Shashi is a very experienced teacher. She does not only speak perfect English but also knows all the spices and cooking techniques in several languages (and can tell you what you'll get at home and what ingredients you can substitute). She also teaches many variations to the dishes, so you feel like you can play around with the recipes at... More

Shashi, her son and daughter-in-law are amazing cooks and amazing teachers. We learned a lot and enjoyed one of the best meals of our 2 weeks in India in Shashi's kitchen. We were hesitant to commit to spending more than half of a day in a cooking class since we only had a few days in Udaipur, but her class... More

It was a great cookery class. I've attended a few others in India, also in Thailand and Laos. Whilst you don't physically get to make everything, it is fast paced and everyone gets to take a turn. If you know a fair amount about Indian food I would say you have to be patient, as the spiel is delivered with... More

Normally I'm a bit sceptical of the top rated things in Lonely Planet/ TripAdvisor, but Shashi's cooking class was really my highlight of the entire city. I love to cook and had always wanted to learn some Indian classics. Come hungry and leave yourself 5 hours for this course. Shashi herself is the nicest woman, she tells you about her... More

We were fortunate to experience the wonderful Shashi Cooking Classes. Shashi is a most beautiful human being and quite accomplished. She has won the hearts of many global people. Her class is highly organized and she has an ease in teaching. We loved this day with Shashi! We enjoyed a beautiful table of food, took away great recipes, and "true"... More

We looked at a number of classes across India and couldn't be happier this is the one we chose. 5 hours with Shashi flew by, we learned heaps not only about Indian cuisine but about her and her story, which is something to behold in itself. But this is about the cooking and it doesn't disappoint. The class is a... More

What a fantastic cooking course! One of the highlights of my trips so far. Shashi is a wonderful lady, so interesting to hear about her life and how this cooking course all began! I cannot wait to cook for my family. It was such amazing value for money; 900 rupees for nearly 5 hours!!!! Also when we got to eat... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed Shashi's cooking class. Her story is very inspiring but really all that matters from my point of view is that Shashi is an excellent cook and an excellent teacher. Her family joins in as well. We learned so much about Indian cooking and Indian life. We've had so many private tours and experiences here... More

Shashi runs these small cookery classes twice a day. They are small groups, and everyone gets a chance to take part in the cooking. Everything is well explained and there are recipes to take away. It takes 4-5 hours and we got to eat a huge and delicious feast at the end . Lovely family, and a great opportunity to... More

Great food, great stories. A must visit when you're in Udaipur - and the recipe sheets are definitely a great token to take back home.
