"Delighted in Kerala - cooking, curries and culture"
I was delighted with the combination of experiences provided by Anoop and Smitha: expert, hands-on tuition in cooking Indian cuisine; an exciting and tailored itinerary of locations, sights and activities to explore the culture, history and geography of Kerala; and the warmth of welcome and care throughout where no effort was spared in understanding and meeting my needs.
I really enjoyed learning first hand the finer points of Keralan and north Indian cooking and improving my skills and techniques. It was fun cooking outside in the warm evenings overlooking a water meadow or a backwater lagoon with the sounds of the night and the enticing scents of spices sizzling in the pan.
A cultural highlight was witnessing a festival celebration of a saint’s day in a local catholic church – fireworks and drummers, horn players and costumes, effigies and processions. The whole community turned out to take part and make it a very special event.
Anoop and Smitha were generous in the personal time they devoted to driving me to and escorting me around varied locations from a hill station retreat in a cardamom plantation to a heritage resort set between the sea and a backwater lagoon, 24 hours on a traditional house boat to visiting the original grave site of Vasco da Gama in Fort Cochin, to clothes shopping for my granddaughters. They could not have been more knowledgeable, engaging or attentive.

Wow, where to start? Kerala has always been a dream of mine to visit. I was looking for an adventure which combined my passion for food and photography.
Anoop and Samita are the perfect hosts. They created an experience which went beyond my expectations.
Anoop, Samita and their team arranged everything from visiting different resorts and hotels to all the excursions. Their wealth of knowledge of Kerala was overwhelming!
They arranged for me to visit the tea plantation of the hill station of Munnar Tea plantations. A tour of the backwaters on a houseboat in Alleppey. A riverboat trip down the Periyar River and the Periyar Tiger Reserve and Elephant Rescue Centre. We even managed a visit to Fort Kochi. Anoop and Samita were very accommodating and adjusted the itinerary for me to visit numerous temple and church festivals, local food markets, Kerala’s fishing harbours, street food vendors and a traditional Ayurvedic massage.
The highlight for me was an opportunity to visit an Indian martial art training ground to see the Kalaripayattu artform in action.
The other aspect of my adventure was learning how to create local dishes.
Anoop is a Culinary Master. He and his team went to great lengths to develop a cooking menu based on a vegetarian diet. The cooking demonstrations where excellent. I loved the way I was able to take part in the cooking classes. On other occasions, we went to local restaurants. Samita and Anoop went to great lengths to make sure I had a great vacation
