We took a class with our two kids, 8 and 10, and we all enjoyed the session. Learned a lot in a relaxing way which finished with a tasty lunch in the beautiful garden.

The lovely laid back Mr Khan taught me some great Kerala dishes which I will definitely have a go at. The class is not expensive and takes at least a couple of hours.

Khan is a chef in Varkala who provides cooking classes out of the Cliff Lounge Guest House. He is very sociable and friendly. He taught us how to make 4 different dishes with simple local ingredients and professional methods of cooking. The course itself could have been a little bit more hands on but the food was excellent and we... More
