      Fabulous, fun & informative cooking experience with Neha Gupta
      My husband and I were lucky to have the undivided attention of the charming Neha Gupta in her studio kitchen on our last night of our fabulous tour of Delhi... Neha's hospitality was so warm and generous... We enjoyed such an informative and fun evening preparing some delicious native Indian dishes... Would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

      Amazing authentic experience
      Super friendly and knowledgeable chef Neya! I was so excited to experience an Indian cooking class, while I arrived a day early in New Delhi. We cooked, chatted, laughed and talked about our respective countries. Then we sat down for a delicious meal of the dishes that we had prepared. Time went by so quickly I wished it wasn’t time to leave! Definitely going to remake the dishes that we prepared. Naya provided printed recipes and photos and also told me about her zoom cooking class which I plan to participate in with my family now that I’m home. Definitely don’t miss this experience while in New Delhi!

      Excellent cooking class!
      Loved taking Neha's cooking class! She is very warm and welcoming, and makes the recipes feel simple. We made a delicious butter chicken, spiced potatoes, and some breads. Everything was delicious! Cooking and eating with Neha felt like visiting with friends.

      Unique and authentic cooking experience
      We signed up for an Indian cooking experience given a recommendation from our local travel agent. We weren’t sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised to be invited to the home of Neha who welcomed us! The backdrop of her terrace flat was beautiful. She took the time to get to know us then fit a menu in our timeline. We cooked traditional butter chicken, aloo masala and 3 types of bread. We each had a role and it felt like we were like family. She demystified the ingredients for our friend who are not Indian and made the hands- on class engaging. We enjoyed the meal together in a traditional thali plate overlooking her garden. Her hospitality and home cooked feeling of the dishes is a treasured memory and one of the highlights of our trip. We didn’t get to experience the spice market due to our schedule unfortunately. Thanks Neha!

      Great + patient teacher, awesome cultural experience, and good food!
      Mega was an excellent and patient teacher! This was my family’s first time in India and the class was an amazing experience of Indian culture and food. Personally I don’t cook super often so I was glad that neha walked us through each step slowly. And it came out super tasty! I was also really end glad that Neha taught through the cultural significance of ingredients and how / when the food is eaten. Awesome host, awesome experience, and good food + conversation!

    10/10 experience! Neha graciously invited us into her beautiful home where we cooked a traditional Indian meal complete with breads! She was an excellent instructor and taught everything clearly and concisely! We then got to enjoy our home cooked meal amongst other guests. Would highly recommend this to anyone who is a foodie and wants to bring back a taste of India to their home.

    My wife and I are traveling the world and have participated in cooking classes in many countries. Neha’s cooking class has been the best one yet! There’s a reason she is the #1 cooking class in Delhi.

    From the second we walked in, Neha made us feel welcomed and at home. She was very accommodating with our schedule and she customized the menu to our special requests. Her cooking studio is perfectly setup and she had everything cleaned, prepared, and ready to go. She also did an excellent job of explaining each recipe and all of the spices that went into each dish. Not only was she informative, but she made the class VERY fun! Her energy and passion was contagious!! Almost as contagious as Zoe’s (her dog), which we fell in love with.

    We left with a full belly and big smile on our face. The food was delicious and we can’t wait to do a virtual class with her and our family from the US!! Thanks for everything, Neha!

    The cooking experience at Saffron Pallette was amazing. Neha was so warm and welcoming and we instantly felt at home. She talked us through the dishes whilst helping us cook them and giving us tips for the rest of our trip. The food was incredible and we enjoyed a lovely meal together. Would 100% go back and recommend to anyone traveling to Delhi!

    This cooking class was truly a highlight of our India trip — with two families, including children ranging from 7 to 17. Neha was warm and welcoming in her home, and she was truly able to engage everyone in the group and meet them where they were.

    We started with a cold bottle of water and a discussion of expectations for the day. When it became clear that some of our kids may not last for the longest class, she charted a path to finishing cooking in 1.5 hrs and having lunch — and honestly, we made it with ease.

    Everything was set up perfectly — 3 stations (2-3 per station), all the ingredients ready (prepared just enough but not too much), and even custom aprons and chef’s hats, in a modern and welcoming space.

    Neha provided excellent, clear direction for the adults and kids alike. She was supportive but empowering. And she kept calm throughout.

    Afterwards, we had a lovely lunch, including cold juices and a nice dessert. And she told us about her own (extensive) travels and asked about ours. Most impressively — all fo the kids tried the food that THEY made, including the pickiest ones.

    Neha sent us the recipes by email — everything we cooked and asked about. She also sent us pictures she took throughout.

    We were simply delighted, and cannot recommend this experience highly enough. It was well worth the time and money alike.

    I have had the pleasure to take 2 classes now at Saffron Palate. Neha is an excellent host and teacher. She is knowledgable in all aspects of Indian food and loves to share it. She welcomes you into her home to not only learn how to make an amazing dish simple, but to experience a real family visit. Even her cute dog Zoe plays a part in it. Thank you Neha, you can expect me to come back over and over again every time I'm in India, I treasure your little recipe book and can't wait for more simple and delicious recipes.

    Yesterday, I had a superb cooking class with Neha at Saffron Palate!
    Neha shared all her knowledge with us in the group and we made three dishes and baked our nan bread.
    For me personally, I appreciated that it is a very hands on experience, but Neha is there to help if anything goes wrong. The class also gave very good insight into the different spices you use in Indian cooking! It is also in a private setting which made for a very relaxed and enjoyable evening.
    I can warmly recommend Neha’s experiences to anybody who is interested in learning more about Indian cooking.

    Learning to cook Indian food with Neha was a highlight of my time in Delhi. Neha is a fabulous host and her home with the purpose built kitchen on the roof terrace was a beautiful space. 3 of us spent time learning how to cook delicious dishes and naan which we were able to chose from a list in advance of our lesson. At the end of the lesson we all sat down to enjoy what we had prepared. We were well fed and Neha kept the heat from the Delhi sun and kitchen stoves at bay from us with free flowing water and a delicious mocktail. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your family recipes Neha. Your tips for where to shop and what to buy were also invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend this experience to others and will definitely book again when I return to Delhi.

    This class was one of the best things I did in my two months in Delhi. Neha was a fantastic teacher. I have never considered myself a good cook, but Neha explained everything so well that when I tried my food, I thought it was straight from a restaurant. 10/10 experience!

    I truly cannot say enough great things about our experience with Chef Neha. Her instructions were very clear and our kitchen stations had everything we needed to make what turned out to be a delicious meal. There were 11 people total in our class and all the other guests were sociable and fun. The roof top setting was the icing on the cake. If you enjoy Indian food, definitely make the time for this learning experience!
