Cooking Classes

 

Welcome to Ruby’s Kitchen – we love that you popped in to visit.  If you’re looking for a way to bring authentic Indian food into your kitchen (without ordering in from your favorite Indian restaurant) you’re in the right place.

We aren’t your regular cooking school.  Our goal is to teach you how to create your favorite Indian food in a warm, fun and relaxed atmosphere.  We use the freshest ingredients, creative cooking tips and a ton of laughter in our kitchen.  Our intimate class setting mixed in with plenty of hands on experience will surely spark some excitement about cooking with us…  and again on your own.

Our teaching philosophy is based on helping you truly understand what you are making and giving you the step by step support to feel confident while cooking it.  In other words, once you’ve learned it, its yours to make for life.  We are here to unveil the chef in everyone.

We are in love with all things food.  With that we are happy to introduce Ruby’s Kitchen and Cooking School – the only one of its kind in Calgary!

Looking for something different and exciting to do? We chose to visit Ruby’s Kitchen to celebrate my boyfriend’s 27th birthday…we were desperate for something that was affordable for our guests, but wasn’t the usual stand-by of visiting the local pub. Ruby’s was the perfect solution: it offered something refreshing, fun and intimate for our group of 10.

If the food doesn’t win you over, Ruby and her son Rahim certainly will! The pair offer a welcoming, friendly atmosphere for experienced chefs and take-out kings alike. Ruby instructed with such encouragement, charisma, and charming passion! Here’s a woman who not only knows her food, she LOVES her food and is happy to share interesting nutrition tid-bits as you go along.

The menu was great, and Ruby and Rahim made sure it was easy for us all to follow along. The end of the class had all 10 of us indulging in Indian delights that none of us would have imagined making on our own before.

Delicious and delightful, our visit to Ruby’s Kitchen will be talked about in the highest regard for a very long time. Can not wait to schedule our next visit!

A group of us decided to get together and do a cooking lesson for a birthday celebration. We were thrilled to find Ruby’s Kitchen – a one of it’s kind in Calgary. Ruby and Rahim were extremely welcoming and had some great goodies prepared for us upon arrival. I’ve been to other cooking schools in the city but was excited to learn that we would actually be cooking the recipes ourselves at this lesson – with the supervision of Ruby of course!

We were soon sitting down to some delicious handmade goodies – Samosa’s, Butter Chicken, Basmati Rice and some yummy Rice Pudding. It was really surprising how easy it all was to make, with the exception of the perfectly shaped Samosa! Ruby and her son provided us with such was a unique experience and I cannot wait to go back and learn some other impressive recipes. We had a great time and are anxious to impress our friends and family with our new skills.

Thank you so so much for everything.

Calgary Cooking Class Testimonial Review



I had a great time at Ruby’s kitchen mainly because of Ruby! She was extremely patient, had an outgoing personality and had some great cooking tips and tricks that she shared.

What I loved about the class was that there were freshly made snacks provided at the beginning of the class and that there were a lot of leftovers for us to bring home once we were done cooking. This experience was the real deal and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

I definitely look forward to popping in to try some of the different dishes and grabbing a bag of those fennel cookies!!! Yum.

Dear Rahim & Ruby,
I wanted to take a minute to thank you two so much for such a wonderful night on Saturday! The ladies had an amazing time, I have heard so many wonderful comments from them all!


Everyone felt so comfortable in Ruby’s kitchen, we hope you will have us back in the future for a samosa (sp?) class!
Thanks again for a very successful ladies night out!

Hi Rahim & Ruby,

I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic evening we had the other night.  I was thrilled when we entered the cooking class to see such a great workspace laid out so professionally before us.  All the tools and ingredients were clearly marked and placed so that I felt like I could make this kitchen my own instantly.  The atmosphere was fun and lively and immediately we felt at ease. And the evening just got better from there.  The appetizers were scrumptious and held us over beautifully.  (The coconut chutney was such a great combination with the falafels!)  The class was fun, educational and delicious!  We couldn’t stop talking on the way home with our friends about what a great time we had, nor in the days that followed.  The amount of food that we cooked fed us for a couple of days afterwards.  The instructions were clear and concise.  And despite the fact we were multi-tasking on a couple of meals at the same time, we kept pace without any issues.  My husband hasn’t cooked this much since we were married!  


The chicken samosas were the best we have ever tasted and we made them!  I’m still amazed by this!  I credit the recipe and Ruby for the result.  Since we attended, I’ve haven’t stopped telling my co-workers, my family and my friends about the experience.  For the amount of food, the hands-on experience, the learning process and for just a different, out-of-the-ordinary night out with friends, we think this class was worth every penny.
You will be seeing us again.  And next time, I think there will be more joining us.  

Thank again,

Rumi Neil
