Nepal Cooking School
Nepal Cooking School is located at the heart of Thamel, with the objective of teaching not only to prepare Nepali cuisine but giving insight to people all around the world about the nature of Nepali food. The cooking school also requires learners to pick the ingredients themselves from the market, with staff assistance, which helps them to understand the dishes better. Here, visitors are guided by chefs in cooking a 4-course Nepali staple meal which includes Dal-Bhat, Chatamari, Momos and much more. The most special thing about this institution is that the profit earned from here goes towards funding social programs-educating children and providing skill-based training to women- for the organization, Journey Nepal. On TripAdvisor, a tourist by the username Timothy B says, “Absolutely loved my experience and will certainly be cooking these dishes when back in Australia! Thank you Nepal cooking school!
2 Sisters Nepal
More and more youths are starting to get engaged in the field of tourism in Nepal. 2 Sisters Nepal is a cooking school run by two young female entrepreneurs in the heritage-rich Patan, providing a hygienic, well-organized and memorable experience to its learners. The specialty of this place is that its recipes and preparation processes are based on traditional Nepali cuisine as well as a touch of modern fusion.
On TripAdvisor, an American tourist writes, “I’m so glad as an American woman traveling solo that I did this! The course is fun and informative. The willingness to accommodate and teach is easy but traditional and authentic! The area is beautiful...a bit calmer than much of the city and it’s picturesque and pleasant within the confines. The food I made, the people I met and the team... Sushma and Maya and a few other wonderful people made for a hi-lite of my trip! I highly recommend!”
Along with credited cooking schools, there are a lot of local cooking classes that are in operation, with the classes being taught by members of the family and in their homes itself. In any case, there are a large number of options for tourists visiting Nepal to learn about its cuisine.
