Had an interesting conversation just now about possibly doing a Sri Lankan cooking class as part of a corporate diversity event (tied to Asian American heritage month in May). I think it’s likely to happen, which is great — corporations pay rather nicely for this kind of thing.
I gave them several options; it looks like I’ll probably teach how to roast and grind spices, and then how to make a vegan jackfruit curry with them, while talking about the spices and the colonial history influences on the cuisine. Some of the staff may cook along at home.
All of which reminds me that I probably should be signed up with a Speaker’s Bureau, and have sections on my website about how to book me for speaking engagements and cooking classes. Anyone with experience with this kind of thing, would love to hear any advice you have!
