    What to Expect
    Travel by private vehicle with your local guide to the home of a typical Indian family in Delhi. Say hello as they welcome you into their home, where dinner will be prepared. Listen in as your guide share stories and insight about traditional Indian life during this New Delhi cultural experience. Experience the flavor of a homemade Indian meal, which is typically vegetarian—and gain a literal taste of the bold spices and aromatic herbs that make this cuisine so unique. As your host cooks, learn about the foods and traditional ingredients used to make everyday meals.

    In addition to sharing an incredible meal, you will experience the warmth of Indian hospitality. With a group cap of 12 participants, dinner is sure to be an intimate experience. 

    After a filling meal, explore the electric city of Delhi on your own, or travel with your guide back to your hotel.

    Going to Eshita's home, meeting her parents and brother, was very special indeed. They made me so welcome. I watched and helped (a little!) as they cooked for me including the best masala chai I've had, pakora, soya matter paneer, jeera aloo, and a completely different way of
