Kahn is super knowledgeable and a great teacher. His class was really fun and made it easy to learn. He let us choose whatever we wanted to make, and offered a few suggestions himself. Super excited to recreate this dishes at home. One of my favorite experiences in India!!

We took a class with our two kids, 8 and 10, and we all enjoyed the session. Learned a lot in a relaxing way which finished with a tasty lunch in the beautiful garden.

Khan is an artist when it comes to cooking! And an excellent teacher too! The best thing is that he teaches you anything you want to learn, keralan dishes are his bests Without a doubt. You get to actually cook with him (you won't just sit scribbling notes), learn from his personal touch which he puts in every dish (not... More

The lovely laid back Mr Khan taught me some great Kerala dishes which I will definitely have a go at. The class is not expensive and takes at least a couple of hours. After you've done the class - you get to eat the food! Kerala cookery uses a lot of fresh coconut, I wonder if these dishes will taste... More
