Anjali Sawant

Painting / Cooking

Artist Anjali Sawant instructs both painting and cooking classes for the Ah Haa School. With a BFA from California College of the Arts in Oakland, California, she has exhibited her work in galleries in Telluride, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.  Anjali grew up in an Indian family, where delicious home cooked food was at the center of every family gathering.  As soon she was old enough to roam around the kitchen she began learning her family’s culinary traditions – including how to balance spices intuitively, how to work with Ayurvedic and culinary properties of ingredients to enhance health and – as Mom always said – “bring up the flavor.” Her love affair with exotic flavor has led her to add a spicy Indian twist from everything from chicken soup to pizza.

Anji’s enthusiasm, personal attention, knowledge, and dedication to making sure everyone enjoyed the class was so refreshing!

I had a blast in this class and will definitely take more classes this summer when I return to Telluride!
