Amazing hosts with wonderful cuisine

Jayshree was a wonderful teacher. Her husband showed us around a local vegetable market with explanations of all the regional fruits and veggies. Upon arrival to the beautiful home, we were given a welcoming tea. The hosts shared many amazing stories and experiences. Throughout the whole session, Jayshree kept a close watch but let us do most of the cooking. The dishes that we prepared were true representations of southern Indian cuisine. She even shared some of her secret recipes which I look forward to making at home. I would certainly recommend this experience to everyone and would suggest to come hungry! You'll surely be satisfied.

Cooking in Chennai: a Highlight

Jayashree and Rabi, our hosts/teachers, are fabulous. We learned not just to cook several Indian dished. We also enjoyed an outstanding thali for lunch, interesting conversations about Indian cultures and families, and laughter. Jayashree sent us back to our hotel with leftovers and we had a second superb meal. This is a highlight of time in Chennai.
