Manisha is the best. We came with 3 small kids and she thought us how to make samosa and cupcakes. The kids did almost everything. All the staff are so nice and welcoming.

What can I say - such a stunning half day spent with the wonderful Manisha. Not only is she passionate about cooking and natural ingredients, she is such a lovely person and we thoroughly enjoyed speaking with her.

This class is informative, educational and entertaining. Her recipes are easy to follow and so tasty!

Must do, take my word for it!

I signed up to a Creole cooking course.
It was great. Learning to cook mutton meatballs mutton chops and a semolina cake.
The course helped me figure out what I have been doing wrong in my Indian cooking. That was wonderful. One more cooking course signed up, for more South Indian cooking. It's great.

Great cooking class where we learnt how to cook traditional South Indian recipes in Lakshmi’s home. It was very authentic and if you love Idli and Dosa , this is a must do! We learnt so much from Lakshmi (not just about the cooking but also about Indian traditions and her life).

Course started late, what's new? Lasted almost 4 hrs, 7 in class and went to market first to buy ingredients. Then we all contributed to preparing two mains and a sweet. Vegetarian option if required, and we all had a good time. Only disappointment was we were promised an email with all the recipes we used, but to date, have heard nothing

Dear David. Thank you for your review and kind words. Sometimes the class gets delayed by a few minutes coz our overseas guests arrive one-by-one or take sometime to setttle their belongings. However, its our endeavour to start the class as early as possible everytime. As for the recipes, they were delayed as we faced an unprecedented internet outage for most part of a couple of days. I hope you have received your recipes now and will enjoy cooking your Indian meal for your family and friends. We look forward to hosting you once more if you visit Pondicherry again!

We had a great time and learned lots during our cooking class with Manisha. She offered lots of recipes to choose from, and explained a lot about the different ingredients at the market. She's very knowledgeable, funny and friendly - and a great chef!

Highly recommend this activity if you have an interest in food.

Tiffin with Laxmi from the Sita Cultural Center is an awesome experience! Laxmi is a bubbly, enthusiastic host who is also a fabulous cook! You learn how to make chutney, idli, dosa and iddi appam in a local home, Laxmi’s home. You get to meet her husband and daughters. The class/session went on for almost 3.5 hours and we felt like we were out of town friends of Laxmi and she had invited us over for a cooking demo and dinner. Highly recommend this experience! Rs 900 per person. It also includes an auto rickshaw ride and shopping for groceries. Btw, she has installed a water filter so the water is safe for drinking.

We had a really memorable evening learning to cook south Indian staples at Lakshmi's home, organised via Sita. She was a fantastic teacher and warmly welcomed us into her home. Highly recommend.
