Your Mumbai sojourn is near completion – You have seen the sights and sounds of the city, you have learned about the glorious past, you have experienced the unique character of its people. But isn’t there something amiss? Probably a look into a very important part of the culture … food?
Which is why, we have organised a cooking date for you with the lady of a contemporary Mumbai household. 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 apron-up, and assist her with quintessential recipes from the region. With a host of masalas, special recipes, and traditional techniques, this class will give you an insight into local Cuisine.
Immerse yourself in Indian culture with this unique cooking workshop. Interaction with the local family, 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!
At an extra cost, we can organise a spice market for you just before your lunch. So that you can get intimate with the spices and understand the history, legend and the uses of each and every spice in erstwhile and present day Indian cooking.
