Rita was so knowledgeable and lovely. The food we made was incredible! Genuinely couldn't have had a better day.
We loved our class with Rita. Started with a delicious breakfast and market tour. Back in the kitchen, Rita ran us through the spices many of which we had seen at the market. We cooked a crazy amount of food (a special vegetarian menu of samosas, Dahl, alloo gobi, paneer butter masala, flat bread and rice pudding). We were assisted not just by Rita but by her team of helpers who were great to learn from. Afterwards we had a delicious feast. There were tons of leftovers which Rita bundled up and sent us home with. Overall highly recommendable. We also got copies of the recipes and an apron to keep.
My 15 year old daughter and I had a wonderful time at Rita's Indian breads workshop. This was the only activity my daughter would agree to do in Goa as she just wanted to relax on this vacation. It was well worth it. My daughter knows how to make tortillas very well and wanted to learn how to make Indian breads. We were the only two in the workshop and it was quite intense -- lots of hands on experience and opportunity to test your skills. We truly enjoyed it. We can't wait to practice our skills this Sunday.
My Wife and I went for the 3 hrs class - cooking a total of 5 dishes! Everything was sooo tasty and Rita was an awesome teacher! Would highly recommend to anyone who has a passion for cooking.
We booked this class to do something different. We love the Indian food and spices. Rita was so knowledgeable and lovely. The food we made was incredible! We stayed in Goa only for one day during a cruise and Rita organised everything from the pickup at the port and return just in time. It was a highlight of the cruise and we hope we can buy all the spices at home to cook all the delicious recipes we got from her.
Rita and her staff were very helpful, fell in love with the breakfast (masala dosa) and the chai masala. The market experience was good as well, buy all your spices there so you get your guide to help you choose the best quality stuff.
We had an amazing day with Rita and her team learning how to produce authentic Indian food. I will look forward to making your gorgeous recipes back home. Thanks Rita we had a great day.
We spent three amazing days with Rita and staff. We had an extremely complete hands on introduction to Goan and Indian cuisine, learning about local products, spices and cooking techniques. And above all, Rita is an inspiring woman and amazing host.
Rita and her team know what they are doing. A warm, bright and friendly place. We learnt a lot and Rita tailored it to us ( one vego, one carnivore )! Very clean, tidy and a pleasure to be there. Thoroughly enjoyable.
My husband and I visited Rita’s beautiful place last week. The market tour was fantastic and learning how to make Goan and Indian food was so much fun! I now know how to make my own samosa which I am so proud of!
