The words Chettinad and food together create magic. The lives of Chettiar womenfolk revolves around the home and kitchen. Food is discussed in abundance, menus are meticulously planned and there is a constant pursuit for perfection. Food is almost like a prayer, playing a major role in everyday life and more so on an auspicious occasion. Most people hear "Chettinad" and see "Red Hot Spice". There's much more to Chettinad food than spice and you've got to sample the authentic spread to be able to brand it.

Home chef Vishalla and her family invite you to her home in Chennai to learn some simple Chettinad dishes and enjoy a meal with them. After a refreshing glass of Morru (flavoured buttermilk) head over to the kitchen with Vishalla and participate in making vegetable poriyal (sauted seasonal vegetables) and learn the art of making a perfect crispy vadai (lentil fritters). Make your way to the dining area after this wonderful class to relish a homecooked meal prepared by Vishalla.

The entire meal experience will last for 3-4 hours.

Please note - This is not a professional cooking class but rather an opportunity to cook and dine with a local home-chef. The experience will be as much about the stories around the food and local culture, as it would be about the meal itself.
