Thoroughly enjoyed the cooking lesson with Shivani. She is very organised,patient and instructions are clear. We discovered an array of spices and produced a range of vegetarian dishes, which we got to eat at the end of the class. I came away with a desire to experiment with these new techniques along with the recipe handout. Shivani and her husband... More

She is very prepared and has all the recipes and food ready to answer or go at the pace you need. After cooking, I sat down for a nice dinner with them and their houseguests. Next time I'm in...

We came away with some spice, print outs of the recipes (to try back home) and very full tummies! We tasted each dish as we went along and then sat down to a banquet of what... More

You know when you meet someone who reminds you how amazing this world is? That is how I feel about Ashok and Shivani. Meeting these two has been absolutely the highlight of my time in Pushkar. They are the most kind, caring, driven, interesting and compassionate pair with big hearts and open arms. I took Shivani's cooking class in their... More

We love Indian food and also had some experience preparing a few dishes at home. Still we wanted to learn more from a local expert - and this is what we found here!! In advance to the cooking class you will plan what you would like to learn to cook (and like to eat -- all vegetarian). So every class... More

After 4 weeks in India with so much that we saw and happened, the Pushkar Cooking Art visit is still one of the most outstanding experiences.
