The character of cuisine in India is essentially regional; the sheer size of the country has forced every area to develop a style of cooking of its own. In times gone by transportation was a problem, and this meant that each area had to come up with a style of food which made do with the locally available materials. As a result, not only dishes, but flavours, colors, methods of cooking, down to even the style of cutting the vegetables changes as often as the landscape does. What has helped along this diversity is the amazing number of religions and the sects and sub-sects within them. Each sect often has strict dietary codes. For example, Hindu Brahmins are vegetarian and some do not eat onions, ginger and garlic.
In this tour, we will take you to an Indian home for a demonstration and tasting of traditional home-style Indian cooking. Before starting the cooking, your host will introduce you to the ingredients and essentials of home-cooking. Typically a full meal will be demonstrated to you. You can choose to participate, or simply watch, photograph and learn. Please note, this is not a formal class, but an opportunity to visit a home and see authentic regional cuisines that are often not available in restaurants.
All days of the week, either lunch or dinner. Timings are flexible based on your convenience.
