Nimi's classes was a awesome experience for our group of 3. Learning the traditional dishes and spice blends was just as amazing as getting involved, cooking them and then in the end enjoying the savory result of your hard work at her dinner table. What more!!!! We bought fresh spices from a store recommended by her at such reasonable prices and were given one of her published books as a gift.
What could be better than mind blowing food for dinner and taking back home the the best spices as remembrance of this wonderful experience .
Tip: buy spices in Munnar rather than from Kochi .

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time learning about Spices, flavour pairings, cooking procedures and Indian culture with Nimi. She is very hospitable and a great teacher.  We made such delicious food over a period of many hours and it was a great insight to the traditional slow cooking indian methods. I'd recommend the course to anyone.

Nimi is a fantastic person, great fun and a huge cooking inspiration! The class is an absolute must if you are in Munnar - not just because the lessons learned are valuable, and the food eaten is delicious, but because you get to meet a woman who is deeply passionate about what she does, and has been able to achieve immense successes in spite of the chalenges she inevitably faces. I hope to go back someday, but in the meantime Jaggery and curry will have to do instead.

(also buy your spices from the shop next door)

Whether you are interested in cooking (like I am) or eating only (like my wife) - don't hesitate and go to cook with Nimi! It's not "Jamie's 30-minute meals". It is "Nimi's 5-hour meals" but you will enjoy every minute of it, it will become one of your best memories from Kerala and you will impress your guests back home.

This is a must do whilst staying in Munnar! Great value.

We spent an evening cooking and chatting in Nimi's beautiful home. The kitchen is outside by the river and picturesque. You learn multiple dishes and about all the spices of the region. The class is hands on so you really learn about the styles of Kerelan cooking.

Afterwards you sit down and eat the dinner with Nimi. So much food though!

Nimi was great in chatting about the area and informed us about other interesting things to do in the area. She even helped us buy the best value spices to take home!

A great book for free to take away too!
