Day 1


Welcome to tropical Goa and your home for the week! Upon arrival you’ll be met at Goa airport and transferred to your hotel. Spend the rest of the day at leisure.
Overnight: Goa

Day 2

Your first cooking class

This morning you'll be picked up from your hotel and driven to a modern day apartment overlooking the verdant fields of Caranzalem. Here you will learn to cook Indian cuisine in our chef Judy's Goan home. Following an introduction to Indian food, we commence our first cooking class. Afterwards we devour the fruits of our labour for lunch. Finishing early this afternoon, the rest of the day is free. Perhaps relax by the beach.
Overnight: Goa  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3

Head to the market

Its an early start this morning with a visit to the colourful local market with your chef. Check out the fresh 'just picked' produce, chat with spice merchants, buy some Indian cooking utensils and take in the hustle and bustle of this popular spot. We then enjoy a traditional breakfast at a South India cafe in Goa’s capital, Panjim.
Overnight: Goa  |  Breakfast

Day 4

South Indian Cuisine

This morning you'll enjoy an introduction to the cuisine of South India, including local Goan food. Not unnaturally, after some 450 years of colonisation, Goan cooking has absorbed strong Portuguese influences. Hanging up your apron, it will then be time to road test the tasty result of this morning class.

Day 5

Tea and Spices

Today we enjoy a half day excursion to the local spice garden and plantation.
Overnight: Goa  |  Breakfast

Your last class

Our third and final cooking session is a treat, where your chef will accommodate a selection of special requests from the class, with pointers on dishes you may have always wanted to know how to prepare - perhaps a favourite local snack that you've come across during your stay in Goa? The afternoon is free for you to further explore Goa or simply take things easy.
Overnight: Goa  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Via emails my expert consultant Sharon managed to book this tour and send me all the nessesary paperwork seemlessly with no stress or pressure.

On arriving in Goa, Judy personally phoned my hotel room to welcome me and inform me of the travel arangments to and from the cooking school for the next day.

The cooking school in Goa was informative, relaxed and memorable.

Thanks On The Go, I will recommend this tour and your company.
