I am looking for someone to take northern Indian/Pakistani cooking classes from. I am a competent cook (of non-Indian food), and so am more interested in finding a good cook than an experienced teacher. Non-vegetarian is preferred, but vegetarian is alright, too. My ideal would be to find an Indian grandmother or mother -- someone who cooks by instinct: all of my friends' mothers, while willing, live far away. I can't afford hundreds of dollars a class, but will pay for quality and am happy to barter by teaching something I know or something like this if that were preferred. I am in Pasadena, although I am willing to travel in the LA area. Suggestions?
