Package Summary: 

Local cuisine is one of the gateways to a culture, probably the most important one. It is said that if you look forward to knowing a culture, taste the food platter because that would be providing you with the most authentic knowledge of a culture. Our Full Day Cooking, Overnight Stay and Sunrise Cruise is our humble attempt to acquaint you with the immersive experiences of Kerala culture. 

We will be welcoming you with a refreshing traditional Kerala welcome drink and then we will move to the dining table for welcome lunch. Our welcome lunch showcases the flavors and spices that define our cuisine. After savoring the meal, take a moment to relax and enjoy a cup of tea before embarking on a visit to the local market. From the market we will be collecting the ingredients that we would require for cooking and then start our cooking session. 

After the cooking session, we will share our delicious dinner together over stories about the food, flavor and history of the particular dishes. After dinner, you can retire to your room for a good night’s sleep. Next morning, if you can wake up early, we can have the sunrise cruise where you can soak yourself in the hidden beauty of the Kumarakom Backwaters.
