Kolkata is a paradise for food lovers, as food plays a very pivotal role in everyday ongoings. Lavish spreads are common in Bengali culture and with so many dishes to choose from, there's so much to learn about Bengali cuisine. Your host, a local home chef, will guide you in the process of creating a meal, giving you hands-on instruction so you'll be able to learn exactly how the locals like to make these famous items. Learn how to make Begun Baja, which is fried aubergine, along with Cholar Daal (Bengal gram lentils in spices and ghee), Murgir Jhol (the most famous form of Bengali chicken curry), paired with some luchi, the ever-popular variation of flatbread. You'll also learn how to make Steamed Gobindo Bhoj with Ghee, which is an incredibly aromatic short grain rice, made rich with butter. There are numerous dishes to make and eat for the evening, but don't skimp out on the dessert, which will be scrumptious Rosogolla, cottage cheese balls in sweet sugar syrup. This sumptuous feast, made by yours and the cook's hands, is a true immersion into local dining.
