From shopping for fresh produce and spices to learning to make Nepali tea and then five Nepali dishes, this half-day course is a fun and sociable way to learn some cooking skills. Come hungry as you get to eat the fruit (or rather chicken momos) of your labours. Classes start at 9.30am and 1.30pm. Book in advance by phone or online.

Classes aren't cheap but profits go to funding the school rebuilding and student sponsorship work of Journey Nepal (www.journey-nepal.org).
