Culinary Day Workshops
This workshop offers a hands-on exploration of Kerala cuisine, with a visit to a
spice farm that uses bio-organic techniques. This is a green and pleasant
environment, where you can see spices grown using natural traditional farming
methods and permaculture. Your 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 in
the area, 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. For the students and Budget
travellers under 30 we have two rooms on the first floor of the house Please
note, the cuisine is vegetarian. We offer this to max 8 people. This program can
be done on a demo basis to bigger groups also on request.
