This was one of the best afternoons spent in Nepal during a eight weeks stay.
Bir was lovely cook and added to the enjoyment of the cookery course. The cooking was done in their home using ingredients from the family garden. Step by step instructions on how to prepare and cook simple but delicious. I'll be taking home some great recipes and how to cook them together with fond memories of a great experience.

We just got back from a wonderful day with Shree and his lovely family learning how to make the most delicious food, and stuffing our bellies with it 'til bursting point.

We were met promptly by Bir at the arranged time in the morning and transported by car to his house just 10 Minute from Thamel.

The menu was explained to us over a cup of (also delicious) local tea and we got stuck in almost straight away. Dishes included momos, pickle and dal bhat. We had a break at midday to stretch our legs, take in some of the amazing views, and let our stomachs make some room for the afternoon delights.

This day was not only a great chance to learn how to make (and eat) the most delicious food we've had during our stay in Kathmandu, but a fantastic opportunity to find out about how a 'typical' Nepali family lives.

We, three girls from different countries met on a Nepal trek. After the trip, we had 1 full day free time so didn't know what to do as we had already seen the sights of Kathmandu. We came across Trekking Team Group and met shree. Knowing our thoughts he instantly offered us cooking class where we can cook momo. We agreed on his suggestion and went with Bir ( one of his guide) to the market to buy all the ingredients. It was fun to buy with Nepali farmer and even learned to bargain. After this we took a taxi and went shree's house.

We cut vegetable and made ready to make Momo. The first few momo was so funny that we laughed to ourselves but shree's wife encouraged us to make it even better and finally we made quite ok.
We used same momo for our lunch and we could eat as much as we can. It was so delicious better than we had on our trek.We had lots of fun, laugh and experience which we will never forget.

Thanks shree for a wonderful day! We will recommend anyone to take this course if they have day off.

Additional Information

This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.


IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US. This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.
