Authentic Bengali Food in a Local Home in the Heart of Kolkata - Day Trip

Iti, a warm and welcoming retired British Airways executive, has been on a series of cooking shows on Indian TV where she demonstrates Bengali cuisine. She lives in Calcutta in an elegant, modern apartment with a garden terrace. Visit Iti in her home for a traditional Bengali tasting menu served on beautiful hand-painted terracotta plates. Bengali cuisine centers around seafood, lentils and vegetables redolent of flavors like mustard, poppy seeds, panch poran (a traditional Bengali five-spice blend) and coconut. Dishes might include pulao (fragrant saffron-flavored rice), dal (yellow mung lentils spiked with mango-flavored ginger and cumin), beguni (crispy eggplant fritters), alu jhinge posto (potatoes, zucchini, and yellow pumpkin cooked with a poppy seed paste), chingri malai curry (aromatic coconut cream prawns), or bhetki paturi (sea bass coated with a mustard paste and steamed in banana leaves - one of the best fish dishes we have ever had!). For dessert, you might try payesh (Bengali style rice pudding flavored with cinnamon and sweetened with date palm sugar) or another of her fantastic sweet desserts. Please note that this experience is not suitable for children. Also note that four groups larger than four travelers the meal will be served buffet style.
