Chef and founder of Masala Magic Lajina Leal will be part of our cookery theatre for Frestival 2019.
She launched her business in October, 2013 to teach home-style Indian cooking.
A self-taught home cook, Lajina’s meals are made from scratch and she has loads of tips and tricks to make healthy curries.
At Frestival, she will be showing us how to create both gluten-free dishes, and how to create vegan-friendly dishes.
Lajina said she wanted to become involved with Frestival to better understand the free-from movement.
She said: “I believe customers should come first so I like to understand their dietary needs and requirements, so it was natural for me to become involved.
“For my family, I make lots of dairy free gluten free dishes. My favourite curries to cook are simple, tasty ones, especially daals (lentils) as I can stir in a salad at the end, which adds texture and makes them super healthy and tasty.”
Lajina will be revealing nearer the time what she will be cooking for visitors to Frestival as she uses the local produce available to her whenever she can.
“Frestival is fantastic,” she adds. “It will offer a fresh approach to everyday meals that can be eaten by all members of the family, whether they have intolerances or not.”
Lajina holds cookery lessons, which hone cookery skills to turn people into seasoned professionals.
Her recent classes include Vegan basics and the Indian kitchen, where people learn to cook lots of healthy, protein-packed Indian food from scratch.
She also sells her own spices, which can be delivered to your door.
We can’t wait to see what Lajina will be making at our cookery theatre.
