Course Overview

Learn some delightfully tasty and fun local recipes on this hands-on cooking holiday. You may want to get more "local" and know the city intimately by staying with a fun-loving, warm Indian family on this holiday. Alternately, depending on the size of your group, you could choose from our other accommodation options of staying in a furnished 'serviced-apartment' and dishing up your own food or stay at a hotel (3* and above).

Am I suitable to enroll?

What will I learn?

You will start your days with a fun visit to the local city market along with the Chef, where you will pick up fresh ingredients and the required spices for the day's recipes. You will learn the local vocabulary for all ingredients and know where to go to get the best of each. You will learn to cook full course menus each day, with a starter, main course and a mouth-watering dessert. You will be taken to local food joints and fun hang-outs in the city that are normally tucked-away and not known to many. The recipes are normally the Chef's favourites, so you will have that extra sprinkling of passion in the workshop! If the Chef thinks you're a good cook, you might just land an additional recipe!

What should I bring?

Please come in comfortable clothes and preferably bring along an apron.

"Thank you Pari for teaching us all those exciting, super delicious recipes. My friends and I (6 of us) spent the most fantastic 7 days with Culture Trails discovering different spices used in Indian cooking and visiting hidden restaurants and food-joints. Thank you for making this holiday so 'special' for us. Love and best wishes to all at Cutlure Trails!". – Beth, UK
