Join Nahida in preparing a wonderful Bengali dish for her online cookery class! She is a wonderful teacher, chef and story-teller. She will share the secrets to traditional Bengali dishes. This is your chance to learn a brand new cuisine, support an amazing cause, and eat great food.
The class will be conducted as an interactive virtual cook-along. The classes usually range from 1-2 hours long. The chef will lead the group step by step through the recipes; stopping frequently to answer questions, share anecdotes, and provide feedback on your dishes!
Before the class we will send you a list of ingredients, quantities and equipment so you can join ready to learn! We will also send you a reminder email 3 days before the class takes place that will include the Zoom link, titled “Your upcoming online Migrateful Class”.

Message from Nahida: “Hello! My name is Nahida and I’m from Bangladesh! I was brought up surrounded by Bengali cooking, which explores so many amazing flavours and so many exotic spices. Migrateful has given me the chance to meet people outside the Bengali community and to share my love of cooking.
I’m so happy teaching my recipes in Migrateful classes. Each class is different and I love spending time with people from a variety of backgrounds. It has made me proud to see them enjoying my food. Now I feel respected as a chef. Migrateful has given me the confidence and help to start my own catering company.”
