12 Course Special in July
In January 2025, we are organizing a 10-day culinary tour of Odisha, Dev's home state in eastern India. The tour will immerse guests in local culture and cuisine, featuring cooking sessions with local chefs, visits to food markets, wine tasting, and explorations of exotic locations. Odisha, known for its picturesque landscapes, friendly people, and delicious cuisine, has earned numerous tourism awards and is often called "India's best kept secret." Keeping Odisha's cuisine in mind we have curated a special 12 course tasting menu.

Special Offer for Produced in Kent members. Use Code ''PIK" and book the tasting menu for £49.99 throughout this month.

Moroccan Cookery Evening Class (NEW): Dev believed he grew up eating purely Indian food until his culinary travels revealed surprising similarities with other cuisines, especially Moroccan. This led him to question the origins of dishes like samosas and naans. Realizing commonalities in cuisines fostered a sense of humility and human connection and thus this special class was created with our Moroccan chef.
