Nim is an amazing cook and teacher. The exterior of her house belies the beauty within. Her kitchen is so well designed as is her cookery lesson. Prepare to enjoy and feast and learn a lot. A most memorable experience and a lovely book to remember it by. Thanks Nim

Had an absolutely amazing time learning from Nimi! Her cuisine is indeed lip smacking and I am now able to reproduce some of her delicious and healthy recipes for the ashram I'm working for. She has an sparkly personality and is a real source of inspiration. Continue shining bright and spreading joy and outstanding food with the world!

An amazing afternoon spent with Nimi has taught me so much about Keralan food. As someone with fairly limited cooking skills and no previous experience cooking Indian food, the class was not intimidating and the explanation extremely clear.
Nimi starts with an in depth explanation of spices and how they are used in keralan cooking, how things compares to north Indian cooking, tips on how to cook with the spices and suitable substitutes if you can find those spices back home.
After this we started preparing the dishes Nimi had chosen for us, she gave us all a chance to get involved with various tasks and made sure to explain each step and answering any questions. After a few hours we could finally enjoy the fruits of our labour, which were delicious!
Nimi is very knowledgable, patient, humble and brought good humour to the afternoon. She even encouraged us to email her with any questions whenever we liked.
Nimi is understandably only able to conduct classes for 2 or more people. As I was travelling on my own, I asked if there were any upcoming classes already confirmed that I could join. She kindly organised a class for me and another solo traveller who had enquired and I'm so glad it worked out, the experience was amazing.

It’s the third time over the last six years I have come back to learn more from Nimi. Nimi is amazing! She is professional, patient, very knowledgeable - an excellent communicator / teacher. All the rest of those on my course thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Nimi caters for all diets. The cookbook she gives us is in my opinion (I am a professional chef) a classic.
I highly recommend this experience, it is exceptional value for money. If you are within reach, do book a place on one of Nimi’s courses. You will be getting a very unique experience!

This was a revelation! Nimi is a young, internationally recognised cook and teacher and made us all feel at ease,. No matter what our level of experience. A fascinating guide regarding Indian spices was followed by three hours of cooking , then eating, the most delicious food. The kitchen backs on to a beautiful river setting and we had a great time. Well worth it!

What a brilliant afternoon it was.
There is a reason why Nimi is one of the most recognized chefs in southern India. She knows so much about the traditional Kerala cooking style and will share her knowledge in such a friendly and fun way with you.
You will cook and taste things you have never before and realize that Indian food is so much more than Chicken Tikka and Palak Paneer.
Definitely the most authentic cooking class we have ever done.

Thank you Nimi for having us at your home.

Nimi taught us all about the key ingredients in her gorgeous indoors/outdoors plant-filled kitchen before we made 5 different dishes with her. She was clear and patient and very funny - all the ingredients were sourced same day from a local market, we would go back again in a heartbeat! Learning about Nimi’s journey to where she is today was completely inspiring and we wish her all the best for the future!

We had a great afternoon with Nimi whilst we were staying in Munnar. She taught us about all the different spices and how best to cook them. We cooked 5 different dishes and Nimi made sure that we all got involved with the cooking process. At the end of the session, we sat down and got to taste everything that we cooked (all of which was absolute delicious!)

We did not eat until about 7pm so I would recommend having lunch beforehand. We slightly miscalculated the timings but Nimi very kindly provided us with some sambar so we did not get too hungry!

Our afternoon with Nimi was something I'll always remember. She spent hours with us in her home, preparing together a carefully selected menu of traditional Keralan dishes. The kitchen set up is just wonderful, she has created a really unique space. We are all vegetarians so we made two veggie curries, a veg stir fry, puttu and a yummy sweet snack. I learnt SO much about different spices and ingredients used in Keralan cooking and we have all left feeling inspired to keep it up at home. We took away one of her cookbooks, the back pages completely filled with notes on what we learnt. Nimi is an incredibly talented chef and entrepreneur - on top of the successes she has already had (there's an impressive list) she absolutely deserves for her talents to be recognized all over. I urge you to visit her classes if you can (book in advance because unsurprisingly, they are popular!). What a special person!!

Nimi is such an inspirational woman, achieving so much success with her cookery books and being recognised all around the world... yet she still finds the time to share her amazing culinary skills with visitors. I learnt so much about spices, Kerala dishes and techniques, it was one of the best things we did during our travels. We cooked 5 vegetarians dishes, all bursting with flavour. We then went straight to the spice shop to fill our bags with everything we needed to recreate them at home. Don’t miss this experience, and help support Nimi and her family!
