Chef Bio:

Jenny was born in Canada and was raised in the Bay Area. She got the opportunity to live in India and learn about the many varieties of regional Indian dishes. Wildly curious about every taste and flavor, she was schooled in the art of how to prepare curries properly and authentic tastes. Through many interviews and understudying from aunties all over India, she's gained an amazing repertoire of various recipes and techniques.  Her claim to fame while living in India was being able to delight her Indian friends with her dishes who marveled at how the tastes reminded them of how their mothers cooked. On her return trips home, she would share everything she learned with her American friends and hold classes her home which she continues to do.

Jenny started taking classes at Kitchen On Fire in 2015 and has enthusiastically continued as an apprentice and part-time staff member. 

What to wear/bring to class: Please wear close-toed shoes to all classes. If you have shoulder-length hair or longer, please wear it back and away from your face; we have plenty of hair ties in the kitchen for you to use and keep. Feel free to bring a favorite apron or a knife you want to practice with, but know that we will supply all the tools you need at class.

Class format: Each class begins with a lecture from the chefs on the theme and recipes for the class. After this introduction, students break up into smaller groups and begin cooking a recipe. Students will primarily work on this recipe for the hands-on portion of the class, while checking in and learning key points of the other recipes along the way. Students start the class with a prepared snack, and eat throughout the class as different dishes are completed. The main courses are often timed to be eaten together. They are welcome to eat as much as they’d like in class, but unfortunately our zoning permit does not allow students to take food home.

Wine and other Alcoholic Beverages: We whole-heartedly invite class participants (who are 21 and older) to bring any beverages they would like to enjoy during their stay at Kitchen on Fire for personal consumption. We cannot sell or distribute alcohol and we uphold ABC regulations. No minor can drink and we cannot have intoxicated students attending a class. Our friends at Vintage Berkeley wine shop on Vine Street will extend a 10% discount on any bottles you purchase for your class at Kitchen on Fire - just bring in this letter.

Allergies: Please take a look at the class menu. If you think you might be allergic to anything on the menu please get in touch and we can double check the ingredient list (classes@kitchenonfire.com).
