“Excellent evening”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

Shashi is the most congenial of hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed the informative evening. The food we prepared was great and the aim is to take this home with us with the recipe booklet. Come hungry and prepare to be enthralled by shashi for 5 hrs.

Reviewed 21 March 2012

Last evening we completed a 7 week visit to India with a well recommended cooking class in Udaipur. Shashi was everythong we hoped for in learning some basic exremely tasty indian food in her humble home.We were welcomed with open arms and embarked on a fabulous experience we will not forget. Thankyou for leaving us with warm fuzzies and new skills from this intetesting country

“wonderful experience, great recipes and an amazing lady”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

I attended this class a few months ago and after cooking some of the recipes Shashi showed me I feel compelled to write this review. This was the best evening in my 5 months traveling. Shashi is an inspiration and I have great respect for her. The class itself was so much fun and really interesting. Lots of giggles and mountains of food. What wonderful memories I have. If you have the chance to go you'd be daft not to.

“Shashi's Intimate Cooking class”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

Out of the cooking classes we took during our trip (3 total), Shashi's was definitely the best. We liked how she keeps the class to a minimum of 3-4 people per class and how we really get our hands dirty and help out with the cooking. There's so much good food at the end that we really were impressed at how easy she made it and how good it was.

One thing that really made the whole cooking class more intimate was how she told us her story (not sure if she tells every class) which was very touching. She has such an amazing story to tell the whole thing makes you really get a better understanding of life in India.

“Delicious food, good experience”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Shashi is great. I don't want to ruin it, but she has a great story of "rags to riches." She is very friendly, has learned english extremely well and very fast. She knows the name of vegetables in many languages.

Do understand you are in her home. You eat in her living room/bedroom. The kitchen gets quite tight with six people. She assigns tasks and it's fun. There are mice running around, but I held to the thought that everything gets cooked, and no one in our group had any stomach issues afterwards (we've kept in touch). You can tell Shashi is an intelligent person. You will enjoy this experience. Go as hungry as possible, and do NOT fill up on the amazing pakora!!
