Why are we cooking?

Food is never constant. The way it makes you feel, is.

Over the millennia, as humanity has spread across continents, few things still intimately link us to one another – from genetics to language to culture, we share commonalities that aren’t just difficult to forget, they are so deeply ingrained that it becomes impossible to do so.

Food has been integral to it all and yet, at surface level, food may seem to divide us more than it unites. Whether a debate between vegetarians and non-vegetarians or vegans against dairy lovers; spiced, unspiced; cured, curated; fried, baked; keto, paleo and everything in between, food in the modern world seems to alienate rather than ingratiate.

But whether to a nomad in the middle of the harshest Arabian deserts or a farmer in the upper reaches of the frozen Himalayas, the preparation, storage and consumption of food has had one purpose: the advancement of us as a whole, as a species that seeks to not just beat the odds, but thrive against them. The simple act of understanding how milk can be transformed to enhance its flavours, while retaining its health benefits and increasing its longevity has led to an entire civilizations’s worth of research and development that travels with us, from our morning coffee to the nightly haldi doodh.

About Us-hero section

To put it simply, food is not a want, but a need. And the need is for us to communicate, to celebrate, to sit down with each other and break bread/raise a toast/grab a bite/savour ghar ka khana/catch up at the dinner table. When you find yourself in a foreign land, you try the food of your hosts to blend in and you feed them the food of your ancestors to ‘curry their favour’. Food brings comfort and its preparation brings community. It’s at the core of who we all are.

That’s what we seek to teach you at Slurp Culinary Academy – that food can never be processed, it has to be felt. Intimately, intricately, intensively.
We want you to learn all about food and fall in love with cooking, while learning what it takes to plate that food up with the same amount of passion and joy – whether you’re trying to recreate mom’s dal in whichever corner of the globe life takes you or you plan to spearhead a gastronomic revolution in the culinary industry, we will give you the basis, the tools on which you can innovate and make it your own.

So, what does food make you feel? Come find out with us at Slurp Culinary Academy!
