One of the most authentic experiences possible in Nepal is to cook and eat with a local family. With the help of your native host, you’ll discover the unique flavors of local cooking whist learning about traditional lifestyles and customs. As a part of this experience you will visit a local market, choose exotic ingredients and learn to cook Nepali dishes. New skills to remember and practice once you return home.
Transfer to host’s home. Visit nearby market. Cooking experience followed by dinner.
The host family will pick you up from your hotel in the afternoon and accompany you to a local market; teaching you about the different ingredients and spices that make the food taste so unique. As well as learning how to prepare Nepali dishes you will also have a wonderful experience in their home, witnessing daily life and interacting with a local family. Dal bhat is a traditional meal and the recipe is easy: cut the vegetables and mix them with an assortment of spices (turmeric, cumin, ginger, garlic) so that it’s full of flavor. You will be driven back to your hotel in the evening after dinner.
It was an amazing experience meeting this lovely nepali family in their own home for homemade food! The hosts were super friendly and we spent a great evening together. Best Dal Bhat in town!
