Highlight of Bengaluru trip

Highlight of our trip to Bengaluru! Enjoyed the cooking demonstration and was served an incredible meal. We felt very welcomed and now we have lots of recipes to try at home. Definitely recommend this class if you are in Bengaluru.
Fun and delicious team building experience

We had a very fun, entertaining and delicious evening with Archana, her husband and son. All three of them were very kind and gracious and very welcoming. Archana showed us how to make her favorite dishes with lots of heart and soul and did I mention how delicious everything was? In addition to being an excellent chef she is just plain fun to talk with. If I ever visit Bangalore again I will add another visit with Archana to my itinerary.
Beautiful memories with Archana

Archana and her auntie were extremely kind and caring. She showed me her beautiful garden and most of the vegetables and herbs we used for cooking were from there.

She shared me not only the recipes but also the background of the traditional Gowda dishes, which really fascinated me.

I loved everything we cooked on that day.
Highly recommended.
Authentic cooking and dining experience in a real home, with a real family
Abhay_M, 11-06-2022
We are of North Indian heritage, but have been living in the US for over 30 years, and find that South India can really be a different country from the North.  So we are really just tourists in South India, and wanted to get a good understanding of the South.

As a tourist, it's difficult to get an authentic experience of a place. A tourist's dream is to get embedded in a real family for a day, talk about real things, get a feel for the everyday life through real happenings, experience the actual making of a menu, followed by the cooking of a real meal, ending with the enjoyment of eating what was prepared together, with all the cultural undertones of how family members interact with each other and how they interact with guests.
We had exactly such an authentic experience with Archana, Rajesh and family. It was an evening we are going to cherish for a long time. 

It started on their terrace garden where they grow at least 50 species of vegetables, herbs and flowers. Progressed into an evening of light conversation about real topics where you can get to know each other. Then came the preparation of the meal with most family members involved, just like a real day. Finally, we sat down for the meal with the very authentic and doting family. Can't say enough good things about the evening.

Overall summary: if you want to experience the real South India, in a real home, with a real family, and learn how to cook some real dishes, you can't find a much better experience than this one. 

Five stars and highly recommended
Delicious food with a wonderful family
KathCass324, 22-04-2022
This was probably the most special thing we’ve done in our three weeks in India. Archana, Rajesh, and the rest of their family were so welcoming, and the home-cooked food was spectacular. The night began with a tour of their rooftop garden, where Archana showed us all of the delicious-smelling plants and herbs she grows. Then she welcomed us into her kitchen and showed us how to make a wide range of traditional vegetarian dishes from the region, most of them using plants from the garden, and told us a lot of stories about her family and tales of the city along the way. The food was amazing and the company could not have been better. We were very grateful for the evening and can’t recommend it enough to anyone staying in Bengalore who wants to know more about its people, food, and history. We'll remember it forever!
