Immerse yourself in Indian culture and dine with a local family with this unique 5-hour tour. It will introduce you to the Indian lifestyle, the traditions of home life, and the importance of family in Indian culture. Naturally, you will learn about the food too!
Happily, for all its progress, India still doesn’t have long aisles of canned foods in its stores. We invite you to spend a day with an extended Indian family and partake in the culinary pleasures they are keen to share.
You will be welcomed into their home in a traditional way and enjoy a refreshing non-alcoholic drink while interacting with the family.
First you will be introduced to the spice box, ready to yield its fragrant secrets. While researchers bend over microscopes to ferret out the healing properties of cumin and turmeric, we merrily pop them into our woks, confident that they will heal wounds and cure coughs, because grandma said so.
You will participate in the cooking of your dinner with your teacher/host and be taught how to cook Indian curries, lentil soup, Indian paneer (cottage cheese), chicken curry, fish curry, rice biryani, chapattis, and a vegetable in curd.
If you are vegetarian, the dinner menu will be changed to accommodate you. If you have any particular dish you would like to learn, with a little notice that can be included too. Every Thursday the class is fully vegetarian.
This is not just a tour, but also a learning experience and an adventure into the spiritual aspects of a typical Indian family. At the end of the trip you are free to explore on your own, or your host will arrange a cab back to your hotel.
