Join us for an authentic cooking experience with a difference! Spend an evening with a Gurkha Chef who will teach you how to make a delicious fresh Gurkha Curry, then enjoy eating the tasty meal that has been freshly prepared in front of you.
Chef Ramu Devkota will demonstrate creating Gurkha curry with chicken and vegan options from scratch, along with a tasty side dishes which will be eaten at the end of the demo. Learn about this distinctive curry and have the chance to ask questions about Nepalese cuisine and also about the traditional Nepalese way of life.
Brecon has a long-standing association with its resident Gurkha regiment, with a strong Nepalese community that has chosen to make this their home after giving invaluable service within the British Army.
The Gukha cookery experience is an interactive demonstration followed by everyone having a dish of delicious freshly cooked curry and side dishes including dahl, rice and chutney, all prepared in front of you. We can accommodate vegans and can also make gluten-free dishes with advance notice, so please advise of any food preferences or intolerances in advance. The curries generally are nut-free and dairy-free but please advise in advance of allergies. Please advise whether you prefer Chicken or Vegan curry when you book.
The cooking will take around 90 mins during which time you can talk with the chef and he will be offering some tasty typical Nepalese snacks for you to sample. When the food is ready, the group will have an informal dinner of the prepared food.
The price does not include drinks apart from water, but you are welcome to bring your own alcoholic or soft drinks.
