Shalini is a wonderful host! She has a lovely family, they made us feel right at home.

The tour itself was very informative, we learned about all the different ingredients she uses, many of which we had never heard of! We got to choose two vegetables for our meal and both ended up being delicious dishes. We also picked up a fresh coconut for drinking its water and fruits for snacking, which the children also appreciated.

As there were four of us, we were a bit crowded in the kitchen, so we each spent time focusing on a particular dish rather than the whole meal. However, in making breads, we all got a turn, which made for a fun friendly competition!

We're so glad we decided to do this cooking class. Shalini's home made for a much warmer and cozier environment than those cooking classes done out of professional kitchens with stations for pairs/groups. Our family loved feeling like we were a part of Shalini's family for the evening. We would absolutely return given the chance in the future!

Two of us had a great evening cooking with Shalini and her mother-in-law and then sharing a meal with her family. The food was simple, but super tasty! This cooking class is a great way to experience India from inside. Highly recommended!

We loved our evening with Shalini and her family. Our neighborhood shopping trip was enlightening-who knew there was a department store behind those modest doors? Her husband was engaging, the boys delightful and the prep partnership with her mother was endearing. My husband was a reluctant participant and he enjoyed the evening as much as I did. The cooking experience was well organized. I still marvel at the process of four people preparing a multi course meal in a small kitchen with no oven and only two burners. But Shalini managed it with grace and ease! The food was delicious. She even accommodated my request for no hot spices. The evening exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend.

The great thing about cooking with Shalini was not only the market tour, working in her large spacious kitchen, learning how create an authentic home cooked Indian meal, talking with her family BUT the follow-up text that included "how to" instructions for replicating all of the delicious foods we prepared together. Jaipur is a fascinating city, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Shalini and her family in Incredible India. Namaste !

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 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.

This was one of our favorite memories while visiting India. Shalini and her family welcomed us into their home. We toured her neighborhood to a market, and a fresh vegetable stand. She designed our meal around the vegetables we chose. We all ( 5 of us) took turns preparing our dinner in her kitchen, under her guidance. What a great teacher, wonderful family, and great food.
I highly recommend this evening
Thank you

Shalini is a beautiful soul and was so caring and delightful to us. Helped in the kitchen and we really enjoyed the supermarket tour and the selection of vegetables from the local vegie shop. we got to choose which vegies we would like to cook. She makes it very comfortable and we also enjoyed her mother-in-law who is also a major cook in the kitchen, and loved showing us some of her photos.
Wonderful to meet her normal family and share an idea how a typical Indain family lives and cooks?

Thank you Shalini we would definitly recommend to all our friends and if we make it back will come again?

We really enjoyed the class. Shelani catered for my tricky diet - vegan & gluten free. The food was delicious. we tried new veggies - bottlegourd & tinde. Her family was welcoming and it was a lovely experience.

We booked a cooking class with Shalini and her family for our friend who’s birthday it was. She welcomed us into her home and we had the best time. We learnt so much about Indian culture and food - we couldn’t recommend the experience more! Shalini even had a surprise birthday cake delivered for our friend. We were blown away by her warm hospitality and will definitely be back. 11/10!
