    What to Expect
    Your day begins with a pickup from either your hotel in Kathmandu Valley or the designated departure point at 7am. Drive for about 25 minutes to Kritipur, to a local family home where the cooking class will be held. Visit the local market to buy ingredients and our organic farm to pick seasonal vegetables that you will be using for your class. Enjoy morning tea or coffee while we prepare for the cooking class.

    You will learn how to cook typical Nepali food, such as Dal Bhat, which can be prepared vegetarian or non-vegetarian, Rice Pudding, Momo and Sel Roti (celebration bread optional), along with flavorful recipes to share with friends back home.

    At the end of the lesson, enjoy your creation with new-found friends, sitting on the terrace while sipping on local wines. The class will finish at approximately 12pm. You will be dropped off back to your pickup location.
