Enjoy a private and authentic home-cooked meal with your host Dr. Madhuri in her home. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Madhuri is a dental surgeon and has been practicing for 25 years. She lives with her husband, Vinayak, and two children, Ketki and Kunal, in their sprawling apartment in Prabadevi, which has spectacular views of the sea. She grew up eating fish and rice and later got married into a vegetarian family, so she enjoys cooking both vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals. Apart from cooking and feeding her close ones, she also enjoys traveling, trekking, reading and watching movies. Madhuri learned most of her cooking from her mother-in-law, as she was married very young and as dedication of all of the recipes she learned over the years, she created a family cookbook for her mother-in-law’s 71st birthday, which is called Vaarasa (वारसा), which means ‘inheritance’.
