Southern Indian Cooking Classes




Punyam Feast for good

Immerse you into the culture and cuisine of Southern India as part of a ‘Punyam Feast’. 

These 3.5 hour feasts are led by Sre and will leave your senses delighted, your tummy nourished, and your heart wide open. It includes:

  • A Southern Indian cooking class (2 mains, 2 sides, condiments and dessert)
  • An introduction to Ayurveda, the 3 doshas and creating ‘Sattvic’ meals to balance the mind, body and spirit
  • An immersion into the stories and culture of Kerala
  • Recipes and Shopping Guides to take home
  • A heart warming meal served in the traditional Keralan style

‘Punyam’, which is Sanskrit for ‘good deed’ or ‘good merit’, is a social enterprise. This means that once our costs have been taken care of, the profits go towards community development projects in Kerala, India.

It’s basically a delicious feel good feast for just $75 per person ($85 including a fish curry) – minimum 6 people.

A love of food…

Growing up amongst the palm trees, Sre watched his older brother cooking in the Ashram for Saptaham – an annual seven-day festival attended by hundreds of people. He was in awe at his brother’s intuitive, calm approach and ability to open hearts and connect communities using creative combinations of simple, healthy ingredients.

Sre brings a similar love filled style to his cooking, incorporating traditional Southern Indian flavours and spices to his light, vegetarian dishes. His warm smile will inspire and guide you as you step into the art of Indian spice mixing.

With a background in Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) and Yoga, Sre’s food is known as ‘Sattvic’ – Sanskrit for balancing the body, mind and spirit.
