Stop At: Nepali Food Cooking, Balaju, Kathmandu 44600 Nepal

Traditional Nepal foods is an experience unto itself. Borrowing from Tibetan and Indian traditions, Nepal has developed its own delicious cuisine that delights the taste buds of visitors from around the world. Now you can actually learn how to do traditional Nepali cooking from a skilled Nepali chef!

Each half day session takes you from the market to the finished product. It begins with a trip to the market where you experience how to barter for fresh vegetables and spices. The traditional marketplace is a colorful event with its many sights and sounds. Smell the aromas as it tickles your nose. Watch your guide demonstrate bartering skills as every item’s price is negotiated. There is an amazing cacophony of sounds and smells that make up the fun of the marketplace.

From here, return to the kitchen where you will cook five courses of traditional Nepali and Newari dishes. The two cultures produce very distinct foods. While some of it has blended itself, there is enough distinction to proclaim the merits of each cooking tradition.

You can choose from meat dishes to vegetarian and vegan recipes. Your master chef will instruct you on the use of the various spices that are unique to this culture. In just four hours, the guarded secrets of successful Nepali cooking will be revealed to you. Only a master Nepali chef can bring any recipe to a delicious conclusion, and under their tutelage you will rise to flavorful distinction.

There are many Nepali local ingredients. Some are grown only in the High Himalayas while others are grown here in the Kathmandu Valley. Certain areas of Nepal produce certain types of crops, and your Master Nepali chef will show you how to select and properly use each ingredient in order to bring out the finest of flavors.

You will finish the course by feasting on sumptuous food that you have learned to cook. Now you can take this newfound knowledge home with you to amaze family and friends.

There are two four hour courses daily; each ending with either lunch or dinner. Included in the program are:

Duration: 4 hours
