This innovative and responsible company runs a half-day 'Cook Like a Local' Nepali cookery course that involves a trip to a local market to get ingredients for momos, spinach curry, alu gobi (potato and cauliflower), tomato pickle and alu paratha (fried chapatti with potato). Pay what you think the experience is worth and then eat your homework.

The company also runs great day tours, including a Newari culture and snack tour in Kirtipur, a weave your own souvenir trip in Bungamati, a local market walk to Asan Tole, and a 'lunch with nuns' hike to Nagi Gompa in Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park.
