My adult daughter and I took several cooking classes with Meera of Flavour Cooking Class on Quieros Street in Fort Kochi (Fort Cochin.) The classes could not be better. Meera is a lovely person and a super-organized and wonderful cook. She is a very kind teacher, letting her students actually do things hands-on - demonstrating but then allowing the student to do the actual cooking. She is very well-informed about cooking and the dishes she makes and gives very full, and yet not -overwhelming instruction, explaining how each dish can be adapted to deal with other ingredients or cooking conditions. The food that is made is delicious and ample and the cooks get to eat it afterwards.

She is very flexible and reliable in terms of setting up arrangements. Her English is very good. She cooks in her home and this was also very fun as her family was very kind and sweet - her husband helped us with some of the lessons--chapatis- - and her children are very cute.

Meera is incredibly honest and generous - extremely generous with her time. (For dosa and idly, we came over briefly for an extra session in the morning - free of charge - so she could show us an intermediate step in the preparation.) Her home is located well within the main tourist hotel area so is very easy to get to.

The classes are super-reasonably priced - even if you did not get your dinner as part of the bargain - they would be a very good deal. We cannot recommend her more highly. (My daughter is a little older than teens - in her twenties - but this would also be a great activity for a younger person - or older.) We took four classes - so learned about everything from bhaji, to different curries, idly, dosa, biriani, prawn curries, various chutneys, appams, and certain special Keralan dishes - but she is very open to whatever you wish to learn.

Meera is a fantastic teacher, really organised and prepared she showed us all the spices used and how to cook them. We learnt how easy dosa and idly's are to make, we'll definitely cook them when we get home.

The class is a great experience, something different from doing a tour or sight seeing. You are in Meera's home and feel quite welcomed. Everyone is encouraged to have a go at cooking too. If you love food then I recommend you try it.

We went to one of Meera's cookery classes and were not in any way disappointed. She has a great style. The class is perfectly structured; starting by asking what kind of things we want to cook ... so it was tailor made. At the class we started off by learning about all the ingredients, especially the spices. Then we got into action. I said I wanted to be involved, and didn't want a demonstration .. I got the former and not the latter, so it was ideal. We ended up having a delicious meal, and tonight I'm going to try to replicate some of it in a strange english kitchen!! I have no hesitation in recommending Meera cookery class for a very enjoyable and then delicious evening in Fort Kochi. Go on, do it - I'm sure you wont be disappointed.
