Overview

    What to Expect
    Kim has been part of the travel industry for 25 years and enjoys meeting people, traveling to new places and discovering different cultures and cuisines. Kim learned to cook when she was 12 from her father who had always wanted to be a chef (but went on to become a Captain in the merchant navy), so he passed on his interest and passion to Kim. She is a Goan native and lives with her family (husband and two children) in a small village in South Goa. Her family enjoys her cooking so much that they encouraged her to open Kim's fine foods and confectionery five years ago, so she can share her passion with others .She caters food for groups as small as 2 and as large as 200, customizing the meal as per theme of the party.

    Kim and her family truly enjoyed being able to share their culture, cuisine and kitchen with you - so come join them for a unique experience and flavorful meal you'll remember forever!

    Notes: For families with children there will be a special menu for the child:

    (0-4 years): welcome drink, starters and french fries

    (5-11 years): welcome drink, starters, french fries, sharing the main course with the parent and dessert
