Cooking and Dinner with local Family in Nepal – Itinerary

Travel to host’s home. Visit nearby market. Cooking experience followed by dinner.

At the scheduled start time, your host family will pick you up from your hotel in the afternoon and accompany you to a local market. You will have a proper insight into the local market “Bazar” and the different ingredients and spices that make our food so unique and tasty. You will also get to know how busy the streets and small vendors over the markets are and how people bargain to get the best deal for things.

Afterwards, your host will take you to their home where you will be treated as one of their own. You will be introduced to all the family members of the house. In this homely environment, you will learn about the ethics, rules, and regulations of the house: From greetings to serving food as thanking God, taking off your shoes outside the house, eating with hand, and many more. The family will tell you about the traditions and recipes of Nepali cookery, which are mostly used across the country. Get stuck in the kitchen and interact with them: From chopping the ingredients to cooking Nepali Dal, Bhat, and Tarkari in true local style, you will enjoy every moment while cooking with the local family in Nepal.

This experience is more like sharing a culture where you will talk about your cuisine and your host will share their cuisine. In Nepal, we eat almost 4 or 5 times a day starting with breakfast, brunch, lunch, light snacks in the evening, and finally dinner. You will probably get insight into what we usually eat and our food culture.

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 flavour. Once all the dishes are ready to eat, you will sit down at the family dining table and enjoy the taste of your hard work. While going back to the hotel, the host will give you a Lakhamari (sweet traditional snack) or a souvenir. After this exciting adventure, you will be driven back to your hotel.
