BBC London he also writes for The Guardian, Hello, Delicious, Olive and his cookbook, Urban Rajah’s Curry Memoirs tells the story of his love affair with curry through over 80 familial recipes.

He’s a regular on the food festival scene demonstrating accessible Indian spiced recipes. He recently dished up 1,000 covers at his two day pop-up restaurant Urban Rajah’s Indian Streetkitchen and managed to keep his trademark handlebar moustache from wilting under the pressure!


School of Wok, set up by the young and talented chef Jeremy Pang, is Europe's only award winning Asian & Oriental cookery school. Located in London's Covent Garden, it provides engaging and exciting hands-on cookery classes to the public.
