Eat at Home of Home Chefs

Delicious food cooked by amateur chefs…

Say goodbye to swish restaurants with predictable menus and sterile decors and discover the joys of ghar-ka-khana! Now we have the option of experiencing distinctive regional cuisine food that is authentic while being competitively priced. People who are good cooks but were cooking solely for themselves until now are now hosting meals in their homes for interested guests. There are so many great traditional dishes being made in people's own kitchens which others would never get to try otherwise.

Cuisine of the region or community to which the home chef belongs to is the cuisine for the meal.  Often the ingredients are sourced from their native state and cooking is done in authentic and traditional way. And along the way, you get a glimpse of the culture of the community or region. A spacious home and a warm smile for guests, make the experience complete!

Access the portals and start your gastronomic journey!

Websites presented below list out hosts, cuisines offered, price for the meal and dates on which the meal is offered. You need to register on the websites for free, select the meal offer that is open and pay the price online. Hosts prefer to keep the number of guests reasonably small, so that it is an intimate affair that lends itself to good conversation in the language of food!

Some of the cuisines on offer are Assamese, Sindhi, Saraswat, Bohri, Pathare Prabhu, Bengali etc. Since you are being hosted at the chef's homes, for reasons of security your background may be checked by the host by accessing your social media profile. In the course of enjoying the gastronomic experience, you will have an opportunity meet and socialize with other guests and in the process widen your circle of friends!
