At Pimenta The Curry will never be the same - BBC RADIO

The leaders and pioneers in Homestay, Hands-on Cooking Programs, Culinary & Cultural Adventures in Kerala, India.

As with so many things in life, the secret to India is finding the balance. Here at The Pimenta, we want to help you do just that. Set in the foothills of the Western Ghats, The Pimenta offers the perfect getaway from the clamour of the big city and an opportunity to get off the beaten track. This is a home-stay with a difference. Set apart from the main house, the four bungalows that make up The Pimenta’s accommodation overlook the stunning tropical garden, abundant in spices and fruit. Below, the lounge / dining area invites you to while away the afternoon in the shade, while the adjoined kitchen urges you to brush up on your culinary skills with some authentic Indian recipes.

The Pimenta is, at heart, part retreat, part culinary celebration. Many visitors come here for cooking holidays, others come simply to let go. Host, Jacob Mathew, offers a wide range of experiences and activities, as well as package holidays, to ensure that each guest gets the most out of his or her time here. The Pimenta will appeal to holiday-makers and travellers who are eager to step off the tourist trail and are interested in sustainable tourism as well as local cuisine, trades and traditions. If you like your luxury with a bohemian twist, The Pimenta could be just what you’re after.
