Home cooking and dining experience with a local family in Goa

Home-chef Sandhya is a true Goan and you can gather interesting information from her about the local culture and cuisine of Goa. What you generally get served at the shacks and restaurants in Goa is delicious but it portrays only one side of Goa - the Portuguese inspired culture and cuisine. There is a lot to discover about the regional and authentic flavours of Goa which is possible when you get to spend time with a local. The experience begins with meeting Sandhya and her family in her beautiful home in Miramar, Panaji, Goa, establishing a conversation that flows into enjoying your time in the kitchen and then sitting down to enjoy a delicious mean, full of local flavours of Goa.

This is an opportunity to learn the tips and tricks of cooking Indian food and getting to enjoy authentic home made food with a local family over great conversations.

The entire experience at Sandhya's home will be for 2-4 hours.
