It's a shame that more indian restaurants don't do their own cooking classes.

A shame yes, but isn't it a bit like a carpenter offering woodworking classes, or a plasterer showing how you could easily artex your ceiling yourself?
They've been cooking on Blue Peter, now they're sampling the dishes,
I don't normally like tomatoes John but this is delicious.

I might email a few local restaurants and see if I get any bites.

I'd happily pay £50-£100 to one of the better ones to learn 1 or 2 of their signature dishes.

I agree :) I'm not doubting that many would offer classes for cash.

The point I meant to make was that it makes a poor business case in the wider picture. But I guess the average curry house owner doesn't analyse his business to that level (which is why he's running a curry house and not a corporation :) ).
