      Fantastic experience with a passionate and amazing cook.
      Shalini was a brilliant host and an amazing cook.... she made it all look so easy! Welcomed to her house and shown how to make some Chai and pakoras before we went off to the shops. Discussed all the various spices and vegetables and chose some to cook for dinner. Helped prepare and cook some of the food but it was as much fun watching Shalini effortlessly cook the food. All done on just 3 gas rings. Needless to say it was all delicious and I would highly recommend.

      Wonderful way to spend an evening in Jaipur.
      We had a great time with Shalini, when we arrived at her home she showed us how to make a delicious local tea, we then went shopping for food in some of the local shops that she and her family visit. We then spent time preparing and cooking a lovely meal, Shalini is obviously an excellent chef and was very informative. We then sat down with her and her family to eat all the food we had made together. We had a lovely time and Shalini was so friendly. We felt totally at ease with her.

      Cooking and a Glimpse into Daily Life
      When you only have a few days in a city it’s hard to actually get an experience that gives you a glimpse into the lives of locals. Doing the cooking class with Shalini and her family was an experience that allowed for that. If you want to learn how to cool Indian cuisine that is the focus. If you want to experience a little of life in India that happened as well. Also the food was awazing, some of the best eggplant I’ve ever had. Shalini and her family were happy to have us in their home and we felt comfortable and welcomed the whole time.

      Awesome evening with Shalini and family!
      Shalini’s home cooking experience was a real highlight of our 10-day trip in India. Shalini is so warm and welcoming, as is her family. Communication was easy and efficient and Shalini answered any questions we had in a timely manner. She also accommodated a gluten allergy that one member of our group has. Her energy and teaching made the entire experience so fun. After the meal was prepared it was nice to sit and share a meal together with her, their eldest son and husband and talk about each others daily life, share stories and ask questions. While sharing a meal could feel a bit forced or awkward in some situations, with Shalini and her family it was a special addition to a wonderful experience. Thanks, Shalini, for an unforgettable evening.

      Highly recommend this cooking class and meal with Shalini
      My husband and I really enjoyed our cooking class in Shalini's home! Shalini made chai and pakora as starters, and then we made chapati (plain flatbread and one with potato in it), dal fry with 3 kinds of lentils, and dum aloo (potato curry). We had requested to make something using seasonal ingredients, so she also taught us to make red carrots and peas. The food was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed learning from Shalini and sitting down with her family for the meal. They also gave us some great tips for traveling around Jaipur. I would highly recommend this cooking experience if you're in Jaipur!

      Fabulous evening, fabulous food.
      This is an absolute must do if visiting Jaipur. Shalini is a fabulous cook and teacher, and her and her family made us feel so welcome in their home. It was fascinating to watch Shalini cook and give us tips to try at home ourselves.

      Delicious food with welcoming locals!
      We had a wonderful time with Shalini and her family! Shalini greeted us with fresh chai and vegetable pakora, and then we walked to the market to pick up vegetables for dinner. She showed us how to make mutter paneer, dal fry, bhindi masala, and chapati, and everything was delicious. We had dinner with her sweet family, and they made us feel like part of the family. This was a beautiful experience and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants a truly authentic Indian family experience!

      Incredible evening in Jaipur cooking with Shalini
      Shalini was an incredible host - we learned so much about Indian cooking and experienced a slice of life in Jaipur. She and her husband took us to her local market where we learned about different grains and spices and then visited a vegetable market where we picked out veggies for our dinner. She showed us how she makes masala chai and we enjoyed meeting her family. Dinner was incredible with so many delicious flavors. Thank you for an amazing evening Shalini ❤️

      Excellent and memorable cooking experience
      We had an excellent, memorable experience cooking with Shalini in her family’s home. Shalini is great at explaining the ingredients and steps in Indian cooking, and made us feel completely at home. It was very special to have dinner with the whole family in their home, and we learned a lot!

      Great local cooking experience
      My bf and I had the best time walking around the local stores with Shalini, learning more about typical daily life in India and the cooking that goes along with it. We loved the food we ate at the end of the night along with Shalini and her family, overall it was a great experience that enriched our travels!

      Brilliant
      Shalini is a great cook with a lot of experience. We have had the most memorable souvenir on our visit to India, wonderfully calm and very thorough on explaining from the basics of Vegetarian cooking. Sorry there is no more than 5 stars she deserves 500.

      Outstanding Experience
      We had a lovely evening in the home of Shveta and her husband. The welcome was warm and we were made to feel very comfortable. The cooking class was terrific. We learned to make several dishes and came home with recipes to try to recreate them at home. Would highly recommend this event!

      Gem of India
      The Taj Mahal was lovely but the real gem of India is Shalini and her family. I was traveling alone and I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet her, her husband, her wonderful sons, and her in-laws. We had a nice time walking through the market and I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to help prepare and cook dinner. It was a beautiful evening in a beautiful city.

      Best experience in India so far
      Our cooking evening with Shalini has been our BEST experience in India so far! It is so much more than just food. We shared such a memorable time with Shalini and her incredible family (two sons, husband, mother in law and father in law). The dinner we prepared was absolutely delicious and so different to the bland Indian food you often find in the UK. I can’t recommend this experience enough! You will not want to miss out on this. It was fantastic to have been able to prepare each item on the menu by hand and then have the excitement of eating it after. Shalini patiently helps you along the cooking process, with expert tips too from her mother in law! What a wonderful evening.

    The experience was beyond my expectations. Shalini took me to the market and shops in her neighborhood and gave me detailed explanation about spices and Rajasthani veggies. The best part of the evening was having dinner with her family eating from what we cooked during the class. I was very proud because I managed to get an aloo paratha perfectly round on my first attempt.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!
