    Sundari and her husband welcomed my dad and me to her beautiful home with open arms. She is an excellent cook and a fantastic storyteller and I'll forever cherish the recipes and little anecdotes of advice she passed on to me! So, so grateful to have met them both!

    Such fun! What a lovely experience - meeting Jyashree & Ravi was a highlight of our trip. From our first contact, responses were prompt and information was clear. We were met at our hotel by Ravi, Jyashrees lovely husband and went to a local cafe where we had the best coffee and traditional Idly for breakfast. A walk around the vegetable market showed us a number of vegetables we had never seen! Then to their home where we received a warm welcome. We cooked a number of dishes under Jyashrees guidance and then had an absolute feast! We look forward to recreating them when home. The whole event felt like meeting old friends and if this entertaining couple is ever our way, we look forward to welcoming them to our home…. on the basis that Jyashree supervises the cooking!! Thank you SO much. Xx

    If you want to have fun and be in good hands in the kitchen, Jyashree Rajagopal is the best choice. Her experience and expertise is impeccable and her knowledge and confidence in Indian food is amazing. She pays attention to your favourites and can very clearly explain the specifics of each local dish. Her family and home are heartwarming, as is the environment in which she lives. She teaches and encourages excellently while you cook. In addition to the food prepared together, she also serves a full set of lunch with a variety of vegan dishes. Moreover, she and her husband are excellent conversation partners.

    Making korma, dosa and coconut rice are learned and practiced with a playful ease.

    Amazing tour with Hareesh. Felt like a local with his help including the jammed city streets. Help us shop for a wide range of items including sandals, baby gifts, and silks. These are places that would be a bit intimidating to go on your own.

    My friend and I wanted to do something different than usual during our stay in Chennai and we decided to have an experience that would make us learn more about the tradition of the place while tasting amazing food, the perfect combo! Kamala welcomed in her lovely house and showed us all the process, and ingredients and recipes for some indian dishes and then we had our dinner in a very authentic way: eating with our hand on a banana leave! thank you so much Kamala for your time and for sharing your incredible knowledge with us in such a warm and lovely way, you made our indian experience very special!

    Booked last minute but Jyashree was so accommodating. The hospitality shown by herself and very clever family was lovely. Picked up from hotel by Ravi, her husband, and taken to temple and local market. Then coffee and conversation at her house before demonstrating a Madras curry with coconut rice, dosa and a tomato and onion chutney. You must also try her Inji Puli, a very gingery and spicy chutney. I took some home (wrap it up well or it will leak from the jar) and devoured it in 2 days. Then came a lunch made with all different kinds of Indian vegetarian dishes. More food than you could ever wish to eat. All in all a lovely day out meeting her and her family. A very personal experience. Nanri

    If you have even the slightest curiosity about Ayurvedic cuisine, you will want to book a meal with Pratibha. You will taste a variety of dishes prepared consciously using Ayurvedic principles to be delicious, balanced and full of nourishment and vitality. I felt very welcome and at home. We discussed and shared many things about living fully. I also had the privilege of meeting 4 generations of Pratibha’s family. I was well fed on many levels!

    Gayathri and Ram were wonderful hosts! Not only did we prepare and share a delicious meal, but we learned SO much about Brahmin culture. Afterwards, Ram drove us to buy the necessary ingredients, spices and equipment to prepare the same dishes in Japan where we live. We were deeply moved by their genuine generosity and friendliness. It was a lovely meal with a lovely couple. Thank you!
