Cook Along with Chef Deniz: Garlic Naan

Our Cooking Along LIVE series continues! Thank you to all who registered, donated to support our chefs, or ordered a cook-along kit so you could follow along live.

In this class, Chef Deniz introduces you to his recipe for everyone’s favourite curry, Butter Chicken! You can make a big batch and freeze it for future use - a great way to stick to your holiday resolutions to eat better! Chef Deniz talks about using seafood, veggies or tofu instead of chicken and other ways to change it up. He serves it with fresh veggies, steamed basmati rice with peas & cilantro AND Chef also walks you through a quick and delicious recipe for Homemade Naan bread with garlic butter.

The sound was a little off at the start of the programme, but we sort it out shortly thereafter!
