Delicious meal and wonderful experience
Feb 2021
Shalini taught us how to make Mattar Paneer and Naan and, although we were total amateurs, the outcome was delicious! It was a great time and Shalini was helpful and patient. We had a lot of fun and have already made the recipe again. I would recommend this class!

Was a great experience. Loved learning the secrets of a good chai tea and learning about the different spices for the different curries we made. Shalini welcomes us into her home and her family were all so lovely. Would definitely recommended.

Magnificent friendly family food experience
We had a wonderful time visiting Shalini and her family in Jaipur.
From walking into her neighbourhood and seeing all the children play, we were invited into her home where she lives with her husband, in-laws and 2 children.
Shalini and her mother in-law prepared a chai tea and a snack for us before we went out to the market and saw where she usually buys all her of her spices and lentils. We then went to the fruit and vegetable store and chose our ingredients for the evening meal.
We were able to participate in preparing and cooking our dinner. From chopping vegetables to making paratha.
We enjoyed chatting with Shalini’s family while we all ate at the dining table.
Overall, we felt very welcome, everything was hygienic and our host took wonderful care of us.
We left with full stomachs, new friends and wonderful memories.
Thank you Shalini 😊

Fantastic experience with a wonderful, warm family. From the moment we stepped into their home, all of the families members made us feel welcomed. This introduction into Indian cooking was full of fun, laughs, information and yummy food. Being able to join in the preparation and cooking of the food and then to sit with the family while we conversed and ate was such an enjoyable experience. Highly recommend this to anyone who wants to experience an at home, truly memorable night.

Amazing, a must to in Jaipur
Apr 2019 • Couples
I cannot thank Shalini and her family for hosting me and my boyfriend. It's a real hands on experience and you really get to experience Jaipur culture. We were unsure of the location so Shalini came and met us at a nearby hotel which made the experience so much more stress free. The food was amazing and it was such a fun experience. You get to try and also make a range of traditional meals and breads and then get to eat all your efforts. My boyfriend and I had such a good time and would recommend to anyone visiting the Jaipur area. Doing it in her home makes the experience so much more worthwhile and it's a brilliant value for money for what you get. Her fanily also made sure we had safe transport home and walked us to our pick up. A real treat

Amazing Experience
I can not recommend this experience enough!! It was so lovely to be welcomed into Shalini’s home and meet her family, everyone was so friendly and kind! The cooking experience was fantastic, I went with my friend and we both had such a fun evening learning how to make Chapati and Parathas to go with the delicious dishes we were cooking! Shalini made us some lovely chai tea and pakora snack as well on arrival which was a very nice touch. If you want an authentic experience with a lovely family and some delicious food then this is the experience for you! Thank you Shalini!

Nice evening in Jaipur
Dec 2018 • Family
It was great to meet Shalini and her lovely family for a memorable evening / experience. Shalini was very welcoming and provided lots of details on how her family lives on a daily basis. Very interesting experience. Overall, great food, good people and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended if you happen to be in Jaipur and want to do something a bit off the beaten path. One comment though, I would maybe not call this activity a 'cooking class' as you do not really learn how to cook / assist in the preparation of Rajasthani dishes but this would rather be a culinary experience that allows you to see how a family lives in Jaipur.
