Had the pleasure to meet both Mithoo and her charming husband which to now I’m embarrassed to say his name escapes me . We had a wonderful morning of trying delicious Bengali style croquets with a lovely tea then we got straight to work making a delicious lunch of coconut jumbo prawns , mustard potatoes , poori and list goes on, an absolute feast and then lunch was served the traditional way of eating in courses , followed by an amazing mango chutney with papadams . This had been one of the highlights of my trip . If ever in Calcutta and want to know what real hospitality and real cooking Is take this cooking class.

We had a wonderful evening with delicious food. We were welcomed with an unbelievable warmth and spoiled with Indian delicacies. Not only did we get an insight into Indian cuisine, but we had very enriching conversations. The family was very open and communicative. We felt like at home. This extraordinary experience gave us an authentic insight into Indian life. We would warmly recommend it to everyone. Because it creates a deep understanding of the culture and the people in this country. Many thanks for your hospitality!

We cooked four amazing curry’s and learned lots of great tips to improve our cooking approach. Very friendly approach from Shalet meant that we took the time to learn a lot about the ingredients and could not have been more helpful.

We had wonderful home meal with Mrs. Gurpreet and family in Amritsar. It was a lovely experience, visiting local people, cook and ate lunch at their house. We learnt how to cook Pakoda, Butter Chicken, Lemon Chicken and also Chapati. Complete set of meals, it was tasty, one of the best lunch that I had in India. Thank you so much Mrs. Gurpreet, also Authentic Cook for your brilliant idea to share home cook experience with us.

We spent a wonderful lunch with Amit, Neelam, and their son, eating some of the very best food during our entire visit to India, and getting to see it made by a gifted chef in a well-organized kitchen. Neelam is a brilliant cook, and was very generous in sharing what she knows. We learned to make fried bread from scratch using semolina flour and spices, and were walked through making a dish with potatoes, rich spices, and tomato puree. This description hardly does the meal justice. The three courses were incredibly delicious, from the stuffed rice flour dumplings, to the rich pumpkin curry, to the decadent hawla and other desserts - I personally overindulged, but how could one not? The food aside, Amit and Neelam are good people with a beautiful family and home, and it was a privilege to spend time with them. I cannot recommend the experience enough. How lucky us visitors to India are that they have decided to take part in this.
