This is the perfect culinary experience for small groups or families who want the unique opportunity to meet a local Coimbatore family and enjoy a meal in their home. Your local host, Jaswant, loves teaching visitors about his South Indian culture and heritage. Begin with a tour of the local market before returning home to watch a cooking demonstration of a few local South Indian dishes. Once the meal is prepared you will sit together and enjoy flavorful, home-cooked dishes over conversation with your host.
Jaswant, his wife, and his two daughters love to entertain guests and make them feel at home in India. Join them at their villa in Coimbatore and enjoy their beautiful garden. Jaswant loves the theater, live music and literary events. He runs an organization called The Cats and conducts musical shows, supper theater,  and literary events in Coimbatore. He loves acting, singing and of course, cooking! His daughters excel at western-style dancing and they conduct classes locally.Your culinary experience begins with a visit to the local fish and vegetable market selling fresh fish and produce. When you return home Jaswant will demonstrate how to prepare 2-3 South Indian dishes in his kitchen. You'll enjoy these freshly made dishes along with  along with other prepared foods that may have been prepared in advance, all served with rice and Indian breads.Jaswant specializes in meat vindaloos and kurmas that are enjoyed with Kerala-style breads, such as appam or puttu.
