Great cultural experience! Abi was a SUPER hostess!
Abi was our guide/host. She has an Interesting background- started in banking and, after many years, has switched paths now focusing on her passion for cooking!

The market was fascinating. My daughter (11) and myself enjoyed seeing so many different fruits and veggies. We also popped into a local store to see all the different dried lentils and beans they use.

Abi had a driver that made it super convenient to get around between market and her home. Once in her home, which was beautiful and a perfect glimpse inside daily living, we cooked a few dishes together. Abi had also prepared food ahead of time so everything ran very smoothly/was well organized. We had a traditional meal and even got to eat it on banana leaf “plate.”I highly recommend this experience for anyone interested in learning about Indian cultural and cuisine.
