On a cold wintery Saturday afternoon in March we had an enthusiastic group of participants join Arvinda’s Curries, Curries & More Curries cooking class in Toronto at Nella Cucina. Although spring is (finally!) in the air, Arvinda’s curries indeed helped us get through our terribly cold Canadian winter this year!
