Special Guest Chef! Indian Vegetarian Food with Ravi Lahori

ravi1When it comes to Indian food, the consensus is unanimous ~  anything Chef Ravi cooks is way better than anything you have ever had in any Indian restaurant around here.

It’s the gentle touch he applies to all the many different spices he uses (most of which have incredible antioxidant and healing properties), or maybe it’s just that extra dose of love he puts into everything he cooks – but whatever it is, it works! And a meal taught by his talented hands will be a treat and a thrill.

Chef Ravi has cooked all over the world,  for Middle Eastern royalty &has successfully conducted two international Indian food promotions in Sri Lanka & Portugal and winning many awards for culinary excellence  at Salon Culinaire in Dubai(U.A.E)

Chef Ravi’s Indian cooking are ideal for anyone who craves truly authentic, delicious, Indian food that’s just   out of the ordinary and way off the taste scale!spices1.jpg
