The Cook Eat Joy Story

Hello! I’m Ela and I started Cook Eat Joy as each of those words fill me with so much delight. I love cooking and always have since a young girl whether it was cooking and eating fish cakes and tinned tomatoes with my mum after nursery or helping to cook the evening meal of lentils and okra with chapatis.
Cooking for me has always been a real passion and coming from an Indian Gujarati household eating was just as important. There is no way you could leave our family home feeling hungry. The joy feeding people great food gives me is why I want to share my passion for food with you.

I started Cook Eat Joy after having been a secondary school teacher for 18 years and I have brought those teaching skills with me to enable you to have a fun packed class where you will learn the art of blending spices to make your very own Indian feast.
Whether you want to enjoy a group or private class the aim is the same I want you to leave happy and confident that you can recreate the dishes yourself.

I would love to welcome you to one of our classes to be able to share stories of food, recipes, spices and life.

Customer Reviews

“This is the second lesson I’ve had with Ela; the first was on zoom during lockdown and this was at her home with two of my best friends.
Ela is very good at explaining what to do, and why we do it and generally making the whole experience a delight.
Great fun and really tasty food. I thoroughly recommend a cooking session with Ela, she is so friendly and totally puts you at your ease.
I will be having a third lesson that’s for sure. X!”


“Ela was brilliant. She provided all ingredients and even kitchen facilities. The food was excellent and Ela made learning a pleasure. A fabulous evening enjoyed by all my family.”


“Ela came to my house for a lesson – I had bought it for my parents’ Christmas present and joined in too! – and my parents loved it.  She is an excellent teacher and we ended up with 3 delicious dishes we are all planning on making on our own.  Even my can’t-cook-husband thinks he’ll have a go!  I’d thoroughly recommend her!”
