    About the Chef

    Anjali Pathak is a celebrated chef, food writer and cookery teacher. Having learnt the basics of Indian cookery from her family (Patak's), she trained as a professional chef in London before joining the well famed Jamie Oliver as a cookery teacher. She wrote a best selling cookbook 'Secrets from my Indian Family Kitchen' before packing her knives and her dreams for the shores of magical Mumbai. Following in the entrepreneurial footsteps of her family, Anjali created 'Flavour Diaries', an immersive dining concept that has sparked a new wave of dining experiences across India. She now lives in Paris and continues to go from strength to strength, regularly appearing on television across the world as an influential food entrepreneur and pioneer for food education.

    Once a thriving industrial zone, little manufacturing remains. Nowadays, this area is still a port for pleasure cruise boats and is home to media companies. We will walk along the quayside, pop into the Parc André Citroën, visit one of France’s darker historical periods, and have an unexpected encounter with Lady Liberty.

    About the Instructor

    Deborah Hunter is originally from Edinburgh, Scotland with a background in museums and culture. She enjoys exploring new horizons and finding unexpected sights in familiar places.
