Pramila Chaturvedi was born in India and migrated to Australia in 1988. She is now settled in Wollongong and working in the pathology area of the Local hospital. She has a Master’s degree in Biochemistry and has been teaching Indian vegetarian cooking run under the auspices of the Wollongong WEA School of Culinary Arts for the last 22 years supplemented with cooking workshops , informative cooking demonstrations and private lessons. An outstanding feature of Pramila’s teaching is the way in which all the basic techniques, and all the minute technical details of how and when to incorporate spices to the best effect is systematically and thoroughly explained to the beginner student. Pramila’s original recipes, provided to her students are very clearly set out and explained. Pramila’s Indian cookbook, the result of her many years of teaching, is thus very much out of the ordinary and her recipes, and explanations thereof, are being made available more widely. “My purpose is to teach practical, entertaining and informative cooking classes to suit all ability levels that are fun, interactive and interesting. Healthy cooking and eating does not mean boring or plain, it is the complete opposite and opening of one’s mind to healthy and peaceful living.” Pramila teaches with passion and patience and brings not only a wealth of knowledge and love of vegetarian food to her classes but she also has a kind and caring spirit which extends to each and every one of her students. Pramila’s depth of knowledge and passion for her subject is infectious and she manages to combine her wisdom and knowledge of food herbs and spices with a sense of humour to create a fun filled feast for an authentic “Taste of India”.
