日本人会ではバターチキンカレーはウェイティングだったので、オンラインで習えてよかったです。 先生のお料理が試食できないことだけが残念です。
[The butter chicken curry class has always been full at the Japanese Association, so it was nice to learn online. It's a pity that I couldn't taste your food.]

Hi, I'm Sourabh

I am the founder and director of Culture Connect Pte Ltd. I have a degree in Computer Engineering however I follow my passion for teaching healthy cooking as a profession. 

I am from North and West India, but I love to cook dishes from all over India. I currently live in Singapore with my family and for the past 5 years, I have been a cooking instructor in Singapore. I am also conducting online cooking classes and private lessons at clients’ places with their friends and family, kids cooking classes with kid-friendly recipes. My classes are conducted in English and/or Japanese.

Apart from Indian cooking, I teach people about Indian culture. With me, you can experience wearing Indian costumes such as a saree, and other traditional dresses. Or you can learn about henna and Kundan Rangoli. I conduct Little India tours also.

Before coming to Singapore in 2010, I was in Japan for 14 years and I have conducted cooking lessons in Tokyo and Yokohama.  I worked as an International Understanding Instructor and taught Indian culture in English to local elementary school students in Yokohama.

I participated in the Zee TV APAC cooking challenge show “Chef Diaries (Season 2) won the cook-off challenge. At the Malabar Adukkala Global Cooking competition, I was the second runner-up. I have also completed an  Ayurvedic cooking course, and a food hygiene course. 

I believe we should all eat well and cook at home as much as possible. Giving children healthy food help them to develop their minds and bodies, and also pick up an appreciation for cooking that will help them when they grow up. I will share simple, easy, quick recipes, and some popular Indian dishes. A lot of my food is based on Ayurvedic principles, and so I’ll share some home remedies as well. And I’ll show you how to do these with easily available ingredients!

Create, Communicate, and Celebrate is our motto. The logo has two meanings. First, it shows 4 different people connecting, using the Japanese character 人 ‘hito’ which means person. Second, the symbol as a whole looks like the Hindu Swastika, a symbol of good luck and prosperity.

Thank you, and I look forward to meeting with you!
