What To Expect

They say one of the best ways to know a culture is through its cuisine – so expect to enjoy a slice of authentic Nepali life in this authentic, local cooking class! Opt for a morning or afternoon class which includes a visit to a local market where you'll get an authentic experience shopping for the freshest ingredients. Hop on a fun rickshaw ride back to the cooking school where you'll learn to whip up everyday home-cooked meals, featuring authentic local foodstuff like dhalbhat, a savory rice special served with lentils, curry meat or fish, and various spices; momos, the local version of Japanese gyozas; and sel roti, the sweet bread treat. You'll also pick up some Nepali phrases along the way!

    Amrit and Anu are such gracious hosts and really let you get your hands dirty in the kitchen. They tweaked their menu to make it entirely vegetarian for us. The location is in an apartment complex which was damaged by the recent earthquake. Once Nepal is back on your travel radar, check them out and help them get back on their feet!

    My husband and I did the half day course this morning. I think this should be on everyone's must-do list in Kathmandu. It isn't just a cooking course, but a great way to learn about the Nepalese way of life. We had 6 people on our course which was a good amount and there was lots of hands on learning. We were picked up from our hotel and met Amrit for a tour of the market place. We were able to learn about the different ingredients and taste test items that were unknown to us. Next we returned to Amrit's home, where his very clever daughter taught us to make vegetable steamed momos, dahl bat, rice pudding and special ceremonial bread. We were able to feast on each course as we made it. There was much laughter about our dubious skills in folding momos, and dropping the ceremonial bread into the hot oil is clearly an art form we were yet to master, but it made for a very entertaining morning. I look forward to trying more Nepalese cooking when I get home to NZ. To be invited into someone's home to learn about their food and culture feels very privileged (and we were made to feel extremely welcome) and I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Kathmandu.

    The half day Nepalese cooking course with Amrit, Anu and their son was one of the highlights of my trip to Nepal, the family were so welcoming and friendly and the food absolutely delicious. Amrit picked me up from my hotel and we went around the markets where the locals buy their produce to get all the ingredients, a great experience in itself. I'm not a great cook but Amrit and Anu were patient and made sure I was involved and understanding what was happening. And then the highlight of course, eating the food! Thank you for a lovely morning, looking forward to seeing you next time I'm in Nepal.

    根本被網站介紹給騙了,文宣寫說:「在導賞員陪同下前往當地市場親自挑選烹飪課程所需食材」,到了現場才被告知一切食材都準備好了,這根本有廣告不實的嫌疑!!! 而且也不是一起烹煮,而是直接作菜給我們看,在我們的要求下,才幫忙到切菜、炒菜。還有教導作菜的家庭因為私人因素,只能烹煮素食,這件事情也沒有事前被告知到。 見到當地的供應商跟我們說課程後還有什麼行程可以跟他說,他可以協助幫忙。所以煮完飯大概11:30我們就告知他,希望12:00請司機來接我們到Tamel,但司機一直到12:30才抵達。而且司機也不知道要帶我們去Tamel,可見根本沒有作好連絡。 參加這個課程是我們在尼泊爾旅途的最後一天,對於當地的消費和服務都大概明白,所以認為這課程根本不值得花這麼多錢去體驗!!!如果要收這樣的價格,就該拿出相對應的服務態度。 評分真讓人一顆星都不想給... The actual conditions are inconsistent with the AD.
