What to expect
Meet Srividya at Rasi Silks (popular saree store) in Mylapore and Srividya will give you a tour of the local Mylapore market, a lively and bustling street market. The market houses the Kapaleeshwara temple and dozens of shops that sell everything from flowers, fruits, vegetables, spices, utensils to jewelry, garments and toys. Shopping at Mylapore is a quintessential Chennai shopping experience! Walk around this market with your host Srividya and soak in all the sights, smells and tastes. Sip on South Indian coffee from a local vendor and purchase ghee or vegetables for your cooking class in Srividya's home. Join Srividya in her home kitchen to learn to make two to three South Indian Tamilian dishes from scratch. You will learn to use spices such as mustard seeds, coconut and black pepper in Srividya's kitchen as you cook traditional curries and rice. After cooking, enjoy the dishes you helped prepare with Srividya at her dining table along with a few other dishes that Srividya will have prepared in advance. Expect a rich taste of Tamil Nadu cuisine served on a vibrant banana leaf (when seasonably available)!
