Cooking and my interest in food are literally my life! I've been cooking for 25 years professionally. I cook at Harborne Food School. I'm also the proprietor of my own food business and former Tour Chef to Wiz Khalifa, ASAP Rocky, Chevvy Woods, Rozi Plain, Bloc Party and Paramore.

As well as cooking for music tours, I have won plenty of culinary awards, including silver medalist at the World Culinary Olympics 2017 representing England in the Indian category and also achieved 3rd place in the prestigious UK Curry Championships 2023. As a Foodie, I've travelled to over 60 countries and lived in Malaysia, China and Spain and have gathered a wide repertoire of dishes that I would love to share with you.

Apart from a few accolades already mentioned, I feel a great passion for food history, origins of ingredients, and regional staples not only across Asia, but the world over. I love to cook and share my knowledge, and often learn a lot from my students too.

This cooking course was a gift for my husband’s birthday, as he’s passionate about cooking. Steve made us feel very welcome into his home and he had a great set up for cooking. All the ingredients provided were fresh and of quality. We learnt lots of tips and tricks to get the best out of your curries and how we can alter them to make many more dishes at home. We also learnt about all the different spices you can use in your cooking too. We felt we got our money’s worth with a great authentic 1:2 experience that you may not get at bigger cooking schools. We loved the passion shown by Steve and overall my husband really enjoyed it and got to take a goody bag of treats home, which topped the day off!

Having never done one of these classes before, we weren’t sure what to expect, but Steve put us at ease straightaway and made us feel welcome in his house. He’d also done a lot of the preparatory work, which left us to concentrate on the cooking itself.
Steve had chosen a well balanced menu of dishes for us to prepare, and we worked through them all in the time available without ever feeling hurried.
He is clearly passionate and very knowledgeable about his subject, and was full of interesting tips as well as clear guidance on what we should be doing. At the end of the lesson we had produced a brilliant looking (and tasting) meal that we could be proud of.
Thanks again Steve!

I bought this cookery class for my teenage daughter, as she loves cooking and baking.

She took the Indian beginners class with Steve, making a chicken curry, saag aloo, onion bhaji and chapatti bread.

She had a great time and can't wait to use her new experience in the kitchen at home.

Steve was very knowledgeable and shared his expirances of his travels, to which was put into practice during this class.

Would recommend to anyone, including youngsters!

Thanks again!

We went as a couple for an early birthday present.

Steve was brilliant - he’s the perfect teacher / person for this kind of thing.

We felt very welcome & enjoyed every minute.

Steve had all the gear & provided everything we needed. It really was a brilliant experience.

I’d highly recommend it for other couples.

Steve’s knowledge was second to none.

We made bhaji’s (which were a babe Chander) a roti, perfect rice & a chicken curry.

10/10 - really brilliant.

Really enjoyed the 3 hrs. Very informative and you see very quickly how passionate Steve is about Indian cooking. I will definitely be cooking my own curries here on in!

Paul Parker Jan 2024


Steve was very knowledgeable about everything, from spices, culture and region.
I really enjoyed my time with Steve and would recommend him.
The food we cooked was delicious and I gained a greater knowledge of cooking Anglo/Indian food.

This was the best experience ever Loved every minute of it. Steve was so lovey to me and my friend and taught us a lot about the backgrounds of cooking and the dishes we was doing today. My friend and I are chefs/baker but I booked this class to learn something new and I can happily say I will be using the dishes I learnt about today to make more at home. Will definitely come back as a customer again and try other classes that Steve teaches. Thank you

Fantastic cookery class Steve was a fab teacher with lots of handy tips along the way.
Perfect for those who need beginners cookery tips, would defo recommend.

Had a fantastic session with Steve's 'Gym Meal Prep Cooking Class'. I learnt a lot from this cooking lesson, he is a master of his craft and the man is full of knowledge. He explains a lot from start to finish and very thorough in his approach to teaching. The venue was a little challenging to find but I eventually found it with his guidance. At the end of the lesson I came out with 4 different dishes that will definitely help me with food preparation to help me with my training regime. I will definitely book Steve for more cooking session as there's so much to learn which I felt I've only scratch the surface.

David Linley Dec 2023


Thoroughly enjoyed the course and learnt a lot. Steve was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the class and everything we cooked was delicious.

Elaine Formosa Nov 2023


We were bought this experience as an anniversary gift so had absolutely no idea what to expect. We were therefore surprised to arrive at a private house.
Steve made us feel at ease immediately and we enjoyed a few hours of preparing and cooking the food on a one to one basis.
Steve was very passionate about, in this case, Anglo/Indian food and he was ready to answer all our questions.

Anita Oct 2023


Excellent teacher, made the whole experience interesting and enjoyable. Would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys curry.

Steve has been an amazing tutor. He taught me how to prepare various Indian dishes and provided me with valuable cooking tips. The highlight of his teaching was his ability to restore my confidence in making roti, which I found challenging until now. Steve provides clear, step-by-step cooking instructions that boost your confidence in preparing foreign dishes.

Rehna Fayaz Jun 2023


Great class, welcoming learning environment and easy to follow delicious recipes.

Steve was kind to answer all questions and made it a lovely afternoon.

Would recommend.

Robert Davies Jun 2023


Steve was very welcoming, knowledgeable and has a treasure trove of ingredients. The lesson was well prepared and we cooked alongside eachother in a great commercial-looking special kitchen area. I really enjoyed learning the foundations of vegetarian dishes - then how to modify them to create many tasty varieties. Puffing up rotis was particularly good fun, and I've ordered my wire roaster to replicate at home. Would definitely recommend.
