This experience was really unique! Chhaya and Varsha welcomed us into their home as if we were part of the family and showed us how to cook traditional Indian food. They made it look simple and quick and the food was absolutely delicious. The fact that they gave us the spices to take home was great! We replicated the dishes at home and everyone loved it. We really recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys Indian food and would like to get to know more about it and taste the real thing. We hope to be back soon to try the other menus. Thank you both for your incredible hospitality! =) Ivan and Elena

This experience was the best valentine's experience we have ever had. Such a unique, insightful and stimulating activity. It was great to learn more about the history of the dishes, the source of seasonings and their various uses within their culture; simply observing how other cultures prepare dishes similar to those within my own culture, was so interesting. They were the best hosts, made us feel so welcome. I can't wait to book again!

Fabulous experience, learning about spices and how to use them. Really enjoyed watching how the foods are prepared and tasting the finished flavorful foods. A glass of prosecco with the meal was a lovely touch! Can't wait to try the recipes at home!

We loved it all thank you very much to Chhaya and Varsha for being great hosts and sharing family recipes and top tips, we are looking forward to recreating the dishes at home. We will defiantly be back. Thank you.

I booked this experience for my boyfriend's birthday and wow, we had the most wonderful evening with Chhaya and her sister Varsha. They are both such amazing cooks and so friendly and happy to answer any questions and to share little tips and tricks with us. We learnt so much! The food was just awesome! I eat a lot of Indian food and I can honestly say that this was the best I have ever had! It was so lovely to be given the little bags with spices and the recipes at the end too, so we could make the dishes for ourselves at home. Thank you both for such a wonderful evening and a great cooking experience, we both really loved it.
