About: Benares is home to the acclaimed Atul Kochhar, the twice Michelin starred Chef that has pushed the boundaries of Indian cuisine, creating unique and rare dishes from all parts of the world.

We went to a cooking demonstration at Benares followed by a tasting lunch and Atul makes cooking curries look so easy. When we tasted them though they were out of this world, with such depth of flavour and varied flavours to each one. Amazing stuff and worlds apart from the high street Indian restaurants I grew up with.
