Take a Kathmandu cooking class with heart on a tour that takes you into the office of a local social enterprise helping marginalised women.

The class will be run at the Seven Women headquarters in Kathmandu, where you will meet some of the women of Seven Women and hear the stories of how this social enterprise has made such a massive difference in Nepal through its literacy classes, skills training, and income generation programs. You’ll learn how Seven Women began and has grown from seven women operating out of a tin shed to now assisting more than 1,000 women.

First up, you’ll be taken on a tour through our local greenhouse, where you’ll learn about Nepalese vegetables and other seasonal produce, and the practice of greenhouse farming.

Once you have a grasp on the local ingredients, you’ll learn some delicious Nepalese recipes, all of which will be explained by local women who have passed them along through the generations. You will be guided through the recipe preparation and local methods while you learn to cook some of Nepal’s most traditional and tasty dishes.

After the meal is made, we’ll all sit down to dine together.
