One of the best experiences I had in my entire time in India. Nimmy taught me so much about keralan food and it was a privilege to learn to cook some of her recipes. The food was delicious and the company inspiring. I wish nimmy a the best with her current and future cookbooks!

One of the best experiences of my South Indian trip. A truly knowledgeable and passionate teacher and chef. Internationally acclaimed cookbook writer. Ask questions, soak up the whole experience and spend time to get to know Nimi's story. You will not be disappointed. We spent 6hrs there talking, learning and cooking. Four exquisite dishes with free cookbook!

A wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Nimi is an inspiring woman and it was a pleasure to learn how to cook some traditional dishes with her. Lovely to round off the afternoon sampling the fruits of our labour round the kitchen table. Would highly recommend!

Not only is Nima a wonderful chef and delightful teacher, but she is a very accomplished woman entrepreneur in a culture that makes success a very difficult accomplishment. Her personal story is, well, personal - but, suffice to say that she has navigated many hardships and each day she searches for whatever opening may exist to bring joy to other's... More

Nimi is a wonderful person who fascinates one with her open-hearted personality. The cooking-course runs for 5 hours and Nimi is very thoughtful about explaining the purpose of each individual ingredient. A cookbook is included in the Price. Good value for money!

This was my last night in India after 5 weeks travelling in the country and was definitely the most amazing way of finishing my trip. The minute that I walked in Nimi’s kitchen, I knew I was going to have a great experience. She has this colorful, spotless open-air kitchen by the river, where you can hear the sound of... More

What an afternoon! We were led through Nimi's home to her clean and well equipped kitchen overlooking the river. Nimi started with a brief introduction of how she got to where she is today. It was inspiring to hear how much she has achieved in such a short period of time. Alongside her cooking classes, she is the Jamie Oliver... More

Nimi is a young and incredible self-made entrepreneur! Her class is very professional and we finish the session with our meal and a signed copy of her own self designed award winning cook book!
