What you'll do

Affectionately known as the ‘Culinary Queen of Goa’, I have delved into the influences that the Portuguese occupation (17th century) have left in local kitchens. In this interaction through a demo and tastings I will share the history behind the food How did these curries and masalas reach the traditional Goan table? The participation and the one on one interaction will create a great experience and with recipes shared at the end to explore the nuances of ingredients used. These are traditional grandmother recipes passed down through generations. The Inspiration behind these Goan favorites of seafood and during monsoons...meat….the red, yellow, orange masalas will be a mouth drooling experience.

Where you'll be

A glass of wine or juice as I recount all information on the 'how and why' of the recipes from old grandmother's kitchens, you savor the traditional flavors from the other talukas of Goa. Take home memories and stories .it is yours to question...myth of fact, the demo is in a modernized kitchen. We sit out in the garden, otherwise indoors to eat together at the end of the experience. Looking forward and enjoy the fabled Goan hospitality.
