Awesome experience! Kabita and her husband are amazing people. The food was fabulous, the recipes were easy to remember and Kabita has been very flexible with the choices of the menu: I wanted to learn one particular dish and she arranged everything just for me. The result was way over the expectations. What I liked the most though, apart from the food, it's the time I spent talking to them. They are very open minded people and don't do this for money but for sharing experience, food, and LOVE. I felt like I was part of the family. Couldn't expect anything better, highly recommended!!! Thank you!

I travel a lot and actively take part in Airbnb experiences. Quite frankly, this is one of the best cooking experiences I have had!! I could feel the warmth of the experience already the moment I arrived. You will find yourself in her home, her personal kitchen, ready to absorb an Indian cooking experience that was sublime! It was a special experience to have focused on Bengali cuisine with the rich history, spices and recipes of the region. You could just appreciate the cuisine in a restaurant or the creation of an excellent meal with Kabita! I used to travel and remain in the "tourist" traps of hotels and restaurants, now I have found a way to enter into the lives and experiences of people of the country I am visiting. What a rich and wondrous afternoon! Thank you Kabita!

大変素晴らしい体験でした。 特にホストのKabitaさんご夫妻のお人柄が素晴らしく、拙い英語力の僕たちにもじっくり耳を傾けて1つずつ丁寧に教えてくれました! 作った料理は以下の6種。 ・ジャガイモカレー ・夏野菜カレー ・エッグカレー ・鯉カレー ・プーリー(揚げたチャパティの様なもの) ・キール(デザートの牛乳粥) どれもこれも美味しくて、インド来て以来一番美味しかったな。。毎日食べても飽きない、母の味。というやつでしょうか。 腹痛を押してたらふく食べました 笑 あと、食後の昼寝が最高でした💤 ふかふかのソファ、通り抜ける風、ゆったりと流れる時間。インド来て以来の幸福感を味わう事が出来ました🙏🙏 It was wonderful experience.We cooked 6 Indian dishes. ・Potato curry ・Mix veg curry ・Egg curry ・Carp curry ・Puri ・Kheer Everything was unique for us, so we all are excited to cook. And, of course, all dishes were very tasty. I can eat them everyday. This wonderful experience was perfectly depends on the kindness of the host, Kabita and her family.Thank you very much.
