we cooked a really great meal. We have never cooked an Indian meal so deliciously or received it in a restaurant. Very nice experience. We learned a lot. we were very happy to spend a good time with such friendly people. We are happy to try other dishes. 😊

Monty and Harshita are such a wonderful couple, so kind and generous. This is my second class with them, and I always love learning from them — they are talented chefs and great teachers, so detailed and patient in their teaching. I couldn’t believe my curry came out tasting the same (actually better! ) than what I’ve had at Indian restaurants in the United States. I am grateful they accommodated my requests to make specific dishes. They know how to make everything! Don’t hesitate to sign up this experience, if you want to learn from authentic Indian chefs.

Another great class with Monty! Relaxed, friendly pace and class full of information. I'm learning so much and feeling more confident to cook with Indian spices. Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn Indian cooking or cook a nice meal along with great company.

Wasn’t sure what to expect as this was my first AirBnB experience. I was pleased to find out how great this is and Monty was super friendly, supportive and experienced. His tales of his local attractions were wonderful and I wish him and his family much success! Will definitely book another class with him.

100% hands down the best cooking online experience I've had, and I've done several. Monty is an amazing storyteller, and his experience as a former tour guide as well as his world-class culinary education and overall experience shows. He is a man of great knowledge, and this specific Indian cooking class was the first that really taught me how to properly layer flavors, something I've always heard of but haven't had the opportunity to experience until now. Any questions I had about India - the differences in curries, the origin of dishes, the best way to travel throughout the country - he knew and more. He doesn't rattle facts off the top of his head, rather he weaves it into a very descriptive story, with excellent timing. While your onions simmer, Monty recounts personal stories or provides historical context to dishes and spices with excellent timing. My partner was so enthralled he eavesdropped in on the conversations and skipped his late breakfast so he can enjoy the korma and pulao I made! What was especially unique for us is that I picked this course because one of our favorite dishes is chicken korma, and we learned how to make this very unique Northern Indian chicken korma (we're used to the south version). This was fascinating in itself, and I'm even more excited to have learned a version of a dish we love so much. They are bookmarked for future courses! Best wishes to Monty and Harshita, I hope to come across your path in our travels soon!

This was a great class! Monty provided the perfect amount of detail all along the way. He is a wonderful storyteller and I enjoyed the moments we were waiting for things to cook as well! Most importantly, the food was amazing! I am a huge Indian food fan and have struggled to make my favorite dishes in the past. I never thought I could make something so good!! I highly recommend this experience
