Good food & great conversations with Biswas in a traditional Bengali home.
A. BiswasNamaste. I’m Biswas and I like to interact with people and learn about their food, culture and arts. I think of myself as a travel-architect, constructing experiences based on people’s foundation and interests. No introduction of mine is complete without sharing my knowledge and passion for food. I believe the best way to connect with anyone is over food. Join me for a traditional meal as I introduce you to culinary favourites and the best Bengali dishes of Kolkata.DetailsThis 4-hour activity offers a wholesome Bengali experience, where you will dine at a traditional Bengali home, taste some authentic food and interact with locals to learn more about their cultures, traditions and cuisine. Watch them prepare aromatic dishes, taking you through their unique recipes, tips and quirky experiences as Kolkata residents. Meet your host at his traditional Bengali set-up and begin your experience with a brief tour of the house. Relish a traditional Bengali meal with dishes like pulao, dal, beguni (crispy eggplant fritters), alu jhinge posto (potatoes, zucchini, and yellow pumpkin), chingri malai curry (coconut cream prawns), and bhetki paturi (mustard paste coated sea bass). For dessert, you might try payesh (sweetened rice pudding) and other sweets. End this gastronomic experience with a cultural takeaway. Note: • A Viator/TripAdvisor booking confirmation sent at the time of confirmation is not the official ticket. • You will receive a separate redemption voucher/code.
