A friend recommend Nimi's cooking class and it was a wonderful experience and money well spent!! There is no strict time frame on the class, you start at 2pm and it ends when it ends - which is lovely as you don't feel rushed. Nimi is an amazing teacher who will give you helpful tips as you go along and... More

Nimi's Lip Smacking Class was exceptional and definitely worth the trip to Munnar. She is an amazing cook who is kind, passionate and inspiring. The fish curry we cooked was outstanding and so tasty. I am so excited that Nimi has produced a cookbook that we received as part of the cooking class as I can't wait to cook some... More

Great introduction in Keralan food. Nimi is friendly and an excellent cook! She shared many of her cooking secrets and I especially enjoyed her tips on how to use, store and recognise the best quality of the spices.

Nimi was so patient and knowledgable about Keralan cooking, it was a pleasure to learn from her. The dishes were all fantastic (especially Beetroot Curry and Banana Doughnuts), I can't wait to use my cook book to make them at home.

What a privilege it is to visit Nimi in her picturesque home by the river. Cooking food from her wonderful recipe book in her quaint kitchen overlooking the river. Nimi's passion and energy for what she does is infectious! She has no time limit for her classes and is very generous with her time. The global success she has achieved,... More

Nimi welcomes you at her place, in her very nice outdoor kitchen :-) After introducing dozens of keralease spices, she shows the recipes you are going to cook. The cooking is very interactive and Nimi gives A LOT of tips, useful when you are back at home. You then eat what you've cooked and that's amazing. Probably the beat food... More

Nimi is such an inspiring woman and the 5.5 hours I spent at her home seemed far shorter. Nimi welcomes you into her Munnar home and her outside kitchen, which overlooks the river. There were two of us in the class and Nimi started by explaining the various spices she uses in her Kerala cooking. We helped her chop up... More
