We had a cookery lesson as part of a small group tour with Explore. Sheril and his wife were so much fun and we had a terrific evening. Thank you Sheril for inviting us into your home and letting us cause chaos, it was such...an amazing experience.More

We spent a fantastic evening learning techniques and watching how to make authentic home cooked food. Preparing the food and then eating it was such fun and the family were warm and friendly.

Hosted by the charismatic Sheril, he has featured on many programmes including the BBC and New York Times so you’re in safe hands for his cooking class and dinner. You visit his house a few minutes outside of central Thekkady and participate in the dinner...preparation. Chopping, grating, frying and parota flinging are all part of the relaxed experience, and don’t forget the ‘Mix-ing….mix-ing!’ mantra readily employed. All the food is fresh & delicious. Poppadoms, fried chips, pineapple curry, spicy chicken curry, fried fish, green beans, okra and fresh parota to soak it all up over a few beers. Such a great chance to enjoy the hospitality and knowledge of locals and help to support them. So escape the hotel enclaves, and venture out for the real taste of Kerala . Great fun. Great value. Highly recommended.More

I went with a group of 6 who were on an organised tour of Kerala, we didn’t know what to expect from a cookery ‘class’ but we all had a fabulous time with a lot of laughing and even more delicious food, my gluten free...needs were catered for and there was plenty of food to go around which was one of the best meals we had all holiday. The whole experience of cooking in an authentic home with local (very nice) people added to the atmosphere and gave us a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable evening. We were all very happy to be given a list of ingredients and instructions to take away with us so we can cook it again. I definitely recommend this and would happily go againMore

Fun and entertaining cooking class and dinner from Sheril and Asha. We did two cooking classes in India, one in the North and this one in the South - both good, but this a little better. Very hands on. Made 6 dishes plus Kerala parotta,...vegetarians well catered for. Highly recommend this experience.More

We were a group of 14 that went for the hands on Indian cookery class and meal. It was a really fun evening with everybody getting involved in the preparation and the cooking. Not sure why they call it Bar-B-Que. Masses to eat, some vegetarian...dishes but more choice for omnivores. I'm sure this could be adjusted on request.More

On arrival we were set to chopping vegetables which helped us get to know the other guests. Everyone had a go at shredding coconut and then into the kitchen to cook. This husband and wife team have a great rapport and he is very much...the entertainer. The food was delicious and we all had a hand in making it. Recipes were adjusted for vegetarians and a print out of recipes was provided. The kerallan parata were gorgeous and the kingfisher rounded things off.More

We had a great time at bar-b-que with Sheril the chef. Great cooking lesson that resulted in a delicious feast that we ate together. Sheril is a natural teacher and comedian, a lovely evening with lots of laughs❤️
