Overview

Embark on a discovery of Kerala’s food culture and local life in Kochi and beyond with your new local friends who help you cook a delicious authentic meal! During this very special cookery class, learn everything you need to know to cook up an authentic Keralan dinner. Indulge yourself in a hands-on cooking lesson in the ‘land of spices’ and learn how to cook classic Keralan cuisine with a local.

Dishes will sometimes vary, depending on the season, but expect to create a snack/starter such as a chicken patti. Then a delicious Keralan curry for your main course, one local side dish, traditional Indian bread and an aromatic dessert to finish. It is possible to create an entirely vegetarian meal if you wish, just mention it during booking. As you cook, you will learn about the food culture of the region and the spice trade that’s been operating here for over 4,000 years.

You will also pick up some handy cooking tips from the chef to ensure that when you make your feast back home, you are doing it in the most authentic way possible. Once your meal is ready, sit down together to enjoy the food you have cooked and get to know one another over dinner. Before you go, the chef will share all the recipes from your cooking class with you as well as tips on what else to do and eat during your stay in India.
