KERALA COOKING ADVENTURE

Overview

Kerala Cooking Adventure

  • Residential Hands-on Cooking
  • Starts on Sundays

You will have a hands-on exploration of Kerala cuisine, with a visit to a spice farm that uses bio-organic techniques. You will get a chance to be in a green and pleasant environment, where you can see spices grown using natural traditional farming methods and permaculture. The hosts are very knowledgeable, and they will introduce you to the plants in their forest garden and explain the sustainable methods of growing them. You will also explore the neighbouring villages, see the pineapple market, rubber plantations and rice fields, take an auto-rickshaw ride and see other local activities. After the tour of the area, you will be introduced to the traditional Kerala kitchen. 

This is an interactive, hands-on cooking session, where the ingredients and the techniques will be explained to you. Try your hand at the dishes, or just watch or both and photograph, depending on what you prefer. After the cooking session, you can enjoy a delicious lunch, and then return to your hotel or continue your journey as the place is accessible to many destinations.
