About your host

I lived away from Bengal for about 8 years, working, doing an MBA and travelling to Africa for a bit. All the while I was away, I would miss the Bengali food I was used to at home, so distinct and so different from what is served as Bengali fare at restaurants. And in turn, spend hours in the kitchen trying to replicate my grandmother and mother's recipes. So now that I have moved back to my city…

What we’ll do

Once you arrive, you'll be greeted with a welcome drink by me and Tuki, a lovely single mother from a neighbouring village and quite the genius at Bengali cuisine. We will then move on to the meal itself, where I will explain each item and how to eat it to you. I can also brief you on its recipe and how it's cooked if you're interested. Over the course of the meal, I am happy to answer questions…

What else you should know

We have a more or less set menu but we do experiment ever so often with Bengali cuisine, which is typically non-vegetarian. If you have any dietary restrictions, let us know during the time of booking and we will accommodate your request.

What I’ll provide

Lunch and Dessert
A welcome drink, lunch and dessert will be served. The conversations, of course, are free.

Where you'll be

I will be hosting you at my home. If the weather is nice, I will set it up in my little back garden for you.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 5 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Guests, come with an appetite! :D

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
