Какво ще правите

What does the Goan culture epitomize? The hearth. I am known as the ‘Culinary Queen of Goa’, and have delved into the influences (besides the others) that the Portuguese occupation (17th century) have left in local kitchens.
Come home to understand the 'nuances' and story telling behind the ingredients that go into these dishes through a demo and tastings. Understand the history behind the food as our grandmothers did. How did these curries and masalas reach the traditional Goan table? The participation and the one on one interaction will create a great experience and with recipes shared at the end to explore the stories evolved over centuries, the traditional grandmother recipes passed down through generations.
The Inspiration behind these Goan favorites of seafood and during monsoons...meat….the red, yellow, orange masalas will be a mouth drooling experience.
Other things to note
Some of the dishes includes a lot of coconut, chillies and toddy vinegar but we can discuss your preferences. Goan foood normally possesses a sweet sour savoury salty and spicy attribute. There are different fish preparations that will be served depending on availability but its not all about curries or masala.
So join us for an experience as done in the past...sail on this caravel with its own unique flow.

Sip on a glass of wine or juice as I recount all information on the stories of the past.
Our grandmother's had many stories to tell, which I will share.
Take home memories and our interation is yours to question...is it myth of fact. There will be a demo in a modernized kitchen. We sit out in the garden, otherwise indoors (depending on the weather) to eat together. Looking forward to meeting you. Enjoy our fabled Goan hospitality. Mog Assundi!

Odette and her stories of culinary history of Goa was captivating. She's a great storyteller. Her husband was amazing too and we had a gala time. The preparations were unique and special. I was blown away by the flavors of food served especially, the Fish Caldin. Odette is a culinary aficionado and has written several noteworthy books on Goan culinary arts. It was my privilege to meet her in person through this experience. Thank you for being such a great host!

Odette and Joe took us on a journey back in time to a Goa that was :) It was a wonderful learning experience and I highly recommend anyone visiting Goa to visit Odette and Joe’s beautiful home. They are so warm and knowledgeable, the food was delicious and I bought Odette’s book “The Culinary Heritage of Goa”. Absolutely brilliant. Everything I’ve always been curious about when it comes to Goan cuisine and it’s history is in the book. Thank you so much for such a memorable afternoon!

I had booked this experience for my parents' anniversary as they like bits of history and love discovering new recipes. So, this experience made complete sense in my head. We have visited Goa before many times and i always thought i have ha enough of this place to know. But , I was clearly wrong. The food you eat at the shacks, that's not Goa. Goa is jut not the beaches. It's the food too. And what Odette had cooked was glamorous in taste! Beginning with entering a beautiful house (which she has designed herself) , we sat in the garden. And then began the saga of Portugal History and how the districts of the place are named. Simultaneously her husband (Joe Uncle) brought in the champagne and we started with the appetizers. Mind you, she will test your palate for what you are eating. The couple also showed a little ballroom dance in the Portugal era (which was so cute to watch!) in their garden. Odette also made sure we cooked one Curry ourselves which made our participation in the experience great! She then welcomed us inside her dining area and the interiors of the house are really well done. We had the prawns, Fish cutlets among other Sea food starters(I will leave those for you to find it out yourself). I wish we hadn't done our breakfast in the morning :P The desserts were so amazing too. The couple were so fun to talk to and me and my parents had a great time chatting with them. I recommend all of you reading this review, JUST GO AHEAD AND BOOK IT. HIGHLY RECOMENDED. BEYOND DOUBTS. You will know what Goa is after you meet this couple. Period.

No matter what your expectation from this experience is it will be surpassed. This experience is about food but what you get is so much more. Odette takes you on a journey through the history of Goan food and how much the amalgamation of different cultures has influenced it. She also shares with you her expertise on Goan history as far back as 3rd century. Joe and Odette are also excellent hosts who made us feel like we were catching up with friends over lunch. This experience is something we will carry with us for a long time and think of them every time we have Goan food or even Portuguese food :)

When I booked this experience all I was hoping for is good food and some insights on Goan recipes but this was so much more. Odette's knowledge of Goa and its history goes beyond just-food. She takes you on a journey of Goa through the ages and the delicious food served as a perfect medium to do so. We also got to cook fish in her kitchen and learn so much about why Goan cuisine is such a beautiful amalgamation of cultures. I can't emphasise how good the food was and the storytelling just made it 1000 times better. Odette and Joe are very warm people who made us feel very comfortable in their home. We will cherish this experience for many years to come and think of Odette and Joe whenever we have Goan/Portuguese food :)

This experience surpassed all my expectations. I cannot call myself a foodie anymore since the day I met Odette. She puts so much thought and precision into this experience and the food, that it’s unbelievable. I’m so thankful to both Joe and Odette for being so warm and actually being our family away from family in Goa. I do recommend this experience to everyone. The food, the experience and the conversations are all worth it.
