Much more than just a guest house, The Pimenta runs a range of cooking programmes on site. The comprehensive, one-week Kerala Cooking Adventure aims to connect you with Kerala’s history and culinary culture through hands-on cooking and excursions to local markets and hill stations. The intensive four-day Kerala Cooking Residency is for those with a little less time on their hands who are eager to get to grips with the Keralan style of cooking. Finally, the two-day Curry Magic is a chance for short-term guests to get a feel for the spices and methods intrinsic to Indian curries.
