This reflects the ethos of host Jacob Mathew, who has shared his passion for Indian cuisine and culture with visitors since 1994. To date, he has hosted over 3,000 guests and has been applauded by international publications. Jacob’s aim here is to introduce the beauty, culture and cuisine of the region the erstwhile Vadakkumkur know as the Kingdom of Pepper to the west.
A blend of history is also there
This tiny geographical area was the reason in changing the history of the world after the 14th century and discovery of two continents. Jacob’s objective in the kitchen is to empower his guests with a hands-on experience in traditional South Indian cooking, which can be transported into their own kitchen anywhere in the world. or give them an opportunity to relish the healthy and tasty food
“At its heart, The Pimenta is part retreat and part culinary celebration,” he says.
