    What to Expect
    The class starts at 10:00am and, accompanied by your cooking teacher, you will go to the Goubert Market, a traditional Indian market of Pondicherry, by auto-rickshaw to buy ingredients and prepare a typical Indian lunch. It is a great occasion to discover the market and its scents and color. As we are located in Pondicherry, we propose mostly South Indian meals, but please discuss with the chef if you prefer North Indian cooking.

    After you finish ingredient shopping and return to the center, with the instruction of our chef Manisha, you will learn how to recognize Indian spices and vegetables, how to mix them, and how to prepare a delicious traditional South India style meal. Chef Manisha is happy to answer all your questions regarding food in India. After cooking you will share your meal served in banana leaves during a convivial moment at Sita’s garden. You will be given a booklet with the recipes of the day and detailed explanations about vegetables and spices.

    I took my friend here for a surprise French cooking lesson. He was pretty nervous at the beginning on arrival and was daunted by the idea of cooking at someone’s place. I had booked the class a month or so prior to our arrival and...More
